King West is the street that never sleeps. By day, you’ll spot brunch-goers with yoga mats slung across their backs, and by night, well-dressed revelers dashing between restaurants and nightclubs. WEST Condos by Aspen Ridge Homes is the new kid on the block, a boutique condominium complex with two 12-and 14-story towers. Located at 89 Niagara Street, the residences offer modern design and distinctive amenity spaces.
WEST Condos was designed by Babak Eslahjou of CORE Architects Inc., a Toronto-based firm that has completed over 150 residential condominium projects across the GTA. The design reflects the site’s industrial heritage, with a mix of materials and angular forms. Inside, guests and residents alike will be greeted by the welcoming lobby, which boasts comfortable seating and an elongated concierge desk. Interior designer Mike Niven describes the aesthetic of the common areas as “high design, relaxed vibe, with a slice of humour” — apparent in his choice of finishes and furniture.
On work-from-home days, residents can head to the café for free wifi, built-in booth seating and lounge furniture. Host a get-together in the stylish party room, characterized by a wet bar, sectional seating and panoramic views of the city, or work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art gym with cardio machines, weight training equipment and an area for stretching.
The family zone promises to be a big hit with the young and young-at-heart, outfitted with foosball and ping pong tables, swinging chairs and a large table for crafts. The 6th floor roof terrace, equipped with barbecues, dining tables, an outdoor fire feature and plenty of seating, will become your go-to spot before a summertime night out with friends.
The one bedroom, one bedroom plus den, two bedroom, two bedroom plus den and three bedroom suites range from 468 to 955 square feet. Suites are defined by nine foot ceilings, 7 ½” engineered flooring, front-load washer and dryers, and private balconies or terraces. The flat slab European-style kitchens are complete with granite countertops, condo-size appliances including 18″ dishwashers, under-cabinet LED lighting, ceramic tile backsplashes and undermount stainless steel sinks. Washrooms include custom-designed vanities, ceramic tile shower surrounds with glass doors, handheld shower heads and chrome accessories. Prices start from $475,990.
WEST Condos is only a four minute walk from the King streetcar line, allowing residents to travel around the city with ease. Dinner options are limitless with eateries like Buca, Spice Route, WVRST, The Keg and Pizza Libretto at your fingertips. Grab a drink at Home of the Brave, Belfast Love, Cibo Wine Bar, Locals Only or Banknote, and then hit up a nearby nightclub or lounge. Fitness junkies will love the variety of studios along King, including SoulCycle, Moksha Yoga, Fit Factory, Studio KO and Cykl.
The WEST Condos presentation centre is now open at 36 Nelson Street. Visit from Monday to Thursday between noon and 6pm, or on weekends from noon to 6pm.
