Lamb Development Corp is partnering with Fortress Real Developments to create a new 222-suite condominium project called The Harlowe. Designed by Core Architects to harmonize with the warehouse aesthetic of the area, the 14-storey building would replace several single-detached homes on the north side of Richmond Street West between Bathurst and Portland Streets. The Harlowe's main residential entrance along with approximately 4,900 square feet of retail would animate the Richmond Street frontage.

The Harlowe's first ten storeys will feature semi-staggered red brick columns and black-framed warehouse-style windows, aka 'divided lights' owing to the grid of mullions. The top four floors are set back from Richmond Street, dropping the red brick in favour of all-glass and steel, extending the black mullions to the sky. The setback at the 11th floor results in units with expansive terraces with south views. Most south-facing upper floor units will feature full-length balconies.

About 1,750 square feet of indoor and 400 square feet of outdoor common amenity space will be located the second floor, benefitting from a north-facing terrace along Perry Lane, over the vehicular access to the development, halfway between Richmond and Queen. Five underground levels will accommodate about 145 residential and visitor parking spaces, while bicycle parking will be at the surface.

The Harlowe's typical floors will include 20 units each with smaller studio and one bedroom south-facing suites, and larger one bedroom plus den and two bedroom plus den suites facing north. The penthouse level consists of three bedroom units up to 1,500 sf.
