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 12 completed projects (2,000 units), along with four projects under construction (1,050 units). An additional eight projects incorporating 2,000 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, and The King East.
Newly completed Worklofts and Flatiron Lofts are the city’s first residential loft style development to include some true work- studio commercial condominiums in the development. Both Flatiron Lofts and Worklofts are located in Toronto’s newly blossoming East-end. Both developments are delivering over 35,000SF of prime retail and commercial space that will help 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 being built, Worklofts and Flatiron Lofts are helping to rejuvenate Queen Street, east of the DVP and redefine an area in transition.
A 103 unit project, Parc, is 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. Parc’s front door opens to the green grass of the park, something that is truly rare in any North American city.
The King East at King Street East and Parliament is also now completed. This 215 unit high-rise anchors the last original intersection of the old town of York (Toronto). Like all Lamb Development Corp. developments, 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 14,000SF that is already a hit on Toronto’s Furniture Row. Lamb’s $130 Million grand 47-storey iconic tower Theatre Park, along with the forecourt art park is scheduled for completion September 2014 in Toronto’s Theatre District.
Lamb’s spectacular Gotham Ottawa is quickly taking shape with move-in expected in late Summer 2014. King Charlotte, at King and Spadina, is a modern 33-storey tower which will also be completed by Fall 2014. The Brant Park in Toronto’s booming Restaurant District is expected to be completed by July 2015.
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. A 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 eight projects in development or on the drawing board. The Harlowe is located at Bathurst and Richmond St. W. in Toronto. SoBa, and Bronson are new developments in Centretown Ottawa. The Orchard is a planned two-phase development in Calgary. 6th and Tenth is a 31-story development in Calgary and to break ground Spring 2014. North, and Jasper House are both in the development phase and located in Edmonton. These eight projects represent an additional 1,500 units. Out of country developments include the five-hundred 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.
