357 King West is a new condo development currently in preconstruction at 357 King Street West, Toronto. The development is scheduled for completion in 2021. Sales for available units range in price from $474,990 to over $899,990. 357 King West has a total of 324 units, sizes range from 521 to 1095 square feet.
In 2014, Toronto’s Entertainment District had one more condo on the market than the market could bear, and Great Gulf put its plans for Tux Condos at the southwest corner of King and Blue Jays Way back on the shelf. Three years later, a Site Plan Application has been resubmitted to the City, with a somewhat reworked design by Quadrangle. Great Gulf has dropped the name Tux, and now proposes to build 357 King Street West with rental apartments in place of condominium units.
Now proposed with two more floors, some other design revisions have been made to the 42-storey tower. Notably, a cutout planned for the 7th storey and above has been moved down to the 3rd storey. Its copper-coloured ceiling appears to have been muted in tone somewhere, and a copper stripe running up the building between the black and white cladding sections has been deleted. Also of note, the twin columns which supported the building above Tux’s cutout have been replaced with paired V-shaped columns.
