Lamb Development Corp. and architectsAlliance have launched The Woodsworth, a 17-storey condominium set to rise in downtown Toronto in 2021. The building, designed by Peter Clewes of architectsAlliance and interiors by Kelly Cray of U31, will be located at 452 Richmond St. West, near Spadina Ave. in the heart of Toronto’s Fashion District.
Designed with young professionals in mind, condominium units will start in the high $400,000s. The building will be almost entirely condominium-style units in junior one bedroom, one bedroom and one bedroom plus den configurations ranging from 406 to 791 square feet. The top floor will be divided into two Sky Penthouse units: a two bedroom condo (1,359 square feet) and a three bedroom condo (1,587 square feet), each featuring a large terrace and spectacular city views.
“It’s hard for young professionals to afford living in the city, close to work,” said Brad Lamb, CEO of Lamb Development Corp., in a press release. “The Woodsworth makes owning a high quality condominium, while simultaneously enjoying downtown living and building a career a reality.”
The condo will be located in Toronto’s trendy Fashion District, which is surrounded by trendy shops, galleries, restaurants and nightlife, and is flanked by Spadina, Queen and Bathurst streetcar routes.
The Woodsworth’s amenities include a modern fitness studio and a 16th floor indoor/outdoor Sky Lounge and a party room. In addition, units were designed using modern European-style kitchen cabinetry, double thick stone kitchen and vanity counters, nine-foot ceilings or higher, loft-style exposed concrete features, spa-quality bathroom finishes, natural gas ranges and gas BBQ nozzles on all balconies.
“Young professionals have a growing appreciation for good design and they want a home that reflects their own sleek and stylish aesthetic,” added Kelly Cray, creative principal at U31. “We’ve designed The Woodsworth with them in mind, providing quality and detail at an attainable price.”
The project is expected to break ground this winter, and is estimated to be complete in September 2021.
