“We have brought together an exceptional development team to create an urban residence that pays tribute to its heritage while celebrating the city’s future. We have carefully preserved and restored the turn-of-the-century historic façade, which will form the foundation for, and be in contrast to, a sleek, modern glass tower.”
In terms of nuts and bolts, the building will be 17 storeys and will offer 132 residential units as well as 4,000 square feet of ground-level retail space. Amenities will include a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a guest suite and an entertainment room. Parking is ‘Manhattan-style’ whereby you’re taken via elevator to your parking level. How Big City!
But we’re most interested in the clues as to what the building will look like from the street – few visuals exist as of yet. Mr. Macaulay’s characterization suggests King Plus will please the eye and add some design chops to the block.
Further, the project’s supposed reported modern feel is in keeping with Plus Development Group’s innovative marketing strategy. For example, interested people can wave their smart phone across a QR code on the exterior hoarding and be linked automatically to the King + website for up-to-the-minute project information (which reminds us what is happening with building permits in NYC).
