Adelaide Street West boasts some of Toronto's most impressive recent intensification. The one-way eastbound street running through the city's Financial District is surrounded by many of Canada's tallest buildings, with the stretch through the east side of the Entertainment District becoming home to more and more high-rise condominium developments.

The stretch west of Spadina, however, is home to a growing collection of mid-rise developments, scaled to suit the lower skyline already existing and envisioned to continue in this area. At the intersection of Brant and Adelaide Streets, one such condominium development — Lamb Development's The Brant Park Condos — is now hinting strongly of its ultimate look as the structure is complete and final exterior details are being installed. Designed by architectsAlliancethe 11-storey condominium block draws inspiration from the elegant simplicity of Mid-Century Modernism and the International Style which sprung from the Bauhaus movement of the 1920s and 30s and other practitioners.
