After launching sales last year, 4 The Kingsway by North Drive will soon hit a new milestone when construction begins this spring. Located at the intersection of The Kingsway and Bloor Street West, the boutique condominium will sit as the gateway into the prestigious and historic Kingsway community when construction is completed in late 2017.
With its tree-lined streets, stately homes, and idyllic park-like setting along the Humber River Valley, the Kingsway is one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods. Recognizing the importance of the building’s architecture in keeping with the community’s heritage, North Drive worked with renowned architect Richard Wengle to design a contemporary Beaux-Arts inspired mid-rise.
“We want 4 The Kingsway to be a legacy building that sets a new tone for the surrounding established neighbourhood,” said Jordan Morassutti, partner at North Drive. “We strived to create homes that complement the strong architectural character of the community while offering an elevated standard of living. In The Kingsway, this means respecting a longstanding neighbourhood aesthetic.”
With a facade clad in stone and brick, the neoclassical, Flat Iron style structure boasts a traditional aesthetic mixed with the old-world cachet and elegance of Parisian apartment buildings.
“4 The Kingsway fills a void in the luxury west-end condominium market,” said Robert Fidani, partner, North Drive. “We wanted to deliver a different take on what modern can mean, starting with a classical touch point and branching out.”
Notable features like the stylish porte cochere and the turret capped with a zinc-clad dome add a touch of opulence to the contemporary design of the building.
“4 The Kingsway is a timeless building, not an of-the-moment building that will lose its flair,” said Wengle, who is known for his custom Toronto manors. “It will be a defining landmark as you drive west and a beacon to the neighbourhood.”
The elegance and attention to detail of the exterior is echoed inside where common areas and living spaces are designed by award-winning interior designer Brian Gluckstein. The beautiful lobby provides a warm welcome to homeowners and visitors with its soft, neutral palette, accented with pops of black and gold.
The suites are just as impressively appointed with high quality features and finishes including open concept living spaces, five-piece ensuites with marble mosaic floors and gourmet kitchens with Wolfe and Sub-Zero appliances. From the beautiful washed wood floors to the heritage-inspired crown molding, Gluckstein elevates each classical element with a modern touch to craft comfortable spaces with luxurious finishes.
“The suites feel like home,” said Gluckstein. “Each suite is designed to make you feel like you’ve arrived to a warm, welcoming place of your own.”
Units at 4 The Kingsway range in size from 1,291 square feet to over 3,000 square feet and are priced from $1 million to $3 million. To learn more about the development register online today.
