Toronto's Entertainment District used to be a place dominated by clubs and parking lots - of course this was only a few years ago. These days it is much easier to find cranes and construction hoarding than a parking spot, as the district is transformed into a functioning neighbourhood. Last year we saw the groundbreaking for Theatre Park, an architectsAlliance-designed 47-storey residential tower by Lamb Development Corp, Niche Developments, and Harhay Construction Management. Located on King Street West next door to the 105 year-old Royal Alexandra Theatre and steps away from Roy Thompson Hall, The Princess of Wales Theatre and the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Theatre Park will be a prime location for culture and fine arts enthusiasts.

The foundations for Theatre Park have been laid and the structure has recently breached ground level, revealing the early stages of the podium's construction. The project's ground floor will feature a public forecourt effectively widening the King Street sidewalk into a landscaped public space, and providing an often overlooked amenity in downtown condominium construction.

When complete, Theatre Park will feature a bar and restaurant at ground level and one above, while higher up residents will enjoy amenities such as a fitness centre, and a terrace with outdoor pool amongst other offerings.
