Red face TORONTO | 401-415 King St. W. | 431 ft / 131.5 m | 39 FLOORS

Currently occupied by a 1-storey LCBO (constructed & approved in 2009 with an agreement with the City that a proposal for a substantially more intense use would follow in the future). LCBO will be a tenant in the new building. The subject property also contains a heritage-listed building (which appears to be a part of the facade for the new structure).


King-spadina - RENDERING BY CORE ARCHITECTS

The City's Preliminary Report will be presented at the Feb 16, 2011 Toronto East York Community Council meeting. More details to come...

King West is just getting more and more chic. Awesome project, and no doubt a perfect fit with the 'hood that is developing here.

That building doesn't even look very old.

Beautiful, much improved design. This project is still very preliminary but will be worth the wait in the end.

The new design changes are pure mindlessness. Random appropriation of popular "modern" styles.

I like how they managed to make the 2 towers feel like 2 different towers, but yet still distinctly part of the same building, through the mixing of the 2 facade treatments on the large base. if curtainwall is used on the taller tower (unlikely) this could turn out to be quite nice.

The older design had a superior vernacular program. The proportions complimented the surrounding warehouse buildings in the 'nabe.

Although I do prefer the twin tower massing plan of the new design.

I admit that I'd probably like the new design more if I didn't see the old render in the first place.

The mid-rise on the corner is much better than that boring glass tower to its east.
