Proposal for a 5-storey addition to the existing 4-storey non-residential building. The proposed addition will have a floor area of approximately 3060.20 square metres.

Current site:

dang, it feels like every site within king west has witnessed some sort of redevelopment plan / interest in the past 20 years
The lane running between all these proposed buildings on this block will be jam-packed one they are completed.

Intention to Designate under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act - 600 King Street West

This report recommends that City Council state its intention to designate the listed heritage property at 600 King Street West (Beatty Manufacturing Company Ltd.) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.

The property at 600 King Street West is situated at the north-east corner of the intersection of King Street West and Portland Street. It contains a four-and-a-half-storey, brick-clad building constructed in 1901 to the designs of architects Chadwick & Beckett for the Beatty Manufacturing Company Ltd. Exhibiting the Edwardian Classical style, the building is a finely-designed representative of the late-19th and early-20th-century warehouses which provide the King-Spadina neighbourhood with its distinctive heritage character. It was identified as a contributing property in the proposed King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District, adopted by City Council in 2017.

Listed on the City's inaugural heritage register by City Council on June 20, 1973, the property at 600 King Street West is amongst the earliest properties in Toronto to be recognized for its heritage value. The factory at 600 King Street West was adaptively re-used as a brewery/restaurant in 1988 by Roel Bramer of Bramfield Restaurants Ltd., to the designs of the architects Kearns Mancini. A change of use was permitted through the addition of an onsite, craft brewery and bakery, which continued the zoned, manufacturing use of the property.

Heritage Planning staff have undertaken further research and evaluation and determined that the heritage property at 600 King Street West meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the criteria prescribed for municipal designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act under all three categories of design, associative and contextual values. As such, the property is a significant built heritage resource.

Designation enables City Council to review proposed alterations for the property, enforce heritage property standards and maintenance, and refuse demolition.​
A new private members club is coming to Toronto at this exact location to be exact! The name is called "Clio".

Taken from the recent press release published on The Star

"What he came up with was Clio, a four-storey, 31,000-square-foot, indoor-outdoor space with lounges, dining room, cinema, rooftop terrace, galleries and rooms for curated cultural experiences, including guest speakers, art exhibits and live music.

“I intend on making this club a unique and interesting experience, one that’s elevated but fun at the same time,” Khabouth says when we chat this week. “It’s by no means going to be the stuffy, private club environment. And it’s going to be a lot more diverse compared to what people have seen in other, high-end private clubs. It will be diverse in every way.”
