About the Project

510-530 King Street East exemplifies an approach by which a mixed-use development can be knitted into a historic district. With its loft-style units, high glazed retail spaces at grade and distinguishing masonry arches, Corktown Phase II exemplifies a sensitive and contextual response to urban intensification. The design for the eight storey structure features a brick and glass façade along King Street, broken into four components to reflect the finer-grained rhythm of the existing buildings in the neighbourhood. Culminating in an expansive green roof, the building steps back as the height increases, creating a series of private terraces with landscaped edges. Incorporating a landscape buffer around the perimeter of the site, the project has also added new street trees on the sidewalk to enhance the urban tree canopy along King Street East.
