Acquired in 1987 when Liberty Village was just a collection of industrial factories and manufacturing operations, WTF Group turned a group of battered warehouses into what we now call the King West Centre.
Located in the centre of one of Toronto’s oldest neighborhoods, the area has seen explosive growth over the past decade. Artfully restored and tastefully retrofitted, the King West Centre is home to some of the city’s most dynamic businesses and creative talents.
Located in Corktown, near the banks of the Don River – which for years served as a link between Lake Ontario and some of Toronto’s thriving mills, factories and plants – the Queen East Centre was originally two separate warehouse buildings, in harmony with neighborhood’s industrial setting.
Linked by a 3 story glass atrium, The Queen East Centre is positioned adjacent to what is now one of the most highly trafficked, exciting mixed-use areas in the city. Attracting a variety of businesses, restaurants and retailers, Corktown and the surrounding West Don Lands will serve as home to the Athletes Village for the upcoming Pan Am Games!
These days, it’s all about convenience…
Toronto based Ritual is a mobile app that ensures VIP treatment at many of your favorite eateries and coffee spots. With Ritual, you can order and pay for your meal from your phone (we said it was convenient!); and in April, WTF Group partnered with Ritual to help launch the “Fast Lane” service in the King West & Fashion Districts. As incentive to join the program, all WTF Group tenants were presented with a $10 credit to use at any one of the local restaurants featured through the app.
Offering a front of the queue experience and preferred service at over 25+ spots in the hood, many of our own tenants are featured on the app – Fusaro’s Kitchen, The Chickery, What A Bagel, Pamier Kabob, Loving Hut and Fresh on Spadina, to name a few. Check out the app for details.
This year marks the 20th anniversary since the acquisition of the Balfour Building by the WTF Group.
Built in 1930, this landmark Art Deco building was originally constructed for the Schiffer-Hillman Clothing Co. Positioned at the corner of Spadina Avenue and Adelaide Street, the Balfour Building marked the gateway to Toronto’s booming garment district.
Since purchasing the Balfour Building, WTF has taken careful steps in our restoration process to protect its historical value. Blending distinctive character with contemporary style, this building now features elegant interiors, light-filled, efficiently designed suites and a stunning rooftop terrace.
Going forward, we vow to maintain only the highest standards of excellence in both the management of this unique property and in service to our tenants.
