Allied Properties REIT and RioCan REIT in joint venture, are working with Hariri Pontarini Architects on the King Portland Centre, formerly known as 620 King Street West, a 13-storey office building attached to the 15-storey rental residential development in the heart of the densifying King West District. Respecting the material form of the neighbourhood, the development will seamlessly integrate with the existing Victorian commercial building to the east and three renovated row houses, as well as the existing interior lanes and courtyards. In addition, green terraces will be created as an amenity for the office workers, and three levels of underground parking will accommodate the needs of the new space being added to the block. The guiding principle is long-term sustainability, with a target of achieving minimum of LEED Platinum.

This new, urban-infill development spans north-south from King Street to Adelaide Street, occupying an irregular-shaped site and creating a village-like neighbourhood completed with an interconnected network of lanes.

Light-filled, brick-paved laneways are lined with shops and cafés, directly connecting to Adelaide, King, and Portland Streets. Stepping back from the street, the base podium will feature large bricked arches to frame the ground floor retail and help connect the existing buildings with the new. Pedestrian access will be encouraged between the spaces.
