Amsterdam Urban Towns is a 52-unit townhome project coming soon to 1455 O’Connor Drive in East Toronto. The community by Rise Developments features a contemporary collection of spacious urban towns within a sought-after neighbourhood close to everyday amenities, public transit and Eglinton Avenue’s Golden Mile.

Available homes start from $953,990 and prospective homebuyers are encouraged to register online or contact the sales office at 416 759 1455 to book an appointment.


Nestled within an existing community, Amsterdam features an ideal location between the verdant greenspaces of the Don Valley and the bright lights and retailers of the 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. Other nearby landmarks include Centennial College’s Ashtonbee Campus, Wal-Mart Supercentre, HomeSense, Adonis, Lowe’s and the Eglinton Town Centre Cinemas.


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 Parma Park. Plus, those with children will benefit from nearby schools including Gordon A. Brown Middle School, Victoria Park Public School and Clairlea Public School.

Easy access to the DVP means convenient commutes to downtown Toronto and beyond, however, those who prefer taking public transit will be steps away from the Eglinton Crosstown LRT that’s currently under construction. Situated next to the stop at Eglinton and O’Connor, residents will have a quick and efficient access to rapid transit when the line opens in 2022.


Designed by Guthrie Muscovitch Architects, the homes at Amsterdam boast elegant exterior architecture with a modern flair. The design is characterized by flat roofs, large windows, and façades clad in brick, precast and warm wood accents. Private rooftop terraces provide seamless connections to the outdoors and offer enough space for lounge seating and a barbecue area. A sleek party room complete with a kitchen is also available should you need a little more space for larger occasions. Other onsite amenities include a state-of-the art fitness centre, secure underground parking, central courtyard and an outdoor playground.


Inside, each open-concept layout is thoughtfully designed with space and functionality in mind. Nine-foot ceilings create spacious and airy living spaces and are paired with upgraded finishes like pre-finished laminate floors, energy-efficient windows, and porcelain or ceramic floor tiles in the bathrooms and laundry room. Gourmet kitchens are appointed with stylish quartz countertops, custom cabinets, glass backsplashes and stainless steel appliance packages consisting of a fridge, dishwasher, microwave oven/hood fan combo, and a slide-in gas range.

The sales office is located at 1450 O’Connor Drive in East York. To learn more, call 416 759 1455 for a private appointment.
