One of the most interesting projects we have blogged about in the past few weeks is TUX Condos, a new development by Great Gulf Homes. In the past, we discussed the look of the building and how cool King Street West is going to get in the next few years. Although we have an abundance of information on TUX, we still haven’t shared any renderings with you!
Well, fear not our friends. We at the Toronto Star’s NewInHomes.com have just received some very cool new renderings, and boy, are we impressed with what our friends over at Great Gulf Homes have planned for 357 King St. West.
For those who missed our blog entry about TUX Condos, here is a quick recap.
Located in the heart of the Entertainment District, TUX is expected to rise more than 40 storeys and feature roughly 350 suites. It’s expected (yet unofficial) that Great Gulf will partner with Quadrangle Architects.
What stands out most with the development is the colour. The black and orange combo on the steel tower is unique, and will surely stand out on the streetscapes of the downtown core. A tip of the hat to our friends at Great Gulf Homes for once again taking a bit of a risk and bringing a cool tower to Toronto.
It’s amazing how much the Entertainment District, but more interestingly King Street West, will evolve over the next few years. M5V and Victory Condos by Lifetime Developments have already taken hold of the area, while other developments like 400 King St. West by TerraCap, and the Westinghouse building at 355 King St. West by the Remington Group (King Blue) are in the works, and expected to hit the market soon.
What are your thoughts on the design by Great Gulf?What impact do you think TUX Condos will have on the area?
Are you excited about the future of King St. West?
