TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greybrook Securities Inc. and Greybrook Realty Partners Inc. are pleased to announce the successful closing of an $11,200,000 private placement of units of the Greybrook Avenue-Sheppard Limited Partnership.

Proceeds from the private placement will be used for the acquisition and development of two residential condominiums – a 90 unit project located in the highly desirable Bedford Park neighborhood, and a 162 unit project located in the heart of Willowdale. The development project is a joint venture between the partnership and Stafford Developments, a well-established Toronto developer.

The first site is located at 1580 Avenue Road in one of Toronto's most exclusive neighborhoods – Bedford Park. Bedford Park's quiet streets, mature trees, quality schools and parks, as well as its proximity to Highway 401 and Lawrence subway station attract young professionals, families and empty nesters.

The second site which is located at 179 Sheppard Avenue East is surrounded by several parkettes and playgrounds. Willowdale is a vibrant and cosmopolitan urban center with luxury condominiums, custom built homes, shining office towers, a newly renovated shopping mall and a theatre complex.

"Stafford Developments is proud to be partnering with Greybrook on two more exciting development projects," commented Gary Goldman, President and Founder of Stafford Developments. "We have enjoyed partnering with Greybrook in the past and we look forward to this project continuing to build upon our track record of success."

Greybrook Securities CEO, Sasha Cucuz, who shares Mr. Goldman's enthusiasm for the sites and the project, provided the following comment: "Greybrook is thrilled to be working with Stafford Developments on this venture. With over 50 years of experience in Canada and the US, Stafford Developments has experience with virtually every type of real estate development and we look forward to another successful outcome for Greybrook and our investors."
