A major component of the bank’s transformation was the construction of the 51 storey condominium tower by Stanford Downey Architects Inc. The tower, nicknamed “The Sliver”, is the tallest residential building in Canada at 578 feet, and boasts the most slender height to width ratio in the world. The Suites at 1 King West was designed in the spirit of 19th century apartment hotels, and as such, features an almost equal percentage of residential condominium units and hotel rooms. Adding to this number is the historic portion, which houses 200 units and a six-storey atrium enclosing 42 private suites.
In 2009, the Suites at 1 King West received a refresh of its own, and is now known more simply as One King West Hotel and Residences, in tribute to this historically significant and prestigious address.
Trisect is renovating 322 suites and corridors from floors 4 through to floor 47. The scope includes new flooring (carpet, vinyl plank and tile), painting and wallpaper, new kitchens in every suite, additional lighting and fixtures, washroom glass shower doors, vanities, plumbing fixtures, and FF&E storage and installation. The work is being conducted with the full operation of the hotel and the occupancy of approximately 200 individual condominium suites scattered throughout the various floors. Access is difficult with a small loading dock and limited elevator access creating logistic challenges with condominium and hotels daily operations.
