Facts

  • The primary challenge on this project was to develop a structural system that would support the tower and minimize the sway at the top within a narrow 15 m width, but would not interfere with the historically protected architectural elements in the bank building.
  • An atrium with hanging rainforest-style foliage will take up the first 6 floors in the center of the building.
  • The original One King West has been converted into 200 apartments, featuring a 6-storey atrium enclosing 42 private suites.
  • This unique building features a very slender condominium-hotel linked to the existing turn-of-the-century 12 storey Toronto Dominion Bank building.
  • The tower incorporated the circa-1913 Dominion Bank Building.
  • The tower's height-to-width ratio is approximately 11:1, which is much greater than the more usual 4 or 6:1 value. The tower has a gross construction area of 47,800 m² with 574 units and parking for 101 vehicles.
  • Parking levels, an atrium, a specialty theatre and an additional storey containing luxury townhouses were added to the bank building.
