LeftBank by Broccolini

Welcome to LeftBank – one of Toronto’s most buzzworthy developments in the emerging River District

Latest News


Welcome to LeftBank – one of Toronto’s most buzzworthy developments in the emerging River District

If location is (still) everything, then Toronto’s Downtown East is a pocket unlike anywhere else in the city. Surrounded by stunning greenspaces and an award-winning trail system, the River District offers new one-of-a-kind cafes and restaurants and a transit connection that makes the downtown and other key destinations across the GTA easily accessible.

This prime blend of neighbourhood characteristics is the inspiration behind LeftBank, the newest development by Broccolini, the company’s second project in Downtown East. The River District – named for the stunning topography and naturalized spaces in the area – is undergoing an incredible revitalization, marking a thrilling new chapter and identity for the neighbourhood.

“When you step into the Downtown East, there’s a really tangible energy that we were captivated by immediately,” says Anthony Broccolini, COO, Broccolini. “It was this incredible spirit and transformation that we aimed to capture through LeftBank – from the building’s presence in the east end skyline, to our investment into smart technologies and amenities that make sense for life today. This is the place and time to be in this part of Toronto.”

LeftBank is located off of River Street, directly above the Don River, and will stand at 34-storeys once complete. The third project in a collaborative trilogy with the renowned architects at IBI Group, LeftBank doesn’t shy away from using bold form, colour palettes or materials, resulting in a strong, sleek and confident design that needs no introduction. The black and white exterior features an iconic sail-like mast with a tapered architectural element that intersects with the building, sure to be a staple in Toronto’s east end skyline for decades to come.

There’s an abundant green ribbon already wrapping the River District, and LeftBank is incorporated into and enhances this existing system, recognizing the importance of greenspaces for the human spirit. A new linear park on the south side of LeftBank extends the area’s park series and connects to the Don River and the nearby ravine network of walking trails, where you can head up to Evergreen Brick Works, beloved for its sustainability programming and farmers’ market.

Retail spaces will be included at grade for new boutique shops or cafes, and widened sidewalks with newly planted trees will make for an enjoyable pedestrian experience. As the area continues to transform, the upcoming East Harbour transit hub will increase the connectivity in the already easily accessible neighbourhood and will create upwards of 70,000 jobs alongside new entertainment, dining and cultural options.

While LeftBank’s location is unmatched anywhere else in the city, the interiors by Patton Design rise to the challenge of embodying the essence of the River District. Drawing inspiration from mid-century, quirky design out of Milan and the industrial, raw qualities from the neighbourhood’s history, interiors feature sleek metals in contrast with softer muted pink and orange pastels. Walking into the lobby, residents will be immediately taken by the monolithic feel, high ceilings, bronze and charcoal clad columns, warm lighting and oversized porcelain tiles. The reception desk uses stone with lavender veining for an unexpected pop of colour. Across from the desk, three built-in banquettes offer individual seating with a pod-like effect.

“We wanted to do something different in our design for LeftBank and lean into some of the raw qualities of the neighbourhood along with the tech-savvy nature of the building,” says Sean Swayze of Patton Design. “It’s bold and it’s sleek and it’s also unexpected. These qualities combine for a really spectacular final look and feel as soon as you walk into the lobby and arrive home.”

There’s something for everyone at LeftBank, with suites offered in studio, one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two- and three-bedroom layouts, making this an ideal home for families, young couples, singles and downsizers alike. The suites extend the lobby’s language of design, featuring colour-blocking in the kitchen with wood tones, and a geometric ceramic backsplash continuing the retro-Italian inspired vibe. Urban bathrooms continue the use of wood tones and include oversized porcelain tiles with a custom vanity wall for sleek impact.

LeftBank marks Broccolini’s investment into the Downtown East and into smart technologies. Using the Home by Broccolini system via a suite wall pad or smart phone app, residents can access a series of features designed to simplify everyday living. Select features include granting guests’ entry, enabling alarms, accessing private amenity spaces and receiving parcel notifications. Home by Broccolini also offers a digital door lock, a leak detector, and upgrade features such as lighting and blind control. The entire building (suites, common and amenity areas) will be outfitted with high-speed internet.

The world has been a tumultuous place lately, and there’s no place like home – so LeftBank’s amenity program is extremely forward-thinking, giving residents everything they need. Seeking time and space for reprieve? The terrace with waterfront views is an option, or there’s the yoga studio with juice bar, meditation room and Zen garden to help silence the mind. Online shopping getting you through a rough week? The parcel locker room means your package will arrive safely and securely and will be stored carefully, keeping your items in pristine condition.

Starting or maintaining a health journey? Step into the fully-equipped fitness studio and exceed your personal goals. Working at home and finding it tough? There’s a co-working lounge so you can maintain boundaries in the workplace, and a kids’ zone where your children can play and make new friends. Finally tackling the to-do list? Head on down to the tool annex, where you can make all your DIY dreams come true… or just fine-tune your bicycle. Hosting or just looking for some leisure time? Enjoy the private theatre, gaming lounge or speakeasy. Let’s not forget the dog spa, where all of the doggies are welcome to enjoy some pooch pampering.

At a glance, LeftBank has it all. Location, architecture and design, smart tech convenience and expertly planned amenities create a multifaceted property that has something for everyone. Beyond these superb features, the family-owned developer’s legacy and track-record of success speak for themselves.

“We put our name on everything we build, and that means a lot to us. When you buy in a Broccolini building, you can rest assured in the quality of the product from start to finish,” says Anthony Broccolini.

A new urban centre is forming in the 905, in one of the fastest growing cities in Canada, and what is already the largest employment centre in York Region. It’s dynamic, lively, and completely changing the face of Vaughan. Right at the heart of it, you will find Festival, the latest project by Menkes Developments and QuadReal Property Group.

Situated in downtown Vaughan’s new South VMC, Festival will feature four condominium towers varying in height from 40 to 59 storeys, two of which will be the tallest in VMC. The four-tower community will encompass more than 85,000 sq. ft. of retail onsite – a spectacular array of dining, shopping, entertainment, and lifestyle offerings, making this highly-coveted community a place where residents of all ages will get the best of urban living.

“We’re so pleased to launch Festival, our second development in VMC, and build on the success we had with our first site, Mobilio,” says Jared Menkes, executive vice-president, High Rise. “With both projects, we’re catering to every type of family and lifestyle.

Forest Hill Private Residences

Altree Developments brings an elegant boutique condominium to the Forest Hill neighbourhood

Latest News


Altree Developments brings an elegant boutique condominium to the Forest Hill neighbourhood

A timeless place for one to call home is the vision for Altree Developments‘ latest project, Forest Hill Private Residences, located at 2 Forest Hill Rd. The building will be comprised of a nine-storey, bespoke luxury midrise building with approximately 90 residences. Consisting of a combination of townhomes and condominiums, suites will span from approximately 950 to 4,000 sq. ft., with prices ranging from $1.8 million to more than $6 million.

Located north of downtown Toronto, the former village of Forest Hill has been a noteworthy district as one of the city’s most sought-after neighbourhoods since the 1960s. With a long lineage of multi-generational expertise, Forest Hill Private Residences reflects Altree Developments’ commitment to bringing landmark projects to market and building upon preexisting and iconic communities. The firm has worked with the industry’s best designers and architects to create a building with timeless designs containing floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive outdoor space, and 10-ft. ceilings to add to this prestigious location.

“Our mission at Altree is to seamlessly integrate projects into the pre-existing culture and spirit of the neighbourhood in which we develop,” says Zev Mandelbaum, president and chief executive officer. “Those within the Forest Hill community have called this area home for many years, and we view this as an opportunity to transform this notable address into something that truly embodies seamless luxury and elegant design.”

Forest Hill Private Residences will provide homeowners with incredible views of the neighbourhood overlooking the thriving strip of St. Clair Avenue West and lush green hues of Forest Hill Road. Home to local conveniences and quaint shops adored by many within Toronto, this building will allow residents to experience the incomparable feeling of coming home.

“Forest Hill Private Residences is going to be an incredibly unique building with a tailored experience to each resident,” says Mandelbaum. “Most suites from the third to ninth floors will have expansive terraces with tremendous outdoor exposure, an aspect that is missing from many buildings in the city.”

With the utmost attention to detail and focus on privacy, individuals of this upcoming project will have the joy of living in this distinguished neighbourhood, but with the downtown access and convenience of a central location. Residents will have an array of sophisticated concierge and amenity services, such as an impressive hosting room, full service gym with personal trainers, yoga and pilates instructors, as well as nutritionists and massage therapists.

“We wanted to create a building that had the best-in-class services that this buyer is accustomed to, with an element of privacy and in an environment they felt like they could call home,” says Mandelbaum. “With the notable reputation of this area and the timeless design and offerings this building will contain, Forest Hill Private Residences will be a location that residents will call home for years to come.”

Within steps from St. Clair Avenue West, residents will have access to some of the area’s most renowned and beloved restaurants, local shops and boutiques. As a desired destination to walk the beautiful tree-lined streets, future homeowners of this condominium will be able to enjoy the attributes of this neighbourhood. Residents will also be within proximity to the city’s most well-known schools, such as Upper Canada College, providing an ideal area to raise a family.

“It was very important for Altree to focus on providing top-of-the-line finishes, amenities and services for residents of Forest Hill Private Residences, as well as design and architecture that conveyed the feeling of home,” says Mandelbaum.

Adi Developments is reimagining the urban landscape

When brothers Tariq and Saud Adi started Adi Development Group in 2007, they knew they wanted to approach the development business differently than the rest by bringing world-class architecture to suburban communities that hadn’t seen it before.

“I think what has set us apart from other developers is the fact that we went into the industry knowing we wanted to shake it up, to be changemakers and to have a different approach,” says Tariq Adi, the company’s co-founder and CEO. “We bring a vibrancy to communities you don’t see elsewhere. You know an Adi building when you see one.”

Adi Development Group, most well-known for its numerous residential developments in Halton Region, was just named one of Canada’s 10 fastest growing companies by the Globe and Mail. Today, Adi is behind 12 different projects across the Greater Toronto Area – each at different stages of the development process, representing more than 3,800 residential units. These range from stylish townhomes with modern facades situated in master-planned communities, to elegant highrise buildings with imaginative amenity spaces.

Being disruptors in the real estate industry is central to the way that Adi does business. From the beginning, the brothers have set out to build unique and memorable communities that stand out amongst the rest, with thoughtful details included at attainable price points. By challenging the status quo, Adi has made innovative, design-forward thinking standard in each of its projects. “When you look around at new developments, you see a lot of the same; it’s becoming predictable. When we started Adi, we knew we wanted to deliver something that was the opposite of predictable. Something that was cool, visionary, and interesting – to create the kind of communities that we could envision living in ourselves.”

Adi plans to bring its signature approach to other markets. The company’s first expansion will take shape in 2020, when it launches its inaugural projects in Toronto. The first of these will be 135 Portland Street – a desirable address near shopping, entertainment, and transit. “What we’re doing along Portland is an extraordinary fusion of heritage and a modern vision for Toronto.

The team at Adi has put a lot of work into reimagining this location into a vibrant community that fits seamlessly into the King West neighbourhood,” explains Saud Adi, the co-founder and COO of Adi Developments. “It’s a great introduction to the energy we will bring to our other developments in Toronto.” Following 135 Portland Street, Adi has a second Toronto project in the works, also anticipated to launch in 2020, at 64 Prince Arthur Avenue in the Annex. Together, the brothers make a strong, well-balanced team – with Tariq imagining new ways to transform the urban landscape, and Saud discovering innovative ways to improve the quality and speed of construction on every Adi project.

One thing that unites the pair is their shared vision for the future of real estate and their entrepreneurial spirit, which earned them a spot on Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2019.

Adi has a great selection of suites currently available. Nautique Lakefront Residences offers luxurious condominium suites overlooking the waterfront in downtown Burlington. Pricing starts from the $500,000s for one-bedroom and $700,000s for two-bedrooms. Luxurious and penthouse suites available. Grand opening continues at Stationwest, with a limited collection of Terrace Townhomes, each boasting two storeys of living space, a private rooftop terrace, and a two-car garage. Pricing starts from the mid $600,000s, located steps from the Aldershot GO station. Watch for the new release of Townhomes at Valera, coming in late 2019. Valera is a masterplanned community in Alton Village.

Fleur is a beacon of fashion, art and culture

Toronto’s downtown core is vibrant, diverse and lively, appealing to a variety of people and lifestyles. With the downtown population expected to double to more than 500,000 over the next 25 years, the city is poised to continue its upward trajectory as a destination for investment.

One area in particular that’s attracting both retailers and developers alike is the City’s Garden District, located just east of Yonge, from College to Queen Street. The area has really “blossomed” over the last few years, and at the heart of it you’ll find Menkes‘ Fleur Residences.

With a Walk Score of 99 and a perfect Transit Score of 100, Fleur offers residents seamless access to the city’s premier dining, shopping and cultural destinations. In a city where traffic congestion is a growing frustration, everyone wants the luxury of living close to public transit, and Fleur is set between two major subway station stations, Queen and Dundas. In fact, the building neighbours the lively Dundas Square, a magnet for musical acts, cultural events and entertainment.

Set at the epicentre of retail and style, Fleur is every shopaholic’s dream come true. The building is located just steps away from North America’s most popular mall, CF Toronto Eaton Centre, home to world-renowned retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. The popular tourist destination underwent a massive revitalization, and over the last several years, introduced a number of new high-end international retailers to its eclectic mix. There has been an influx of foreign retailers to the area, further confirmation of the neighbourhood’s international appeal. The east side of Yonge Street is cast with a remarkable range of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes.

The sleek 32-storey tower puts you within a five-minute walk to the Elgin & Winter Garden Theatres, stacked, magnificently restored treasures, and a four-minute walk to the historic Massey Hall. Toronto consistently ranks among the top three cities in the world for live theatre.

Living at Fleur will also be a foodie’s paradise, close to some of the best cuisine the city has to offer, such as popular dining spots like Canoe, Cactus Club and Hy’s Steakhouse, all within 10 minutes of the building. Also, a short 10-minute stroll south, is Toronto’s world-famous St. Lawrence Market, where you will find an overwhelming array of fresh produce, meats, seafood, and delicacies offered by countless vendors, bakers, and artisans.

To add to the long list of things to see and do in this interesting and diverse neighbourhood, Nathan Phillips Square, at the foot of Toronto’s iconic City Hall, is also minutes away. The Square is home to some of Toronto’s best farmers markets, concerts, art exhibits, holiday celebrations, and more. In winter, the reflecting pool transforms into a public skating rink.

Close to the action on Yonge Street, yet quietly sheltered, Fleur’s tower ascends from a unique three-storey glass and stone podium. Designed by the talented local firm architectsAlliance, a subtle garden theme welcomes residents as they approach the striking tower, which much like its community, stands as a symbol of fashion and art. Inspired by the surrounding Garden District, the architects designed a stone element in the tower’s base along Church Street to imitate the monolithic stone of the neighbourhood’s nearby cathedrals.

Urban Torontonians with busy lifestyles desire a home where they can relax and unwind, but also enjoy the best the city has to offer. Fleur is unique in that it’s at the centre of the excitement of the downtown core, yet nestled in the Garden District, which also retains a more peaceful vibe.

For anyone looking for all the conveniences of downtown living wrapped into one phenomenal location, Fleur Residences is your ideal home. For more information visit the Menkes Store, located at 110 Harbour St, Unit 106, call 416.591.7700 or visit the website.
