Six50 King West was conceived to address the multiple goals and challenges of the developer, the concerns of the City and of local residents.
The developer requested a mix of residential units which included entry level suites, townhouses, two level penthouses, amenity space, retail, and below grade parking.
Inspired by the back-to-nature aesthetic of the green movement, the developer describes Six50 as a building that’s alive with green, not just concrete and glass. A re-imagined historical property wrapped in a boxwood hedge, Six50’s visual juxtaposition of old brick and new green shoots makes for a contemporary chic, as well as an environmentally friendly design statement.
The Developer wished to present a “Green” high-rise residence that embodied light, glass and transparency, the antithesis of the perception of energy efficient homes. The architectural nomenclature addresses two unique streetscapes and each other.
Green and growing horizontal details of hedging throughout the height of the buildings accent the modern clean character that this LEED Registered building adds to this corner of older Toronto.
