The word came in February that Lamb Development had acquired additional lots to the east of their Brant Park condominium project, located at 438 Adelaide Street West at Brant Street. UrbanToronto has all the new project renderings now, and they show the design lengthened from 14 bays long to 20, and a building which will now extend to 410 Adelaide West.

The project has turned quite a few heads, as it breaks from the typical glass box housing typology we're seeing across the city. The style is reminiscent of the mid-century International Style, with clean white lines dividing the building into organized compartments, while simultaneously adding a level of depth to the facade. While no direct reference has been made, it's being argued inspiration came from Toronto's very own Tower Hill Apartments at St. Clair and Spadina, dating from 1969.

Brant Park will feature at-grade retail, and is situated directly across Brant Street from Saint Andrew's Park, and 2 blocks northwest of Clarence Square. Now taking registrations, their website announces phase 2 is soon to be released. We've updated our dataBase listing for the project where you can find all of the project renderings, including many more detailed views and some older ones allow you to see the evolution of the deisgn. Otherwise you can check out the associated Forum threads to see what everyone's talking about and get in on the discussion yourself.
