Construction imminent on long-planned 1,117-unit condo in Liberty Village

Sales quotas have been reached and the vacant plot is being prepared for construction of the King West condominiums, the Plazacorp development that, with its 1,117 units, will be adding a whole new village to Liberty Village.

With construction set to begin this summer, and to be completed sometime in 2013, the large, three-tower, single-podium building will not only be adding between 2,000 and 2,500 people to the neighbourhood.

"The way it's designed, with the towers and a podium, the residents are getting a half acre of rooftop garden," says Nestor Repetski, spokesman for the project.

King West was sold and is being built in three phases, and will be spread out between 65 and 85 East Liberty Street. Designed by Quadrangle Architects, who are also responsible for the Village's Toy Factory Lofts.

The three towers will be 25 storeys each.

The project has been a long time coming, having been first proposed in 2004, 9 years before it's current scheduled completion.
