Early on, Broccolini set its sights on diversifying an ever-growing portfolio of industrial, commercial and residential properties. The family-owned developer is branching out from its stronghold in the Quebec real estate market to launch River & Fifth, its first ever residential high-rise project in Toronto. The 37-storey tower will be nestled between Corktown and Riverside, putting residents within easy reach of iconic east end attractions such as The Distillery District, Corktown Common, St. Lawrence Market and The Opera House.

Designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, River & Fifth features a striking façade with stacked framing on east and west elevations. An 11-storey podium gives the residence a mid-rise feel, and includes 25,000 square feet of amenity space and a series of urban townhomes. Priced from the $400,000s, the condominiums range from 341-square-foot studios to 1,401-square-foot three-bedroom units.

The functional floorplans suit a variety of homebuyers, from first-timers looking to score a studio at a price they can afford, to growing families in need of multiple bedrooms and ample outdoor space. The U31-crafted interiors feature wide-plank flooring, two-tone kitchen cabinets, modern fixtures and appliances finished in matte black.

Among the amenity offerings are a kids’ game room and lounge, state-of-the-art fitness area with a ballet bar and boxing gym, and innovative co-working spaces. The 12th floor rooftop amenity space boasts a Baja-style swimming pool — featuring a submerged shelf where sun seekers can lounge around in shallow water. Immediately to the south of the development will be a new dedicated parkland, including a pedestrian connection to Bayview Avenue that leads to Corktown Common.

River & Fifth is surrounded by a network of parks, ravine lands, hiking trails and waterways, allowing residents to feel a connection to the outdoors, despite being only minutes away from downtown Toronto. “The neighbourhood provides an ideal combination of city and nature, with the Don Valley Trail, Corktown Common and Riverdale Park all within five minutes from each other, where you can escape the hustle and bustle,” says Michael Broccolini, VP Business Development and Finance.

Many gems of the east end are within a short stroll of River & Fifth — think Merchants of Green Coffee, Hi-Low, Lady Marmalade, The Broadview Hotel, Wayla Bar & Lounge and Ruby Watchco. Hop on the Dundas or Queen streetcars, or connect with the Don Valley Parkway in minutes flat.
