On October 10th, Chestnut Park was invited to an exclusive opportunity at the instalment of Unzipped (also known as the Serpentine Pavilion) on King Street West. This structure has been drawing a lot of attention, and once visitors step inside, they are greeted with models of stunning condo developments including Torontos own long-awaited KING Toronto, developed by Westbank, Allied REIT and Bjarke Ingels.

 

 

 

This development is really going to change the look of King Street West. The area has been known for its low-rise historical brick architecture and vibrant lifestyle, which will soon be complemented by Toronto’s first project by ‘starchitect’ Bjarke Ingels. KING Toronto will be the third architectural addition to Canada from Westbank and The BIG Group.

 

 

 

 

KING Toronto was inspired by a Montreal Complex designed by Moshe Safdie. Mr. Gillespie of Westbank was fascinated by it – the series of interconnected concrete apartment designed for Expo 67. So, Mr. Ingels designed similar terraced condos on numerous balconies. A courtyard will allow people to move easily through the site.

 

 

 

 

This building will feature 16 stories with four peaks (or mountains) wrapping around a central courtyard. The design will help create a sense of community along King West, with a large focus on interaction.

 

Sales for this incredible development begin next week and Chestnut Park has Platinum access. Contact Kristen Duern for more information (416) 925-9191.
