About the Project

The 330 King East anchors the intersection of King & Parliament respecting its context and projecting a modern and playful pattern of red brick with bands of concrete onto its facade. This treatment is inspired by the use of historical elements from neighbouring St. Lawrence Market.

The site which is bordered by King and Parliament created unusual challenges for the design process due to its octagonal shape, neighbouring buildings and setback requirements. Further issues of access required careful consideration during the evolution of the design.

The design solution, a series of stepped boxes addressed all the various requirements while maintaining efficient floor plates and suite configurations. CORE turned the setback requirement to its advantage by incorporating a series of wrap around terraces for both the amenities level and penthouse suites.
