DNA - 1005 King Street West & 1 Shaw Street DNA – 1005 King Street West & 1 Shaw Street
Downtown’s Next Address – DNA Condos – is located in the King West neighborhood. DNA’s design was influenced by the materials and look of the turn-of-the-century King West factories and warehouses. The limestone detailing is a throw back to an era when great brick buildings defined the street scape. The tinted and sandblasted glass combines with the steel to add multiple levels of sophistication. The first thing you feel when you enter the suites is the light cascading through the enormous, expansive windows. And a sense of space as you look around the open concept layouts with their nine foot ceilings. The condos are big spaces, full of light with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows stretching outside to terraces. These are condos with an urban zen style, ranging range from 500 to 1,700 square feet.

Stainless-steel appliances were paired with stainless-steel, custom-built cabinetry and mill work by the award-winning team, Burdifilek Interior Design.

Portland Park Village - 550 Front Street West & 11-13 Niagara Street Portland Park Village – 550 Front Street West & 11-13 Niagara Street

Ultra reasonable fees are kept low due to the few amenities (fitnes room). These condos range from 550 square feet to 2,000 square feet.

King Towns - 10-28 Laidlaw Street King Towns – 10-28 Laidlaw Street
The King Towns by Urbancorp (who has built pretty much every single stacked townhouse in the King West & Liberty Village area). Stretching along both sides of Laidlaw Street, most are stacked though some are the entire townhouse. There are smaller ones, but most are multi-level around 1,000 square feet. They have 2 or 3 bedrooms, most have a rooftop deck with a great view of the city. Many are upgraded with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. They have 2 or 3 washrooms and most have a gas fireplace. Parking is underground and there is a lot of street parking for visitors. This spot will become even more popular once King and Queen Streets are connected by the bridge (hence the new condo of the same name).

Electra Townhomes - Douro Street Electra Townhomes – Douro Street
The beautiful Electra Townhomes are in the Liberty Village part of King West, near downtown Toronto. I believe these are the first of the King West townhouses (I remember my wife and I going to the sales centre in 1998 when the area was just gravel and old factories). Because of their age, their are generally larger than the recently built ones. Many of the units in this small condo townhouse complex have extensive upgrades and great layouts. As one of the earlier Toronto townhomes in the Trendy King West area, Electra is built very well. It is close to Dominion as well as all the other amenities of the new Liberty Village. Many units include underground parking and spacious balconies or terrace overlooking the manicured properties of each home.

Douro Towns - Douro Street and Canniff Street Douro Towns – Douro Street & Canniff Street
Nestled in a complex wedged between the train tracks and King Street West, these are the towns just behind the Massey Harris Lofts. Another of the first stacked condo townhome complexes in the area. A slightly larger group than the Electra Lofts just west of here, there are fewer than either the Liberty Village Towns or the Sudbury Street Townhomes. As with the Electra Towns, these are larger and older units, with a bit more breathing room. Smaller units on the lower level with multi-level units above. They have balconies and rooftop terraces, along with underground parking. Some have hardwood floors, others have carpet. Some have original white kitchens and others have been upgraded with stainless steel appliances and other goodies.

King West Towns - 2-56 Shank Street King West Towns – 2-56 Shank Street
Something completely different from the rest of the King West stacked townhouses. These have been around since 1990, built by Copperfield Developments before Liberty Village and King West were anything close to what they are now. They are still stacked, but they are much larger, with many units close to 1,300 square feet. Originally promoted as executive townhouses, something bigger and more home-like for professionals that would be close to work downtown. Now, much more popular with a younger demographic, I think these provide better value than most of the others to the south. And there is something to be said for the mature trees on the older street. And farther from the trains!

60 Tecumseth - 60 Tecumseth Street 60 Tecumseth – 60 Tecumseth Street
Across the street from the older townhomes that are part of The Summit complex, these were completed in 2006 by Jack Eliav (with Brad Lamb, The Walsh Group and Core Architects Inc.). With only 10 units, this is a much smaller complex than most. These are not stacked towns per se, but split down the middle with five units on the west side and another five facing east. Each has their own private garage, plus a large terrace above. These Victorian-inspired townhomes are in the heart of the King West village, on a quiet residential street just south of King. They are over 2,000 square feet and have 10-foot ceilings on the main and lower levels, with 9-foot ceilings on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Hardwood floors are on the main level, a walkout to the terrace from the living room and a private roof-top terrace and stainless steel appliances.

The Kings Towns - 208 Niagara Street The Kings Towns – 208 Niagara Street
These are the towns located behind The Kings Lofts at 800 King Street West. The townhomes are at 208 Niagara Street, a quiet residential street just north of King. There are approx. 202 stacked townhouse units in this intimate enclave. Available are small one bedroom units without parking to three bedroom multi-level suites including parking and a roof top terrace. Sizes range from around 600 square feet up to house-sized units over 1,300 square feet. Some have two washrooms, others have ground level terraces. Many units have been upgraded and feature hardwood floors, granite counters, stainless appliances and pot lights.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

More than any other neighbourhood in Toronto, King Street West has undergone a dramatic transformation in the last few years. Back in the 1990s there were a few standard condo buildings at King and Bathurst, but further west the landscape was dominated by vacant land and abandoned industrial buildings. As far back as 1999, Toronto Life Magazine was already rating the King and Niagara area as one of the most up-and-coming places to live, based on how quickly real estate was selling, and at what percentage of asking price homes were going for.

The Summit condo buildings and townhouses at King and Bathurst were first, followed by CitySphere at 801 King W. Then there was a bit of a lull until UrbanCorp started buying up land and building row after row of stacked condo townhouses and lofts, which continues with their most recent phase, the King Towns, just west of Dufferin. The more upscale Massey Harris Lofts conversion and the construction of the DNA condos made this one of the hottest spots to live.

Single professionals, young families, and even some retired couples have made the community their own, changing it into a modern residential oasis, just a short walk from the art galleries, bars, restaurants, clubs and shopping on Queen West and on King itself. Easy access to the TTC, the Gardiner, and the nearby Dominion supermarket complete the picture of neighbourhood convenience.
