One King West has a fascinating and varied history. Originally opening as a Michie & Co. Grocers & Wine Merchants, the venue was built in the mid-1800s. In 1879, Yonge and King became home to the head office of The Dominion Bank, a residency that would last an impressive 126 years. With the merger with the Bank of Toronto in 1955, the location became head office for the Toronto-Dominion Bank through the 1990’s. Ownership once again changed hands in 1999 to Stanford Downey Architects, who carefully redesigned the Dominion Bank Building, now deemed a Heritage Building, for residential use. This redesign saw the creation of the second tower adjacent to the building, aptly nicknamed “The Sliver”, due to its dramatically slender profile.

The venue is conveniently located at the intersection of King Street West and Yonge Street. It is right by the metro and is a short walk from Union Station. Limited Valet parking is available for guests at the Melinda Street entrance on a first come, first served basis, and there are self-park options available on Wellington Street. For those with limited mobility, or anyone requiring wheelchair access, a fully accessible entrance is available off of Melinda Street.
