Allied Properties REIT and RioCan REIT in joint venture, are working with Hariri Pontarini Architects on the King Portland Centre, a 12-storey office building and a 15-storey condo residential development in the heart of the King West District. Stepping back from the street, the base podium will feature large bricked arches to frame the ground floor retail and help connect the existing buildings with the new.
Focus on Heritage
Respecting the material form of the neighbourhood, the development will seamlessly integrate with the existing Victorian commercial building to the east and three renovated rowhouses, as well as the existing interior lanes and courtyards. In addition, green terraces will be created as an amenity for the office workers and residents. Pedestrian access will be encouraged between the spaces.
With direct access to a myriad of streetcar routes, close proximity to subway lines, ample public parking in the immediate area and situated minutes from the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard, King Portland Centre is the place to be!
The guiding principle is long-term sustainability, with a target of achieving minimum of LEED Gold designation for the residential portion, and LEED Platinum for the office building. A true mixed-use project, the King Portland Centre assembles a complex block of disparate buildings and functions into a cohesive development.
King West has been compared to New York’s SoHo Village. It’s a community filled with a multitude of shops offering the latest fashion, specialty services, 24-hour grocery stores, delightful cafés, unique galleries, boutique hotels and award winning restaurants. It is a seamless blend of friendly neighbours in a historical district, adding an undeniable charm to one of Toronto’s most popular destinations. King West caters to all ages and attracts young professionals who want to live and work in Toronto’s urban core.
