The Toronto developer known as the “Condo King” is planning his first project in Edmonton.

Brad Lamb has announced the pre-construction sales will start soon on the 36-storey Jasper House condo, just north of Jasper Avenue on 106th Street.

Lamb has been working on projects in Calgary for the past 3 ½ years and wanted to move into another city in western Canada. He said Edmonton met his criteria.

“We looked for a city that had a certain ‘cool’ factor, we looked for a city that has enough affluence to buy our product,  and we looked for a city that has enough building capacity to build these kind of buildings,” he said.

“It’s a city that in my opinion punches above its weight. I think it’s got tremendous potential for being a great North American city. “

Lamb spoke to Edmonton AM host Mark Connolly about his upcoming projects.
