36-storey glass tower to add 6,000 square feet of retail to King West

Underground construction has begun at the site of the latest condo towers to go up in in the increasingly intense King and Spadina area.

Charlie, designed by Diamond + Schmitt, built by Great Gulf with interiors by Cecconi Simone and landscaping by Janet Rosenberg and Associates, will be a 36-storey, 300-unit tower on an 8-storey podium.

All glass, the building will also include 6,000 square feet of retail along King Street, livening up a strip that used to be dominated by the parking lot this condo, replaces. The entrance to the residential portion of the building will be off Charlotte Street.

"It's a highly sought-after residential area that's changed immeasurably since Barbara Hall took the industrial use restrictions off in the mid-1990s." says Great Gulf's director of market and acquisitions Geoff Matthews.
