MONTREAL — Broccolini, a Montreal-based mixed-use developer and the developer behind Montreal’s two tallest residential towers, is launching its first residential highrise project in Toronto.
River & Fifth by Broccolini, which will be located at the east end of Toronto, is a 37 storey building which will rise above the Don Valley and the city’s core.
According to a release issued by Broccolini, it boasts an eye-catching facade with stacked framing on east and west elevations which amplifies the visibility of the residences from a distance and enhances the lightness of the building. An 11-storey podium at the base creates a mid-rise neighbourhood feel, with a series of townhomes.
Future plans include a new parkland on the south side of the development and a pedestrian connection to Bayview Avenue that leads to Corktown Commons.
The development also includes 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space, a kids’ game room and lounge, expansive fitness area with a ballet bar and boxing gym, and cutting edge co-working spaces.
A 12th floor rooftop amenity space provides an ultimate “urban retreat” including a Baja pool that overlooks the city, and a new dedicated parkland to the south, adds the release.
Design firm U31 is working on the project and interiors reflect nature and the city, with lobby and amenity spaces incorporating greenery with feature lighting, marble veining, natural oak finishes and sculptural wood seating.
“It’s as if Toronto kept the east end of downtown a secret for years, but word is finally out,” said Michael Broccolini, VP business development and finance for Broccolini, in a statement. “The neighbourhood provides an ideal combination of city and nature, with the Don Valley Trail, Corktown Commons and Riverdale Park all within five minutes from each other, where you can escape the hustle and bustle. It’s a part of the city that aligns with so many of our own community values.”
