Over the last few years, King Street West (I’m talking here about that stretch of King running west from Spadina to Bathurst) has seen plenty of residential growth. Not only in the number of new buildings in the area, but in the value of the real estate as well. Per square foot, this is one of the priciest areas in the city.
Yes, Mr. Freed is responsible for much of the new development here (The Thompson Residences, 66 Portland, 20 Stewart...). But let’s not forget the building that sits at the eastern end of this stretch – the building that in many ways set a benchmark of quality for all that would follow... The Hudson.
If you're not already familiar with the building, it's the condo that sits above the Fresh & Wild Food Market and the west-bound streetcar stop on King at Spadina. If you've passed by, chances are you've snuck a peek and seen the impressive lobby inside (check out the photo below). The interiors were designed by Brian Gluckstein and the all-around high level of quality has helped the building garner an impressive reputation. Many are proud to call The Hudson home.
Just a few weeks ago I helped a client secure a one-bedroom suite in the building. We’re going for his first purchaser’s visit in a few days and needless to say, he’s very excited to get the keys in July and move into his new home (congrats Brian!).
A bit more about the building:
The Hudson was developed by Great Gulf Home (also responsible for The Morgan, The Saint James, and 18 Yorkville, among others), and designed by Diamond & Schmitt Architects. Completed in 2007, the building has 21 floors and sits at the northeast corner of King & Spadina. The municipal address is 438 King Street West.
The building amenities include 24 hr concierge, fitness facility (aka “The Husdon Club”), outdoor terrace/garden (located on the 2nd floor), party/meeting room, billiards room, and visitor parking. I’ve included photos of some of the common elements below.
