Sitting at the heart of Downtown Hamilton on King Street East, this Effort Trust building is all around captivating. This 50,000 SFT building stands 6 stories tall and includes a penthouse suite and two levels of underground parking. It has a heavy steel structure, cast-in-place flooring, and an exterior made up of aluminum composite panel, glazing and granite veneer. With structural interior glazing and elegant millwork finishes, this building also boasts modern walnut paneling, executive furniture, as well as the use of granite tops and wall treatments throughout the reception and washrooms. Despite certain challenges of limited laydown on surrounding streets, countless changes, shoring and support of existing neighboring properties, Effort Trust has become a showpiece for Hamilton’s downtown core.
