Amsterdam Urban Towns is a new low-rise community coming soon to an existing neighbourhood in east Toronto. The townhome project by Rise Developments is located at 1455 O’Connor Drive and is within proximity to great shopping, schools, parks and public transit. Prices start from the high-$600,000s and prospective homebuyers can now register online for the latest updates and to gain priority status.

Situated within a mature neighbourhood dotted with existing homes and commercial spaces, Amsterdam offers a well-connected community just minutes away from the DVP and the new Crosstown LRT. When completed in 2021, the LRT will stretch 19 kilometres across Eglinton Avenue from Mount Dennis to Kennedy Station, with connections to 54 bus routes, various GO Transit lines and the TTC’s Line 1, 2 and 3 subway.

Residents will also enjoy easy access to all the shops and services along Eglinton Avenue East on the renowned Golden Mile. This vibrant community is in the midst of revitalization with the Eglinton Square Shopping Centre (home to anchor tenants Hudson’s Bay, Metro and Shoppers Drug Mart) currently under redevelopment. A new public piazza, street-level retail and other amenities are all part of the plan to create a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use community.


O’Connor Drive itself is dotted with convenience stores, restaurants and recreational facilities like the East York Gymnastics Club, Tonic Living, Toronto Climbing Academy and The Home Depot. Plus, those with children will benefit from nearby schools including Gordon A. Brown Middle School, Victoria Park Public School and Clairlea Public School.

Designed by Guthrie Muscovitch Architects, Amsterdam features contemporary architecture characterized by flat roofs, large windows and a facade clad in brick, precast and warm wood accents. All designs offer a private patio, balcony or large rooftop terrace featuring private expansive views and offer the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining with enough space for lounge seating, a barbecue and dining furniture. A sleek party room is also available should you need a little more space for larger occasions. Other onsite amenities include a state-of-the art fitness centre, central courtyard and an outdoor playground.

Spacious suites include two- and three-bedroom designs ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet of living space and feature private patios in addition to the rooftop terraces. Floorplans are bright, spacious and functional, making the most of the open-concept living areas. Modern kitchens are appointed with stylish quartz countertops, while generously-sized bedrooms have plenty of storage.
