Description of 510 King St E: Absorbed in the heart of historic Corktown, Phase 2 at 510 King Street East takes form. With the historic influences of traditional warehouse design, CDL uses the contemporary elements of today's new urban environment to construct this development. Corktown District Lofts combine two outstanding modern towers designed with sheets of tempered glass and warm gray cladding with the base composed of charcoal clay brick that grounds the look of warehouse structure with punched out balconies with plenty of green hedge planting. The CDL consists of 8 levels, 185 units and the square footage range from less than 600 square feet to more than 1000 square feet.
Corktown District is the first urban neighbourhood of its class to be born here in the heart of downtown Toronto East. The CDL concept involves the extension of three separate sites next to each other forming a private secluded neighbourhood of its own that will share its purpose, look, amenities and management. The boutique style buildings are joined into the streets of the community, becoming part of the foundation rather than separate from it.
