540 King is located in the heart of the King West neighbourhood at the north-west corner of Brant Street and King Street West and stretching north to Morrison Street.
The project is a 15-storey mixed-use building comprised of office, retail and residential components. The office and retail components will be concentrated on the Brant St and King St W frontages, while the residential component will be concentrated on the Morrison St frontages in the north part of the property.
The existing building façade located at 544 King Street West will be retained and relocated. Among the most obvious exterior changes introduced since the last version is a complete redesign of the building’s podium, now taking a similar form as the rounded brick-clad base of the recently-completed King-Portland Centre complex a short distance to the west on King Street.
