Broccolini breaks ground at River & Fifth Condos in Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood
Montreal-based developer Broccolini has broken ground at River & Fifth Condos, a new condo development at Dundas St. E. & River St. in Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood. Comprising 37-storeys and 560 units in one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts, the project is due for completion in 2023.
Broccolini is a family-owned business in operation for more than 70 years now. “While our name is relatively new in Toronto, in Montreal we have been an active partner in the city’s growth for many decades, with some of the most exciting projects, including the tallest mixed-use tower in the city and new national bank head-office, currently under development,” says Chief Operating Officer Anthony Broccolini.
“Using our family name on our projects means a lot to us and reflects our commitment to excellence in everything we build,” he adds. “We’re unique in that commitment as we wear the two hats of this industry – both the construction side and developer side. It is this track record that we bring to Toronto. River & Fifth is a really special project because it marks our first residential tower property in Toronto, and we feel really grateful it can be in a neighbourhood with so much promise and connected to greenspace and public parks.”
River & Fifth is located in downtown east, an area already undergoing significant development of greenspace, parks and other public spaces, given its proximity to the Don River.
“It’s a great opportunity to do city-building in a way that we can be proud of and create value for the city and for residents,” says Broccolini.
River & Fifth is designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects Inc., with design from U31 Design and sales by the Milborne Group.
