  2. 2. the team from left to right: Mark Mandelbaum, Alessandro Munge, Joe Latobesi, Anne Lambrou, Andy DeSantis and Barry Fenton LONDON CALLING London is best described as a city of remarkable contradictions. Ancient monuments stand next to futuristic visions of steel and glass. The world’s longest reigning monarchy exists alongside a twenty-first century modern democracy. Time moves at warp speed here even as it sometimes slows down to savour the traditional afternoon tea ceremony. Home to the world’s defining trends in art, music, design, food, fashion and film, London is a global style-maker in every sense of the word. So when Lanterra Developments envisioned a new condominium inspired by the true essence of London, they knew they couldn’t do justice to the concept without experiencing London up close and personal. In May of 2012, a handpicked team – Mark Mandelbaum and Barry Fenton of Lanterra Developments, Real Estate Professional – Anne Lambrou, Andy DeSantis and Joe Latobesi of Montana Steele Strategic Marketing and Alessandro Munge of Munge-Leung Interior Design – spent over a week in London, absorbing the sights and sounds, cultures and cuisines, arts and architectures, luxury and lifestyles of the most exciting city on the planet. The idea was to look beyond the obvious and get inspired by the finest in design, architecture and boutique luxury living that London has to offer; then bring it to Toronto and incorporate some of those quintessential elements of London in their new condominium at Bay and Wellesley. The result is a residence that’s both timeless and modern, classic and contemporary. A residence that celebrates the historic connection between two great cities separated by a pond. Welcome to The Britt Condominiums. the london eye /westminsterBRIT 0008 Main Brochure.indd 2-3 21/08/12 5:04 PM
  3. 3. BRITT HERITTAGE Visiting London for the first time frequently seems like a long series of “déjà vu” moments: confronting for the first time buildings, monuments and urban vistas that you’ve never seen before but seem so, well, familiar-- whether it’s Big Ben, or Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, or Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral or Tower Bridge. It’s daunting and exhilarating at the same time. opposite page: london / big ben in westminsterBRIT 0008 Main Brochure.indd 4-5 21/08/12 5:04 PM
  4. 4. London was unquestionably the world’s first modern megalopolis—the largest London is a timeless city and a kaleidoscope of tradition and modernity, A ROYAL city in the world for centuries—but, at where old and new, classic and TRADITION its core, it’s essentially a series of urban contemporary live side by side.

  6. 6. BRITT ARCHITECTTURE One key reason why London can seem so eclectic is that no single architectural style defines it. Contemporary London is undergoing an extraordinary period of rebirth and renewal. Much like Toronto’s downtown, where modern steel and glass converse with traditional stone to sculpt a whole new language of urban architecture. Case in point, the stately Sutton Place Hotel at Bay & Wellesley, soon to be The Britt. opposite page: london / city hall & the tower bridgeBRIT 0008 Main Brochure.indd 10-11 21/08/12 5:04 PM
  7. 7. London is a veritable compendium of architecture through the ages. In Whitehall and Westminster, London is very Gothic both of the ancient and medieval variety—the 12th century Westminster Abbey—or the 19th century neo-Gothic kind, as in Sir Charles Barry’s magnificent Palace of Westminster. In Mayfair and Bloomsbury, London is decidedly Georgian with yellow brick townhouses lining its famous squares: Berkeley, Grosvenor, Bedford and Russell. In Whitehall and Westminster, London is very Gothic both of the ancient and medieval. When it came time to rebuild after the Great Fire of London, famous architects like Inigo Jones opted for “Palladian” – to wit, the magnificent Banqueting Hall in Whitehall, with its famous Rubens fresco ceiling. Others, like Sir Christopher Wren, arguably the city’s single most famous architect, went Baroque and the result was one of London’s most iconic buildings, St. Paul’s Cathedral.BRIT 0008 Main Brochure.indd 12-13 21/08/12 5:04 PM

Living in fashionable hotels has long been a staple of London life and here again, legendary hotels are very much part of the warp and weft of Toronto life.

  24. 24. BRITT ATTITUDE Like Toronto, London is a city of neighbourhoods. While Mayfair houses aristocrats in town palaces like Devonshire House, Chelsea boasts wealthy arty Bohemians like Mick Jagger, who at one time lived on Cheyne Walk near the Thames. And West End is where power, style and luxury intersect. Not unlike Bay & Wellesley in Toronto, longtime home to the Sutton Place hotel and today the site of The Britt. opposite page: london / piccadilly circusBRIT 0008 Main Brochure.indd 46-47 21/08/12 5:06 PM

  26. 26. The Bay/Wellesley neighbourhood has it all and, as a consequence, the best restaurants, clubs, bars, stores, hotels, spas are mere moments away by foot, cab, or TTC. Money & Power. Gucci, Glamour & Gray Matter. Like London’s West End, what’s unique about Bay and Wellesley is that it straddles so many of Toronto’s “in” destinations. The province’s power brokers are nearby at Queen’s Park. Fashionistas swarm up the street in the environs of Bay/Bloor and Yorkville. Eggheads ply their trade across the street at the U of T. And Big Money is just a mile or so south on Bay at King. This neighbourhood has it all and, as a consequence, the best restaurants, clubs, bars, stores, hotels, spas are mere moments away by foot, cab, or TTC. Where in London could you match this collection of urban lifestyle “assets”? The answer would likely be at the eastern end of Mayfair, near Regent Street. For Holt’s, Toronto’s high-end fashion emporium, read Selfridges on Oxford Street. For gourmet restaurants like Sassafraz in Toronto, think The Wolseley in London. For Bay/Wellesley’s near neighbour, the U of T and its brainy Annex neighbour, read Bloomsbury and the University of London. For Soho, across Regent Street from Mayfair, read Toronto’s mini-Soho at Church/Wellesley.BRIT 0008 Main Brochure.indd 50-51 21/08/12 5:06 PM
