The Harlowe Condos

A high-rise condo at Toronto

Lamb Development Corp.‘s The Harlowe is a new condo development at 618 Richmond Street West in Toronto. The construction was finished in 2018. The Harlowe has 210 apartments in all. The dimensions range from 875 to 1248 square feet.
 
In contrast to the slick and often flashy appearance of many contemporary Queen West condominiums, Lamb Development Corp chose to pay homage to the neighbourhood’s history by bringing a modest, yet beautiful warehouse-style design to The Harlowe at 608 Richmond Street West. The objective is to create something that feels like it has always been there, so that even if the building is spanking new, it immediately feels like home.
 
Overall, the structure is modest and humble, taking care not to disrupt the historic architecture present throughout the Fashion District. Lamb Development Corp., on the other hand, offered just enough amenities to make occupants feel luxurious every time they walk through the front doors of 608 Richmond Street West. The Harlowe Condos are designed with “timeless beauty with a feeling of handmade quality,” according to Lamb Development Corp.

Highlights

Neighborhood

While the area around the Harlowe Condos was once an industrial center, it has since become one of the city’s liveliest. Because there are so many options, the primary problem for residents of 608 Richmond West, which is located in the Fashion District and only seconds from Queen Street West, will be deciding what to do on any given day.

Transportation
 
The development has a reasonable transportation network and a perfect transit score. Residents can readily reach bus lines that are only a few feet away. Although there are streetcars on Queen Street, King Street, and Spadina Avenue, the Fashion District is largely a pedestrian neighborhood. With its position just around the corner from Richmond and Bathurst, the Harlowe Condos make it easy to go about the city.
 
Those traveling east or west can use the King Streetcar, with eastbound riders able to transfer onto the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line at either St. Andrew or King station. Drivers can also use both of these main thoroughfares. The Gardiner Expressway is also nearby, which is especially useful for individuals making longer travels to the east or west.

Shopping and Dining

The work, like most of downtown Toronto, appears to go on indefinitely. Shopaholics will love the shops on Queen Street West, while foodies will love the scene on both Queen and King West. Loblaws has also constructed a massive high-end shop with subterranean parking.

Education

Another reason this region is appealing, particularly to families and children, is the abundance of schools in the neighborhood. The condo is close to numerous public and private schools, including Niagara Street Junior Public School, Ryerson Community School, and Heydon Park Secondary School. St. Mary’s Catholic School, which is attached to St. Mary’s Church on Bathurst, is also nearby for elementary-aged students.

Outdoor

For individuals who like to spend their time outside, the Harlowe Condos are an excellent starting point for exploring Toronto‘s various green spaces. Trinity Bellwoods Park is approximately a 15-minute walk away, where you can play tennis, throw a Frisbee or a baseball, or let your dog run free in the dog bowl. This park also has a skating rink, a playground, a community center with an indoor pool, and a weekly farmer’s market in the summer.

Lake Ontario, on the other hand, is not far away. It takes around 20 minutes to walk to the sea, although a fast streetcar trip down Bathurst can also suffice. Those interested in exploring can go east or west along the car-free Martin Goodman Trail to numerous parks and beaches, as well as the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, the Harbourfront Centre, the Exhibition Place, and the Budweiser Stage (previously known as the Molson Amphitheatre).

Amenities

All of the units at the Harlowe Condos are exquisite, even before homeowners move in and add their own unique touches, according to interior designs by Core Architects. Exposed brick, hardwood floors, exposed concrete, abundance of glass, large baths, and stainless steel appliances are among the features of these residences.

The apartments also have 9-foot ceilings, which make every unit seem expansive regardless of size. In terms of size, the condominiums at 608 Richmond Street West range from 875 to 1,248 square feet. Some Harlowe residences have individual balconies, and every outside space has a gas connection for a barbeque, which is unusual for downtown Toronto condominiums for sale. 

Many of the units include two or three bedrooms, a probable reference to the current trend of families preferring condominiums over single-family houses. Naturally, there are a few of penthouse apartments available, with the finest views in the house. Parking, a fitness center, a private lounge and eating room, and a concierge are among the amenities. You’re in a great location near all the city has to offer, so anything that isn’t at The Harlowe shouldn’t be more than a few minutes away.
