1181 Queen West Condos is a new mid-rise residential tower taking shape on a prominent corner of Toronto’s trendy West Queen West neighbourhood. The project by Skale Developments features a 15-storey, BDP Quadrangle-designed building with sleek interiors by The Design Agency.


Construction kicked off in June 2019 when the existing retail plaza and Gladstone Cafe were demolished to make way for the new development. Shoring took place throughout the summer, followed by the start of excavation in October. Excavation continued in early 2020 and wrapped up by May when the foundation and underground levels reached three storeys. A tower crane was installed shortly thereafter, paving the way for forming work to begin on the underground floors. This continued for the remainder of the year until crews reached grade level in December.


Today, the building stands at three-storeys above grade as workers pour concrete for the fourth floor. Reinforced concrete columns and supports for subsequent levels are visible from the street.


When construction wraps up in 2022, 1181 Queen West Condos will feature a wedge-shaped design that follows the irregular shape of the lot on the southeast corner of Queen Street West and Sudbury Street. The front façade is clad in a mix of metals, glass and brick, and boasts a terraced design created by a series of setbacks from the fifth to the top floor. The terraced shape and setbacks complement the surrounding buildings and also create opportunities for large balconies and terraces.


Inside, the project will house 112 suites ranging from 628 to 1,309 square feet in size. Available layouts are bright and spacious and offer one- to three-and-a-half bedroom floorplans. Standard finishes include nine- or ten-foot ceilings, five-inch engineered wood floors, quartz countertops in kitchens and bathrooms, and an integrated appliance package.

Pricing at 1181 Queen West Condos starts from $679,900. To learn more, visit the project listing on BuzzBuzzHome.
