GREAT GULF AND RIVEROAKS BREAK GROUND ON KING WEST
Toronto, September 2018 – Great Gulf and Riveroaks broke ground on a 42 storey condominium development in the heart of Toronto’s financial district at the corner of King St. West and Blue Jays Way.
357 King West is perfectly situated in a vibrant neighbourhood with the best dining and entertainment options in the city. Home to TIFF, one of the world’s most important film festivals, it’s steps away from the Rogers Centre, Scotiabank Arena, the CN tower, Ripley’s Aquarium, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Roy Thompson Hall and more.
“With so much dynamism, we created a building that’s adaptable and reflective of this area,” said Niall Collins, President Great Gulf Residential. “To support the free movement of transit, we’ve minimized parking spaces with one bicycle locker for every bedroom and dedicated 18 spots to car-share which supports a modern transportation strategy.”
Designed by Quadrangle with interiors by Figure 3 and Ferris + Associates Inc. landscape architects, the 324 unit development features one to three-bedroom condo units ranging from 521 ft2 to 1271 ft2. Its light-filled 3rd floor comes equipped with a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a relaxing yoga studio. With many unique features, like bike lockers, parcel pick-up service, meeting rooms and communal workspaces, 357 King has been designed to enrich the lives of its residents. The building’s 42nd floor takes entertaining to new heights. From stylish lounges to a private dining room with a well-appointed catering kitchen, it offers a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces perfect for both formal dinners and relaxed gatherings.
“We’re really excited about this development. It was initially a challenging site that inspired us to come up with innovative solutions to create a highly desirable and successful location. This is quite an accomplishment which aligns with the City of Toronto’s vision for the future development of King St. West,” said Dani Cohen, CEO King Financial Holdings Limited.
