Lamb Development Corp. (LDC) was founded in 2001 by Toronto’s top condominium broker Brad J. Lamb to directly participate in the development of stylish, urban condominium projects. At that time, with over 13 years of experience in consulting, marketing, and the selling of more than 100 of Toronto’s most innovative and exciting projects, Mr. Lamb wanted to bring something different to the development world. Since then, he has done just that; developing over 17 completed projects, along with 4 projects under construction. An additional 8 projects incorporating 2,600 units are in development. Lamb Development Corp. has become one of the country’s busiest development companies, with each project pioneering up-and-coming locations and delivering a stylish, urban solution to each property. Completed projects in Toronto are some of the hippest, most contemporary buildings in the city. They include gläs, Parc, Worklofts, Flatiron Lofts, The King East, Theatre Park, King Charlotte and The Brant Park.
Parc, an architectural gem located on a quiet inner city park, called Stanley Park. Stanley Park anchors the outdoor social scene of the King West – Niagara neighbourhood and is one of the best kept secrets in the city. The entrance to the building opens to the green grass of the adjacent park, something that is truly rare in any North American city. If you live at Parc, you will be one of only 103 lucky residents.
Worklofts and Flatiron Lofts were the city’s first residential loft style development to include some true work - studio commercial condominium units in the development. Both Flatiron Lofts and Worklofts are located in Toronto’s newly blossoming East-end. Both developments are delivering over 35,000 Sq Ft of prime retail and commercial space that have helped kick- start the commercialization of Carlaw Avenue. An important aspect of Lamb Development Corp’s business plan is to help stimulate fallow urban areas. With over 260 units built, Worklofts and Flatiron Lofts are helping to rejuvenate Queen Street east of the DVP and redefine an area in transition.
The King East at King Street East and Parliament is a 215 unit high-rise anchoring the last original intersection of the old town of York (Toronto). Like all Lamb Development Corp. projects, it is architecturally spectacular and provides a modern and unique marker to the end of the old city. The building offers an innovative 2-level mezzanine style retail space of 14,000 Sq Ft that is a hit on Toronto’s Furniture Row.
Completed in the Summer of 2015, Theatre Park is Lamb’s 47-storey iconic tower sprouting from the historic Theatre District of Toronto's King Street West. The development features a 5200 Sq Ft floor plate and once in a lifetime panoramic views. The entrance is anchored by a forecourt park complete with water feature and sculptural art. This community space has become the "go to" meeting place for the symphony and theatre patrons as well as an urban respite from the pace of city life.
King Charlotte was completed in the Fall of 2015 near King and Spadina. King Charlotte is a modern 33-storey tower that houses 232 units. A series of stacked sculptural floating boxes define King Charlotte’s design. Just as a puzzle intricately pieces together in a way you may not first imagine, the building’s cube-like spaces of varying shapes and sizes interconnect in a seamless fashion. Asymmetry meet illusion at every angle! On the 33rd floor, an expansive entertainment oasis includes an outdoor pool with all-day sun. No doubt, King Charlotte’s crowning glory.
The Brant Park in Toronto’s booming Restaurant District was completed in the Fall of 2015. Living here, you don’t have to go far to appreciate every convenience imaginable; from trend-setting restaurants, fashionable nightclubs, world class live entertainment and hi-profile venues. The Brant Park offers a strong nod to the 60’s modernist architectural movement. The organized simplicity of the building provides a new bold style to the King Street West neighbourhood – an eclectic mix of old and new. Conveniently, just to the west of the building is St.Andrew’s Park, a green oasis filled with lovely and mature tree in the heart of downtown.
Gotham, Lamb’s brand new flagship in Ottawa completed in the Spring of 2015! Gotham is a modern statuesque residence rising 17- stories high into Ottawa’s skyline and lives up to it’s iconic name by combining large sheets of glass, solid steel and bold charcoal brick. The building is one of the most breathtaking modern residences in Ontario.
SoBa, Lamb’s second development in Ottawa is currently under construction. Once completed, the dramatic building will rise 23 storeys over the street, with four stacked, oscillating sections that slide across one another creating a striking modern aesthetic.
6th and Tenth is a 31-story development in Calgary and broke ground in the Fall of 2014. This will be Lamb’s first project in the city of Calgary. Lamb is excited to reveal the “Land Of Horses” art piece sculpted by the renowned Francisco Gazitua Costabal.
The Harlowe at Bathurst and Richmond broke ground in the Spring of 2016. The Harlowe will house 220 units and represents something truly rare in housing today; timeless beauty with a sense of crafted quality.
By collaborating with two of Toronto’s best modernist architectural firms, Core Architects and architects Alliance (aA), Lamb Development Corp. is providing architectural statements that will stand the test of time. Brad J. Lamb has long associated all of his developments, and those of his clients, with the most current and relevant interior designers available. The Lamb Standard is the company philosophy of providing what would be expensive upgrades elsewhere as standard finishes at all LDC developments has been nothing short of revolutionary. Lamb Development Corp’s goal is to bring excellent condominium design with spectacular clean modern architecture allowing both the building residents and the residents of the city to mutually benefit from an invigorating and thoughtful experience.
Lamb Development Corp. has 8 projects in development or on the drawing board. East Fifty Five is located in the heart of Toronto’s Lower East Side and adheres to Lamb Development Corporation’s strict policy of beauty and excellence in architecture and design. It opened to one of the most successful launches in the city and was over 55% sold within the first week. The development was recently fully approved and will begin construction in 2017.
Tall, dark and lean – James is Lamb Development Corp’s most recently launched development in Toronto being proposed at Richmond and Spadina. This tall thin tower of 18 storeys represents the best of modern architecture and design.
Wellington House is set to launch in the Spring of 2017. It is perfectly situated on Wellington St just steps from the bustling King St West strip. Wellington House will be a spectacular fusion of cool, modern design with historic, turn of the century beauty.
The Orchard is a planned two-phase development in Calgary which will incorporate the innovative idea of a live and working 1 acre apple orchard between the two phases of the development. An amenity such as this has never been proposed anywhere!
North, and Jasper House are both in the development phase and located in Edmonton.
In recent news, Lamb Development Corp acquired the old CHCH Television site in Hamilton. Just shy of one acre downtown. The proposed development will be called Television City. More details to follow.
These 8 projects represent an additional 2,600 units. Out of country developments include the 500 acre resort at El Cabo Rojo on the south-west coast of the Dominican Republic and the Zen Villas in Roatan, Honduras. All projects are guaranteed to break the mould and excite the soul.
