Liberty Village has seen tremendous changes in recent years as the former industrial district has been transformed by new condominiums and building renovations into a functioning mixed-use community. While some people question the area's density, the burgeoning population—thanks to large-scale developments like King West Condominiums, Plaza's recently completed three-tower condominium complex on East Liberty Street—has given the area quite a vitality.
Designed by Gabriel Bodor Architect and Quadrangle Architects, King West's three towers rise to 24, 24 and 25 storeys, in a style that reinterprets the "divided light" windows of the historic factory buildings which long dominated this area of the city. Residents and those who frequent the area will also know King West Condos for its impressive public art, Guardians, the first permanent outdoor installation by internationally acclaimed Swiss artist Olaf Breuning. King West also sets itself apart from the other condominium developments in this neck of the woods by bringing an unprecedented selection of amenities to the table.
Residents at King West Condominiums have access to a wide range of amenities, many of which you would expect in a condo, while others are rare finds. While all buildings of any size have a fitness club these days, here you will find 20,000 square feet dedicated to it. Beyond the weight training, aerobic, and yoga facilities seen below, you can add several games tables and special rooms, and a wellness centre which includes spa facilities.
King West Condos has much more in store for the sporting enthusiast. This recent winter has proven that we live in a cold weather climate, but Toronto has a large community of avid golfers who spend upwards of half the year restricted to indoor driving ranges. Residents at King West don't have to travel south or find a driving range to get some practice. Instead, they can work on their golf swing using the building's professional sports simulator.
King West Condos also offers a two-lane five-pin bowling alley, an unusual and fun amenity, rare in the condominium world, and great for parties.
For a movie night with friends, or maybe a major sporting event, King West Condominiums has an HD movie screening room featuring tiered seating with comfy wingback chairs. The room can can accommodate up to 30 people.
On top of the complex's podium, a greenspace terrace gives residents a relaxing outdoor area to unwind in the sun or shade, while a rooftop party room and terrace provides outstanding views over the lake from Humber Bay, across Exhibition Place, and to the Downtown skyline in the east.
With the array of amenities, and well-placed prices, King West Condominiums was a hot seller in Liberty Village, but some suites to remain. When we stopped in at King West Condominiums last year we also viewed the project's model suites, which allows interested buyers to view the full potential of their suite before making the final steps in buying a new home.
