Condo of the week: 700 King Street West
700 King Street West is a spacious three bedroom, four bathroom suite on the market for $1,620,000. Located at Bathurst and King, the 14-storey building, which still looks more like an office tower than a residential condo, was converted into the Westside Lofts in 2001.
With retail space on the main level, the interior of the nondescript building is more unique than expected. This 11th floor unit features a rotunda-style layout, a curved dramatic foyer and high sculpted ceilings. At 2,800 square feet, the flat provides ample room for a couple or family.
King West is one of the city's most desirable areas for condo owners. The rebranded street was once a desolate stretch of industrial buildings (here's a few retro photos to refresh your memory), and is now exploding with retail, popular restaurants and an overdevelopment of new condo projects.
A blackout. There's plenty of natural light in this suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and an impressive panoramic view of the city. You'll never need a flashlight.
MOVE ON IF
You need more bling on King. The neighbourhood is trendy but not as posh and polished as, say, Yorkville. Condo amenities are basic (fitness studio, party room), and the dated bathrooms could stand a modern makeover.
Worth the $1.6M asking? Have your say in the comments section.
