Lifetime Developments—operating as Lifetime River Street Inc. for this building—has submitted a proposal for 111 River Street, located at the southeast corner of River and Dundas streets on the east side of Downtown Toronto between Regent Park and the Lower Don Valley. Designed by Wallman Architects, the development includes residential and retail uses in a building 34-storeys high in total, and rectilinear in appearance with a chamfered northwest corner. The tower is predominantly clad in white, contrasting with the dark-tinted podium which will be 6 storeys tall. The ground floor boasts a double-height residential lobby accessed from River Street, plus 422.2 m² of retail space wrapping around the corner of River and Dundas.

Residential units begin on the second floor. The unit mix contains 309 residential units comprised of 37 studio units, 137 one-bedroom units, 2 one-bedroom plus den units, 96 two-bedroom units, 5 bedroom plus den units, and 32 three-bedroom units. Interior amenities totalling 618 m² are planned for the first, second and the seventh storeys while another 618 m² of outdoor amenities would be found on the second and seventh storeys. The structure’s northwest corner is cut away to provide open space at the corner with benches and tables available for public use.

The tower will be clad in window-wall with white spandrel, and stand at a height of 112 metres across 34 storeys and the mechanical penthouse. Inset balconies run along the River Street and Dundas street frontage with balconies projecting from the east facade. Visitor bicycle parking would be found at grade, with 309 resident bicycle spaces at ground plus on ninth garage below alongside 71 vehicular parking spaces.
