South Etobicoke's Long Branch community has always been about its connection with Lake Ontario's shoreline; the neighbourhood started as a cottage getaway for Torontonians in the late 1800s, and was named after a seaside summer resort town in New Jersey. Currently populated by a mix of quaint single-family homes and mid-century apartment buildings, a new housing typology is coming to the area through the Longhaven Towns project by Inmino Developments.
Planned to rise at Lake Shore Boulevard West and Long Branch Avenue, the Guthrie Muscovitch Architects-designed development will consist of two four-storey buildings containing a limited collection of 28 luxury stacked townhomes. Priced starting in the $600,000s, the project's units are available in two and three-bedroom layouts ranging from 1,006 ft² to 1,543 ft² in area. Renderings show off kitchens by Scavolini featuring Miele appliances.
While some of the suites feature private rooftop terraces, all residents of the development will have access to a selection of outdoor amenity spaces with landscaping by Popovich Associates. These are set to include a landscaped courtyard, a barbecue and picnic area, and a children's' playground with a seating area.
The project will put its residents within walking range of Long Branch GO station, offering a 35-minute commute to Union Station in Downtown Toronto. By car, Longhaven Towns’ residents will only have to travel 17 minutes to reach the heart of the city in good traffic, and just 14 minutes to Pearson International Airport.
