river city 3

Situated on Lower River Street, just south of King Street East, River City 3 will have excellent amenities within walking distance. The condo and townhouse project by Urban Capital Property Group and Waterfront Toronto will call the West Don Lands home, and that means residents will enjoy parks, restaurants, athletic facilities and art gallery steps from their front door.

Though the development is close to the core, it doesn’t want for green spaces. After all, it’s just a two minute stroll from Corktown Common, one of the cities newest parks. Spanning 18-acres along the West Don Lands, the park features a splashpad, playground, bike trails, community tables as well as naturalized sections that you can hardly believe are growing so close to downtown Toronto.

The massive green space is also home to a 1,300-square foot marsh, an urban prairie, an upland meadow and a low wetland meadow – these features will help the city with its stormwater management in an eco-friendly way.

Just a minute away, there’s another park wholly unlike any other public space in the city. Underpass Park finds a new purpose for otherwise under-utilized space, turning the connections between Adelaide Street, Eastern Avenue, and Richmond Street into a play area. Underpass Park is equipped with a playground, basketball courts and skate park.

River City 3 will also have more immediate greenery. Claude Cormier, the landscape architect behind whimsical public spaces in Toronto such as Sugar Beach as well as the Evergreen Brickworks, will be designing the project’s outdoor spaces, including the green roof located on the seventh floor.

Whether you’re hoping to swim or skate, the project’s proximity to Regent Park is a big perk. The area’s ongoing revitalization has seen new community facilities pop up, including the award-winning aquatic centre, and more recently, an outdoor skating rink. A new basketball court, soccer field and running track are also scheduled to open in the fall of 2015. All that is just 10 minutes away!

There are also plenty of opportunities to absorb arts and culture close by. The Distillery District is home to boutique shops, a brewpub, restaurants and cafes. There are even seven art galleries and a number of performance spaces including the well-loved Soulpepper Theatre, known for its interpretations of history’s greatest plays.

Along King Street and Queen Street East, Corktown features an eclectic array of cafes, restaurants and design stores. Plus, being a quick walk from both streets means easy streetcar access.

River City 3 will feature residences for just about every buyer. The 332 units range from 527 to 1,545-square feet in size, meaning first-time buyers or families will be able to call the 29-storey structure home. On-site amenities include a kid’s playroom, a hobby room, a 2,000-square foot fitness facility and much more.

The sales centre is located at King Street East and Lower River, so be sure to drop by to learn more. It’s open Monday to Thursday from noon to 6pm and weekends from noon to 5pm.
