This project is similar to one that was just built in Burlington at THIS LOCATION.

Here is a picture of that project from Burlington:

Imagine something like that ^ along King Street with a 6-storey apartment in behind and you get the 120 & 124 King St W project.

I like it.

Also, how many 120 King St. Wests are there in Hamilton, three? Google maps gave me one in Dundas and one downtown but didn't give me this one in Stoney Creek.

There is a King Street East and West for all of the former separate cities (Dundas, Stoney Creek, Hamilton, etc.). After amalgamation the street names didn't change. Google Maps says that this location is on King Street East of the former Hamilton boundaries, but it is actually on King Street West of the former boundaries of the City of Stoney Creek. It's kind of confusing, I hope that isn't too hard to understand, lol.

When I lived in the 'burbs, this type of project became popular. It felt oddly out of place, given the setback, architectural style and being surrounded by cookie-cutter houses.

Here's an example, in Oakville: http://goo.gl/maps/f0xCE

But it would be so appropriate for certain properties on King Street in the core.

Just walk or drive west along King from, say, Wentworth. You'll see a number of vacant lots or "abandoned" (unrentable) properties, which would be well suited for this kind of project. The combo of live/work/commercial street-level townhomes with residential uses above brings good density and affordability.

Because the boundary jogs a bit, the properties across the street are on King St E Hamilton. Of the four corners at the intersection of King and Centennial, three are in Stoney Creek and one (SW) is in Hamilton.

The name of this development is "Village Creek" and it is under construction.

The thread name needs to be changed from...

120 & 124 King St W | ? | 6fl & 2fl | Proposed

to

Village Creek | ? | 6fl & 2fl | Under Construction

Is the Phase 2 building rental units or condo?

The building design looks more like a condo building to me, and the proposal PDF has the word "condominium" splashed throughout.

However, wouldn't these get pre-sold before hand? I've never seen any listing or reference to this building anywhere else.

Phase 1 is all rentals, and there haven't been any sales for phase 2, so it is probably rentals as well.
