Over the past several years no developer has put more into the King West Village area than has Urbancorp, having been the first developer to kick off the revitalization of the former Massey Ferguson industrial site fifteen years ago. Now, on some of the last of that land in King West Village, Urbancorp are teaming up with First Capital Realty to bring one of the most sophisticated new condominium and retail complexes to the city at 1100 King West, across the street from Lamport Stadium.

Called Kingsclub, the site will be home to 638 condominium suites spread through four interconnected mid-rise residential buildings of between 9 and 17 storeys tall, fronted by an impressive line of double-height retail along King. Tact Design are responsible for the articulated multi-grid look of the project, where glass and steel mix with brick and stone to create an eyecatching and welcoming street presence and dynamic skyline. Tact's approach means that strict modernism is tempered by the warmth of locally sourced brown Eramosa limestone marble and buff coloured brick to bring a tactile quilaity to the retail frontage and condominium towers, using these materials to frame sleek windows and ranks of glazed balconies.

Up top, the east-most building will feature an extensive roof terrace with infinity pool. While the other renderings are not quite up-to-date in their depiction of this portion of the project, this dedicated rendering gives you a good idea of how this space will look with its great view of the Downtown skyline to the east.

Down below, Frst Capital, one of Canada's largest commercial retail developers, and the restorers of the Barrymore Furntiture building just to the southeast (now housing WestElm and others), will be looking for first-rate tenants to fill the double height spaces, along a stretch of King which will always benefit from daytime sunlight.
