Few buildings in Toronto, let alone whole groups of them, boast consistently uncompromisingly modern architecture, but through its four phases, Urban Capital's River City community has shown that new condo buildings in this city do not have to be the insipid product that is most often foisted upon us. All designed by Saucier + Perrotte of Montreal and ZAS of Toronto, River City's buildings — including Harris Square, River City's fourth and final phase, in this shot by UrbanToronto Forum contributor skycandy of its sheltered entry area — use simple but high quality materials boldly and cleanly to create a sense of place, which is increasingly rare in this age of mostly generic architecture.
