    168 King St E, Toronto

    About this condo

    Condo Overview

    Few condos may be as sought-after as those at 168 King Street East: developed by Steven & Webster Callahan, the aptly named King George Square Condos offers exceptional suites in a prestigious location. This might just be the perfect place for prospective buyers to find Toronto condos for sale and pursue a luxurious lifestyle, deep in the downtown core.

    Completed in 2000, the 16-storey King George Square Condos looks distinguished beyond its years. The architects at Burka-Varacalli respected the abundance of heritage architecture found in St. Lawrence, the neighbourhood surrounding 168 King East. Accented by tall trees in front of (and even atop parts) of the building, the King George Square Condos features brick and stone cladding on its podium as well as its tower. The latter is set back from the street, which gives the impressive array of windows and secluded private balconies a magnificent sense of grandeur.

    Indeed, 168 King East’s overall design is refined and sophisticated. There are meticulous sculptural details extending from the cornices along the rooftop, all the way to the lintel above the main entryway. In the lobby, a 24-hour concierge service and a fireplace lounge welcomes the King George Square Condos’ residents with open arms.

    While the lobby is shared with businesses that occupy the commercial spaces in 168 King East’s podium, the rest of the amenities in the building are exclusive to those who actually live in the building. Residents have access to a well-equipped exercise room, a versatile recreation room, a billiards room, a rooftop terrace, and, tucked into some lush landscaping, a truly serene hot tub.

    The Suites

    The King George Square contains 156 downtown Toronto condos that are serene retreats in their own right – even without hot tubs of their own. Ranging in size from 700 to 1,400 square feet, these suites consist of one bedroom and two bedroom floor plans, the majority of which also boast sizeable dens.

    Similarly, almost all of the living spaces at 168 King East extend outside. Some boast access to multiple balconies, as well as a terrace, while at the very least, smaller suites feature Juliette balconies. The atmosphere inside these homes feels bright and fresh regardless of how much outdoor space one has, as suites boast floor-to-ceiling windows, some even stretching from wall to wall as well.

    The Neighbourhood

    The King George Square Condos is located in one of Toronto’s first named neighbourhoods, which dates back to 1815. The well-established commercial scene around 168 King East may not have been around as long as the area itself, but that fact can be overlooked since it’s home to many delicious bars, restaurants, and cafés along King.

    Moreover, there’s even more dining options a block south, on Front Street East. For those living at 168 King who prefer to eat in, residents can find the historic St. Lawrence Market on Front by Jarvis Street — just about a three-minute walk from 168 King East.

    The walk there is so short that residents of the King George Condos won’t mind taking a quick detour through the nearby St. James Park, next to the grand and similarly named Gothic cathedral. A stroll through the park is a great way to work up an appetite before heading south though Market Lane Park, which opens up to a vibrant public square across the street from the St. Lawrence Market.

    Transportation

    While the building happens to be located in a walkable neighbourhood, the area around 168 King East is equally as accommodating for residents who need to venture out further around the city. Drivers can head south on Jarvis, the first major street west of the King George Square Condos, for access to the Gardiner Expressway in about five minutes.

    Alternatively, for those living at 168 King East who prefer public transit, the 504 Streetcar stops nearby, at Jarvis Street, as it travels east and west through the downtown core along King. Conveniently, the 504 Streetcar takes riders to King and St. Andrew Stations, where travelers can transfer onto subway trains moving north and south along the Yonge-University-Spadina line. Both King and St. Andrew Stations are the first stops north of Toronto’s major transit hub, Union Station, where riders can access streetcars, GO Transit buses and trains, VIA Rail trains and the UP Express service to Pearson International Airport.
