The residential building consists of a 17 level tower on the northeast section of the property and a 12 level west tower connected to the east tower. Among the services located in this tower are retail facilities, three levels of below grade parking, and a residential amenity and fitness facility. Minto King West has achieved LEED Gold Certification and Toronto Green Standard Tier 2 requirements.
Vertical stacked fan coils with integral heat recovery are provided for each suite to reduce energy usage. Condensing boilers, condensing domestic hot water heaters and variable speed pumping are also included in the design to maximize energy efficiency.
Each of the 340 suites are individually metered for electrical and water usage to help reduce condominium fees. Each suite features Minto's concept of the "all-off" switch for energy savings while unoccupied.
