The Harlowe Condos is a new 14-storey development by Lamb Development Corp., coming soon to the Bathurst and Richmond Street neighbourhood. There will be 220 units from $259,900, ranging in size from 489 to 1,535 square feet. The developer feels confident in the warehouse-style design project pegging it as "one of Toronto's most beautiful midrise developments."
"This time out I didn't want to do an all glass contemporary structure, instead I envisioned a more historic themed building that could have been comfortable here 100 years ago, albeit with a contemporary edge, making it appropriate for 2014 and beyond. For inspiration I looked to the Meat Packing District of Manhattan where a good number of older buildings are left to tell the historic record." Said Brad J. Lamb, President and CEO of Brad J. Lamb Realty Inc. in a press release. There are several new developments coming soon to the area. Although it's off to a slow start, the nearby Origami Lofts is a seven-storey building, currently waiting for permit approval. On Richmond, the Studio Condos are seriously electrifying and the Picasso Condos, a thirty-nine storey tower, stands out with its white and red cubed design. The developer also praising this new condo calling the Picasso "the most artistic building, the most beautiful-looking building downtown." The new Harlowe development (which is not named after socialite Nicole Richie's kid) will soon knock down several of the detached houses on the street to make way for the building. Construction is expected to begin next year.
