Terracap is a 1.5 Billion private equity group with a 30- year history developing multi-residential properties, retail and office spaces. This exciting partnership locks in a solid vision for this special location. With a very limited amount of real estate along King West, 411 King presents one of the last pre-construction developments, on the best corner, at the most premier destination in downtown Toronto.

With a perfect walk and transit score of 100, King West attracts visitors from across the GTA and around the globe, for its wealth of top-rated cuisine, theatre, culture, shopping, and entertainment. If there was ever an appropriate moment to use the cliché “location, location, location,” this is the time.

Whether using the many transit connections or walking to the wide spectrum of popular venues or hidden King Street gems, area residents are privy to a lifestyle of opportunity, convenience, and unlimited indulgences.

Key arts and cultural landmarks include the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Rogers Centre, and Roy Thompson Hall. This booming neighbourhood is home to some of the city’s most coveted attractions, restaurants, wellness retreats, businesses, spas, trendy cafés, high fashion boutiques, and so much more. It’s no wonder King West is a world-renowned destination that hosts international stars and the “who’s who” of sports, entertainment, and Toronto’s elite. In fact, with the development of 411 King, King Street is finally getting the crown it deserves.

411 King is unparalleled in the exciting opportunity it presents on the most prominent corner of King West. The building itself presents a unique dichotomy of styles by combining the aesthetics of an iconic modern tower with the industrial revolution design sensibility of a heritage brick façade that echoes old-world elegance. In fusing the two, the architecture embodies a mindfulness and respect for the ways in which this building will enter the existing King streetscape. The architecture creates a timeless and stunning exterior that combines modern architectural forms with historic charm.

With a lifestyle of accessibility and abundance, there’s no limit to the range of possibilities to indulge, delight, inspire, and thrive – from day to night.

Neighbourhood Watch: Queen West & King West

Latest News


Neighbourhood Watch: Queen West & King West

Housing Options

The condo boom began in the Entertainment District when abandoned warehouses in the area began to be transformed into lofts, or were demolished to make way for condo towers. With the huge increase in residents, there has been a decrease in the number of night clubs, mostly because of the noise and traffic issues associated with those types of venues.

David Mirvish’s two-storey condo complex at the northeast corner of King and John Streets, designed by Frank Gehry, would see the addition of a huge art gallery space. The 92- storey and 82-storey towers will be developed by Great Gulf, which also has 357 King West Condos under development. As well, Robert De Niro’s Nobu Hotel started sales of their first Nobu Condos in the summer and Empire Developments will develop Maverick Condos, a 47- storey condominium at 323 King St West.

Leisure Pursuits

Do you need to ask? The area is called the Entertainment District. Live theatre rules, with the Princess of Wales Theatre, the Royal Alex, Roy Thomson Hall, the Four Seasons Centre, Theatre Passe Muraille and the Factory Theatre. But cinema is also well represented with the TIFF Bell Lightbox and the large complex of movie screens at the Scotiabank Theatre at Richmond and John Streets and the National Film Board of Canada’s home right across the street. Need a laugh? Try an evening at Second City, Yuk Yuk’s or the Forget About It Supper Club.

If you want to stroll the area, check out the stars of Canada’s Walk of Fame along King between Simcoe and John Streets, and on Simcoe south of King. This year’s inductees were Olympic sprinter Donovan Bailey, civil rights pioneer Viola Desmond, actor Anna Paquin, businessman Ted Rogers, scientist and broadcaster David Suzuki, singer/songwriter Stompin’ Tom Connor, and singer/songwriter and Shawn Hook (Allan Slaight Honour).

Parks & Rec

Clarence Square – located where Wellington Street West meets Spadina Avenue – is one of the oldest remaining parks in the downtown core. Although a small area, it is relatively quiet and shady, with many large trees, a spacious grassy area and a fenced in dog park. The Roundhouse Park is 17 acres and features the John Street Roundhouse, a preserved locomotive roundhouse that is home to the Toronto Railway Museum.

Retail Therapy

Shop until you drop into one of the fabulous restaurants, cafés or bars located throughout the district. Although there aren’t any large indoor malls in the area, stores of all kinds are plentiful and range from modest to bespoke.

Queen Street west of Spadina Avenue has some of the highest density of independent and chain stores. But if you want to stay inside, just wander through Toronto’s PATH to find an outstanding array of retail, or head on over to the Eaton Centre.

Easy Access

Subways, streetcars and all-night buses service the area. Union Station is close by, so GO Transit is readily available, as is easy access to the Gardiner Expressway and DVP.
