On the northeast corner of King and Spadina, The Hudson is a 21-storey condominium building developed by Great Gulf Homes. This area of King West has boomed with condo buildings in recent years but I’ve chosen The Hudson specifically because of its high quality finishes and design.
The interiors, for example, are the work of the renowned design planner, Brian Gluckstein. His previous projects include the Four Seasons Hotel, Bloor Street Neighbourhood, Kilgour Estates and Amica at Bayview. For The Hudson, Gluckstein has created a contemporary jazz-influenced ambience that begins in the New York-style lobby and extends to the suites which are named after jazz legends.
There are 282 units inside the brick and glass tower designed by Diamond and Schmitt Architects (6 time winners of the Governor General’s Award for Architecture). The units vary between 553 and 1273 sq. ft. and feature 9” ceilings. They also have individually controlled heating and cooling, 40-ounce carpeting, granite countertops and balconies.
Amenities at The Hudson are reminiscent of a five star hotel. There’s a billiards room, a media room, a lounge with a bar area and a private dining room with a gourmet servery that overlooks a beautiful landscaped garden. Additionally, Club Hudson is a double-height, fully-equipped fitness centre with change rooms and steam rooms.
Beyond The Hudson’s front doors, at 438 King Street West, lies every imaginable downtown attraction. There’s restaurants, cafes, boutiques, markets and pubs for every taste. Close to popular districts such as the Entertainment, Financial and Fashion Districts, The Hudson is only a short walk away from Roy Thompson Hall, the Air Canada Centre, Harbourfront and more!
