The King East
330 King Street East, Toronto, Canada
Lamb Development Corp.
GFA 177,000 sq.ft.
The King East wraps 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 Parliament and King and surrounded by both Hydro and street car lines prevented fly forming work till the 5th floor. CORE's use of precast installation on the lower floors provided a unique solution to the limited access of the site.
CORE’s design addressed the needs for adequate setbacks while maintaining efficient floorplates and overall design aesthetics.
