River City


Location: West Donland

As the first phase of Toronto's new revitalized waterfront, River City is Toronto's groundbreaker for the twenty first century.

A five building community of over 900 loft-style condominiums and family-friendly townhouses, together with street-level restaurants, cafes, and boutiques, it is about a new way of living, and a new style of living, unlike any other in Toronto.

The first phase of River City, is being launched in early 2010 and will be ready for occupancy starting in 2012. River City will be a collection of 5 buildings built over the next seven to ten years.

Conceived by Montreal-based Saucier+Perrotte Architects, working together with Toronto-based ZAS Architects, River City will look like nothing else in Toronto.

Neither typically modern nor in any way historical, Saucier+Perrotte's design at River City will combine bold forms with inflected planes, dark panels with transparent glass, and raw materials with soft landscaping, all in ways that reflect our unique surroundings.

River City, the first private sector development in Waterfront Toronto's West Don Lands community, is now accepting registrations for its first phase. A LEED Gold development, River City will include 850 residential units of condominiums, lofts and townhouses priced from $179,900, as well as boutiques, stores and restaurants, surrounded by the seven hectares (17-acres) Don River Park.

Developed by Urban Capital and designed by Saucier + Perrotte Architects, one of Canada's most respected and award-winning design firms, River City will be a collection of bold forms and innovative spaces. The sales office for River City is expected to open this fall, while construction of the development is scheduled to begin in 2010 and first phase of occupancy is slated for 2011.

The West Don Lands will be a sustainable community where design excellence, sustainability and technology come together. Designed to be a lively and vibrant neighbourhood, it will offer a mix of housing for people at all stages of life and income levels. It will feature nine hectares (23-acres) of parks and public spaces, 6,000 new residential units of which 1,200 will be affordable housing, transit connections within five minutes of each home, and 750,000 square feet of employment, commercial and community space. The revitalization of West Don Lands will proceed over the next 10-12 years in three phases.



It will contain approximately 15,000 square foot landscaped courtyard of undulating landforms, with an illuminated outdoor heated pool on a floating deck, together with an outdoor dining area nestled in a grove of trembling aspens. A double storey lounge and party room, located in a "lightbox" cantilevered out of the south side of the River street building towards the Richmond-Adelaide ramps, will contain a kitchen and bar, lounge seating, wireless high speed internet access, a billiards table and a media area that can be booked for movies and sports events. There will also befully equipped excercise rooms as well as guest suites.

Toronto has been awarded the 2015Pan Am Games. This is extremely exciting for all of those involved in River City, as River City will be located immediately beside the new18 acre Don River Park as well as the new Pan Am Athletes Village.

What this means is that what was supposed to be developed over a 15 year timeline will now be developed in 5 years..parks, bicycle paths,roads, streetscape, transportation, restaurants, cafes, shopping and more, and all within a very short distance to Yonge St. and Bay St.
