Fans of the avant garde modernism of UrbanCapital's River City development will be pleased to hear that the next phase of the Saucier + Perrotte Architects-designed development will be having its public launch soon. River City 3 (or RC3) will be the third phase of the new condominium development located in the up and coming West Don Lands district east of Downtown Toronto.

RC3 will be the tallest building in the West Don Lands community, scraping the skies at 29 storeys high. RC3's avant-garde design features a black and white facade with accents of golden yellow framing select balconies. According to Gilles Saucier of Saucier + Perrotte Architects, the 29-storey tower is a "continuity of the angular black volumes that give shape to the entire River City complex; this final, vertical volume is composed of the elements found on the site: angular crystalline minerals of black and white. The tower conceptually erodes to symbolize this dual mineral nature: a solid black object inset with white diaphanous crystals.” Recently, this structure was the winner of BILD's Best Design Award in Toronto.

Residents of the development will have access to three floors of amenity space. A two-storey party room and theatre lies on the 4th and 5th floor, featuring a full kitchen. Perfect for families, RC3 also includes a family-friendly kids' playroom, connected to a hobby and craft room. For gym-goers, a 2,000 square foot fully-equipped gym is on the third floor, featuring weights, spinning bikes, and cardio machines.
