Project History

Initially, this pencil-thin 51-story condominium/apartment-hotel project in Toronto’s downtown financial district at 5 King Street it was considered structurally impossible to build, and Stinson’s proposed pricing ($500 + per square foot) regarded – by ‘experts’ – as unattainable in Toronto in the year 2000. Nevertheless, with the addition of 1 King West – the former head office of the Toronto Dominion Bank, Stinson built the building and sold the suites. One King West is now regarded as one of the most impressive new structures on the Toronto skyline (including statements to this effect by former Mayor David Miller and a publicly-voted award as the most admired residential building in Toronto.) The project led to a whole new market for premium residential properties in the downtown core and was in fact cited as the ‘proof precedent’ by the sponsors of the Trump International Tower. Although independent (without a major brand name flag), “The Suites at 1 King West” rapidly became one of the most popular hotels in the city. 1 King West includes the palatial Dominion Club, private business and social club, which subsequently merged with the 96-year old Ontario Club. Stinson personally set up the hotel operations ‘from scratch’, and directly operated the hotel for two years.
