Testament to the TAS vision, TAS proposed Zed at a time when the King West neighbourhood still reflected its industrial heritage. With a specific focus on the unique characteristics of this urban-fringe neighbourhood, the success of this multi-unit residential building hinged upon its unified approach and consistency of components. The architectural design of Zed has since been regarded as one of the most influential in the downtown core — a touchstone in contemporary condominium design. Offerings to home buyers were well beyond the standards of the time. Clean, undeniably modern, inside and out, TAS' Zed is a building of human scale and material delights.
Airy, light-infused interiors, immaculately conceptualized by TAS. Illuminated by great design. Every room designed and fitted to be the best...and perform impeccably.
From custom cabinetry to the bespoke-style details that define each room, TAS' interpretation of form and functions is the basis of the homes at Zed.
