140 King Tower
140 King has been designed to work on two very distinct levels; at streetscape pedestrian scale, the finely detailed facade has connections through the block, and on a citywide level, clean large gestures are legible from distant vantage points.
The nature of the scalable facade pattern allows these two very different scales to seamlessly coexist and work with each other from ground floor to roof.
The proportions of the site along with setbacks from adjoining developments create an elegant and slender building footprint, resulting in shallow apartments plans and affording excellent daylight and access to CBD views. The podium form blends with the tower to achieve a unified formal response.
There is a variety of residential accommodation that has been designed into the development, including 1 bed apartments and a large number of 2 bed apartments. The apartment types, their good internal amenity and access to excellent views will have a broad appeal to investors and owner occupiers alike. The retail area along King Street creates an active frontage with views into and out from a large well lit lobby space. A through block link will encourage access through to Gallagher Place and the Right Of Way, which is home to a number of cafes and commercial tenancies off semi-public access ways. A small hole-in-the-wall coffee shop off the rear pedestrian entry will add to the vibrancy of this interface.
