The Freed Developments' project is taking its final shape at the corner of King and Bathurst. Designed by Montreal-based architects Saucier+Perrotte, Thompson Residences are comprised of a 15-storey tower fronting onto King Street and an 11-storey building just south along Stewart Street.

In our last update, the north building had one more floor to go before reaching its final height and the cladding was well underway. Now topped off at 15 storeys, the reflective black glazing has made its way up to the 13th floor.

The push-pull design of the glass wall is now clearly visible and gives an identifiable style to this mid-rise development.

In the images below, we can see that the Thompson Residences are bringing a much more urban feeling to that part of King Street, helping to change the predominately low-rise nature of this stretch by contrasting with the mostly 100-year-old brick buildings and houses that make up the bulk of its neighbours.

Thompson's closest neighbouring recent developments Fashion House and SIX50 King West are helping remake King Street as a high-density urban playground with on-street retail and restaurants that cater to the predominantly young demographic that are living in these buildings. Thompson Residences will add 408 condominium units to the ever-changing King West neighbourhood. Once completed next year, residents will enjoy the impressive views of the Toronto skyline from the Thompson's rooftop terrace and swimming pool.
