Signature building to sit in heart of old city

Upscale finishes, architecture will distinguish ‘gateway’ project in downtown Toronto

Valerie Hauch – Toronto Star

What’s old is becoming new again. One of the significant corners of early Toronto – King and Parliament Streets – will be the site of a 15-storey condominium designed by Core Architects.

The 330 King Street East address marks the eastern border of the original 10 blocks of the City of Toronto.

“We saw this as the gateway to Toronto,” says Brad Lamb, exclusive broker for the project, which is being developed by Lamb Development Corp., Sher Corp. and Hyde Park Homes.

“It needed to be a signature, beautiful building,” says Lamb of the structure which will have an exterior that employs red brick, bands of concrete, and glass. “It marks the start of downtown Toronto.”

Because the maximum building height just east of the site is eight stories, the King East will stand out, says Lamb.

He says that one of the things that has frustrated him as a broker in the past is that the standard of finishes is not always the best. The King East, he says, won’t be taking that route. The suites will have as standard finishes the sort of quality you’d normally get “as an upgrade,” he says.

The retail level at grade will include 13,000 square feet of space and will be two levels with a mezzanine.

There will be 212 residential units ranging in size from a 306-square-foot studio with a $149,000 price tag, to a 2,540-square-foot, two-bedroom-plus-den unit, priced at $1.6 million.

Parking costs an extra $30,000 and lockers are $3,500.

Most units have a balcony or terrace. Amenities include two guest suites, a meeting room and a party room.

All units come with six appliances, including stainless steel fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave and a white stackable washer/dryer.

Granite kitchen countertops are standard, as well as gas cooking and gas hookup on all terraces, balconies or patios.

The nine-foots ceilings will be exposed concrete. Other finishes include engineered wood floors throughout, except bathrooms, which will have porcelain tile and the laundry rooms which will have ceramic tiles; custom-designed European-style kitchen cabinetry and kitchen islands; oversized top-mount basin in the bathroom; deep soaker bathtub; rain-style shower head; and individual-controlled heating and air conditioning system utilizing a heat pump system.

Condo fees are 49 cents per square foot and first occupancy is expected to be Nov. 1, 2011.

King East is within walking distance of the Distillery District shops, minutes from downtown by car or transit, as well as Lake Shore Blvd. and the Gardiner Expressway.
