About this condo
Minto 775 is a jack-of-all-trades: it features timeless red brick along the base, while sleek layers of glass rise above. In fact, the condos at 775 King Street West & 78 Tecumseth Street take up the good part of the block, making the podium feel robust and sturdy. While the podium makes up the first 5 storeys, technically two towers comprise the rest of Minto 775.
Designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, and with interiors by II by IV Design, the tallest part of Minto 775 reaches to a humble 16 storeys. The building was completed in 2013 by Minto Group Inc., and the Toronto condos for sale within are sure to please everyone from long-time Toronto residents to millennials looking for their first place to call home.
The extravagant lobby, for example, caters to those in search of luxury in a condo. Outdoorsy types will love all of the communal outdoor space in the building, including a courtyard and a rooftop terrace with barbecues. Those with furry friends will be glad to hear about the pet friendly attitude at 775 King West & 78 Tecumseth.
Other amenities available to residents include a gym, a party room, a meeting room, concierge and security services, visitor parking, and the pièce de résistance: an outdoor lounge with a fireplace and film screening area.
Additionally, a LEED certification has been granted to 775 King West & 78 Tecumseth. Not only does this make residents feel better about their carbon footprints, but it saves them money at the same time. For those who read the word LEED and feel like it sounds too abstract, some eco-friendly elements in the building include a green roof and rainwater harvesting. Plus, for those concerned with emissions from vehicles, there’s a car share onsite and charging stations for electric cars.
While some buildings with hundreds of units don’t contain a good amount of range when it comes to size, Minto 775 is quite the opposite. The smallest units in the building start at around 350 square feet, ideal for first-time buyers (anyone not planning to procreate any time soon). On the other end of the spectrum are a few massive units, the largest of which reaches to nearly 2,000 square feet.
Speaking of large, one of the penthouses at 775 King West & 78 Tecumseth is filled with concrete pillars and wall-to-wall windows, giving it a hint of that coveted soft loft vibe.
Actually, floor-to-ceiling and/or wall-to-wall windows are frequent fixtures throughout Minto 775 — although that’s not surprising considering all that glass on the exterior). Open concept layouts, 8-10 foot ceilings, and balconies can also be found in most units, although some unique homes boast floating staircases that connect two storeys.
Besides the penthouses, suites range from studio to two bedrooms. And layout or size aside, each is finished with contemporary details like stainless steel appliances, granite counters in kitchens and marble in bathrooms.
Located amidst tree-lined streets of the King West neighbourhood, residents who choose to call 775 King West & 78 Tecumseth truly get to experience the best of both worlds. We say both worlds because just next door is the Fashion District, as well as Queen West, where things get a lot livelier — and stay that way late into the night.
Residents of Minto 775 even have plenty of green space to explore surrounding their homes. Garrison Common and Coronation Park are both nearby, while Stanley Park, Alexandra Park, and Trinity Bellwoods Park, are all within walking distance as well.
Shopping isn’t a concern for residents either, thanks to the enormous Loblaws located at the corner of Queen and Portland. As for home furnishings, clothing, and otherwise, Queen West is the place to go for everything from recognizable brands like Gap and Lululemon to independent, one-off boutiques.
Living right on King Street West is ideal, especially when it comes time to travel to and from the home. Even without a car residents can move about the city with ease thanks to the streetcars that make stops at King and Tecumseth. From there, passengers have the option of riding toward the Yonge-University-Spadina line, where they can transfer onto north and south moving subway trains.
Drivers (whether making use of the car share or electric charging stations or not) can use King or Bathurst to travel within downtown Toronto, as well as Lake Shore Boulevard or one-way streets like Wellington and Adelaide. Alternatively, longer trips requiring highways will make use of the nearby Gardiner Expressway, which offers connections to the 427 and the Don Valley Parkway.
