River City Registration Starts Now
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. To register or for more information, visit www.rivercitytoronto.com. 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.
I agree 111%. I've been looking forward to seeing the WDL neighbourhood become a reality. The Precinct and Block plans are very well done and leaves a sense of hope and excitement for this area of the City. I registered as soon as I read jks' post.We could get some exceptional design in this area (both architectually and streetscape/landscape). This is very exciting and I would love to be a pioneer and buy in this area. And the more midrises, and the less point towers on 2 story bases, the better.
