    Nice find. Does Allied own this building? I wonder about the extent of the addition.

    ^ I'm not so sure about that AG. Most of the rear part of the building only goes up 3 floors and the app. says it's for floors 5, 6 & 7. I think they may take it all the way to the street.

    Does not look like this is an Allied building - no Allied plaque beside the front door, and not listed on the Allied web site. Allied owns 455 King West and 469 King West - the buildings on either side of the 461 King West building.

    UD,
    Months, I heard that the owners of this building decided not to go ahead with the zoning review. Then, recently, I heard they were contemplating going bigger than 3 storeys.

    Are you saying Quadrangle is now engaged on this project and for what size of building?

    Allied has just acquired three new properties including 461 King Street West. In time (not soon), they envisage a QRC West-style intensification above this property and 455 King Street West, directly to the east.

    From the presser:

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. These structures work beautifully on their own. Of course, if intensification here is going to happen, I think the model established by QRC is a good one to follow, but I'd rather that this stretch of King remain untouched.

    They should rename this part of town Allied King West. If anyone is going to intensify this part of town I'm glad it's Allied.

    No thanks, I'm honestly fine with these buildings the way they are.

    The current buildings are perfectly fine the way they are, but it's only a matter of time before they are developed. Allied actually puts historic buildings into good use, they don't just keep slap historic faces onto the front of a building and call it "historic". I wouldn't be terribly disappointed if Allied developed this property.

    Wow, so Allied has almost completely taken over the south side of King between Spadina and Portland. I believe this is the assembly:

    Allied is a good landlord, but I wonder whether we're at the point where concentration of ownership is starting to be a concern. They almost have a monopoly on brick-and-beam office space in the area.

    If they could pull a QRC and leave the heritage structures mostly intact I'd be pretty happy with that.
