Montreal-based developer, Broccolini, is launching a new project called LeftBank this month. LeftBank features a 34-storey condo on the west bank of the Don River. The new condominium concept aligns with the new vision for Toronto’s River District, which is to combine nature with city living.
LeftBank’s architecture will be reminiscent of a ship’s mast to pay homage to the Don River’s history and includes 388 residential condominium units. The new building is meant to blend into the natural habitat surrounding the River District while allowing residents to enjoy the comforts of city living with the benefits of outdoor activity.
“While you are minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown’s financial district, there is this serene natural beauty and calmness you get from being adjacent to the surrounding ravine, trails, and water. We are fortunate to have two projects that back on the Don, giving us the opportunity to create a complete community in one neighbourhood block, and make a strong visual impact to the east end skyline,” says Phil Brennan, VP of real estate for Broccolini, in a recent press release.
This will be Broccolini’s second development in the GTA. The group broke ground on a similar project, River & Fifth, in 2019. Each unit is meant to reflect “retro Italian” decor and comes with various material and design options. A newly constructed pedestrian walkway links the River District with Bayview Avenue connecting future LeftBank residents with the Don Valley River Trail (leading to Corktown Common, Evergreen Brick Works, and Riverdale Park East and West and further north).
