Lifetime Developments Proposes Condos at King and Dufferin

1182 & 1221 King West

By: Jack Landau, Published Jul 22 2015

A new development proposal has been submitted by Lifetime Developments to the City of Toronto asking for rezoning that would allow the construction of two new condominium towers at King and Dufferin, in an area where the rapidly growing Liberty Village community transitions in Parkdale.

The 19 and 21-storey towers, designed by Core Architects, would each offer three levels of underground parking, commercial uses on the ground floors, and a total of 745 residential units between the two buildings. 1221 King West, the shorter of the two towers, would include 2,240 square metres of ground level retail space with 301 residential units above, while the taller tower at 1182 King West would include 444 residential units and more ground floor retail.

Rising to respective heights of 220 feet and 239 feet on opposing corners of the King-Dufferin intersection, the development would replace an existing single-storey commercial plaza at 1182 King West, and a McDonalds, three commercial properties, and adjacent surface parking lot at 1221 King West. The historic building occupying the southwest corner at King and Dufferin—currently a BMO Bank branch—is not included in the proposal, and would remain untouched.
