This totals 80 completed projects, 21 projects under construction and $6-billion in revenue.
The success of Fortress can be traced back to the leadership of their executive team. This team, which accounts for over 75 years of combined experience in the real estate industry, performs ongoing research to continuously reevaluate the projects that are underway.
Located proximal to Bathurst Street and St. Clair Avenue in mid-town Toronto, this condominium building incorporates slab, podium, and tower typologies into its design referencing the surrounding stock of building types in the neighbourhood. The project will incorporate townhomes and a mix of studio up to three-bedroom layouts. The first two floors of the podium with its townhomes will back onto a laneway that will become activated through a targeted landscape strategy enlivening the surrounding pedestrian realm.
