Pictures & Floor Plans (if available)
One King West is a unique condominium project designed to operate in the spirit of the classic 19th century “apartment hotels” which provided superior and personalized service to long-term residents for whom their suite was a city ‘pied-a-terre’, and one of several homes. The development has four basic elements…. The “HISTORIC”phase consists of the landmark 1912 Dominion Bank building (subsequently head office of the TD Bank) which is being elegantly restored and renovated into 200 apartments.
An interior atrium will rise from level 5 to level 11, enclosing 42 very private suites overlooking a peaceful gallery space. The “TOWER” is a totally new high-rise structure, which is being constructed beside and above the original building. It will contain 360 apartments. Although carefully designed to complement the style and materials of the historic base, this modern skyscraper soars 51 storeys, and will be the tallest residential building in Canada. All suites above the 20th floor have some lake exposure; above the 30th, the views will be spectacular.
The RESIDENTS’ LOUNGE is located on the 12th and 13th floors. Originally lavishly constructed as the executive office level, this baronial, double height chamber will provide the owners and guests of One King West with an elegant and comfortably furnished ‘common room’, featuring complimentary breakfasts, beverages and light snacks at all hours. On the 17th floor is a gym, sauna, whirlpool, swimming tank and access to a roof garden.
The DOMINION CLUB, on the main, 2nd and 3rd floors, encompasses the spectacular original banking halls, which are being renovated into private social and business clubs. Featuring 30 foot high ceilings which are gilded with the crests of the Canadian provinces, marble floors and pillars, soaring cathedral windows, the atmosphere is from another continent and indeed another century. This area is not legally part of the condominium, but the developer will provide complimentary memberships to all suite owners.
For many owners, One King will not be their primary residence, but a city apartment, a private office, an investment, (possibly all of the above).
