TORONTO, CANADA: Global construction company Multiplex has signed the contract to deliver Hullmark Asset Management Ltd. and First Capital REIT’s iconic ‘flatiron’ project, 1071 King West.

Multiplex brings its mixed-use residential expertise to the joint venture’s 14-storey gateway project, and to the Liberty Village community for a second time after completing First Capital REIT’s nearby King’s Club project in 2019.

“We are thrilled to be working with Hullmark and to be back building in Liberty Village for First Capital REIT,” said Jason Poole, Multiplex Project Director for 1071 King West.

“This project is unique in every way and the Multiplex team look forward to delivering our client’s placemaking vision.”

1071 King West is a mixed-use residential development featuring 227 rental units, retail at grade and two levels of underground parking, spanning a total of 255,062 square feet.

Early works are scheduled to start in December 2021.
