Cresford Development Corporation
Cresford Development Corporation is an organization that’s been building in downtown Toronto for over 40 years. They aspire to create luxurious living units that flow seamlessly from one space to the next. Cresford is largely considered the first developer in Canada to include international fashion brands into the design of their condominium buildings. This attention to aesthetic detail really sets them apart.
They focus on creating residential high-rises with fashion-forward thinking. Their work with internationally-recognized fashion designers allows them to create buildings with an upscale elegance sought after by the sophisticated urban dweller.
These designers include names like Diesel Living, Hermès, Missoni Home, Fendi and Armani. Their more recent units include cutting-edge kitchens designed by the European designer Scavolini. Understandably, their projects are some of the most coveted in the city. Labels are one thing, but every development needs someone to pull the entire thing together. Enter Brian Gluckstein. Gluckstein is an interior designer who has worked with Cresford since the 1990’s when the team gained recognition for their renowned Merchandise Building. The Merchandise Building is one of the first heritage commercial buildings that was repurposed for modern residency.
According to Gluckstein, fashion designers have become eager to enter the world of domestic products, whether it be bedding or furniture. It used to be that interior home design was about two years behind conventional fashion, but now the two worlds converge simultaneously. It’s not just the suites that benefit from this. Under Gluckstein’s leadership, many of their developments have their entire lobbies and amenity spaces designed by major fashion labels. Casa II’s is developed by Missoni Home, MYC by Lema and Casa III by Hermès.
As impressive and stylish as these projects are, aesthetics are only part of the equation. For Cresford, location is also vital. This developer places priority on finding thriving hotspots across the city. Their work can be found from Yorkville to the waterfront. They aim to build close to five-star restaurants, chic lounges and vibrant arts and culture scenes.
As the first developer to dress their condos up with fashion labels, they strive to continuously innovate, bringing style and luxury to the condominium market. They look for new ways to implement European trends into Canada’s most exciting and thriving city.
