King Blue: About This Project
King Blue is a two-tower condo development in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District.
Currently in preconstruction, the 48-storey North Tower will feature luxurious suites, abundant amenities, and a world-class retail podium.
The building stands at the intersection of King Street West and Blue Jays Way, minutes from Toronto’s most iconic venues.
With an occupancy date of June 2019, King Blue will put residents at the epicenter of amazing, giving them access to sports, theatre, music, fine dining, and upscale shopping.
King Blue: Design
Rather than tear down the old, the condo’s architects re-purpose it.
For example, the industrial brick walls of the Westinghouse Building lend the condo a warehouse vibe, while its 6-storey retail podium sports a very modern glazed-curtainwall.
Although 355 King Street West is Greenland’s first Canadian development, it certainly won’t be the last.
In fact, the Chinese firm is already building Canada’s first Theatre Museum and Primus-brand hotel, both of which will be located in King Blue.
The luxury Primus hotel reportedly boasts 122 “over-sized rooms,” a rooftop terrace, and pool.
King Blue: The Space
Unit 1208 consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a den.
The apartment’s split layout offers ample privacy, while 9-foot ceilings add to the sense of space.
King Blue’s master bedroom is beautiful and luxurious, complete with an ensuite bathroom and balcony access.
Boasting a large closet, the 2nd bedroom opens up onto the spacious living and dining rooms.
355 King West’s gorgeous kitchen flaunts a breakfast bar, stainless-steel or paneled appliances, and granite countertops.
Another highlight is the den, which functions as a storage area or office.
According to BlogTO, every room has its own “exceptional touches.” This includes rough-ins for wall-mounted TVs, engineered hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and marble accents in the bathrooms.
Speaking of which, Unit 1208 has two. The first bathroom is part of the master suite, while the second is in the foyer.
Finally, there’s also a small laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer, making every wash easy and convenient.
