About this condo
Following the brilliance of the first two, River City I Lofts and River City II Lofts, the third Phase of the River City development by UrbanCapital is a fantastic final flourish. It’s not surprising so many prospective homeowners flock to the Toronto condos for sale at River City Phase 3, located at 100 Lower River Street East in the Corktown neighbourhood.
Much anticipated since the Building Industry and Land Development Association awarded River City Phase 3 the best design award in 2014, Saucier + Perrotte’s distinguished vision is slated for completion in 2018. At 100 Lower River, the 29-storey building’s architecture is as idiosyncratic as it gets — without sacrificing luxurious comfort.
Facing northwest, modular sections of the building extend outwards boldly, ensuring that every one of the beautiful living spaces contained inside gathers an abundance of light. Lead architect Gilles Saucier calls these sections “crystals,” and they really do resemble gems inset into the building's stout black tower.
Even as asymmetrical as Saucier + Perotte’s design at 100 Lower River is, its style gracefully coalesces thanks to a commitment to a black and white exterior colour scheme. Though the aesthetic exudes contemporary cool, perhaps inspiration behind this architectural wonder lies in the rich mineral history of the Don River.
The perfect balance to its bold aesthetic, the generous and thoughtful amenities within River City Phase 3 cater to all of its residents. For homeowners with young families, the Condos’ playroom is considerate, while those who work from home will be attracted to the common office facilities. For entertainment, there’s a massive party and theatre space that takes over the building’s 4th and 5th storeys.
Creating and environment in which an engaged community may grow, the building offers unique amenities like a tool library and a pet cleaning station, as well as a truly exceptional concierge that can assist with dry cleaning and shoe repair services.
Lastly, the good life at 100 Lower River includes a great gym. The fitness facility here offers state-of-the-art equipment spread out over 2,000 square feet, along with a yoga and aerobics studio.
There are 332 suites in the River City Phase 3 Condos, ranging from approximately 300 to 1,700 square feet. The variety of homes includes studios, one and two bedroom suites with the option of dens, and even a few townhouses. Regardless of size, the suites combine style and functionality for their residents’ benefits.
Hardwood floors and exposed concrete ceilings and columns, along with oversized doors to balconies and terraces, give the suites at 100 Lower River East a soft loft aesthetic. This style was developed during the construction of River City Phase 1 and 2 and perfected in the Phase 3 Condos.
One can see the soft loft style throughout the suites’ finishes and fixtures, yet of all the spaces within these homes it is best seen in the kitchens. They utilize UrbanCapital’s renowned Smart House Kitchen which features appliances seamlessly integrated into streamlined, modern cabinetry.
Residents at 100 Lower River enjoy an active community that only promises to grow in the future. Thanks to public developments like Underpass Park — whose basketball courts attract equal numbers of players and photographers — and the Corktown Common, there is no doubt even more delicious restaurants, cafes, and stores will come to the area.
Alternatively, the Distillery District, already one of the most historically charming areas in the city, is minutes away. And even more still, the vibrant, eclectic Leslieville neighbourhood is just over the river, with many independent boutiques and even more creative chefs offering exciting eating experiences.
From their homes at River City Phase 3, residents can get around the entire city with ease. Drivers need only travel two minutes to get to the Don Roadway onramp, where they can choose to go north through the city on the Don Valley Parkway, or west through the downtown core on the Gardiner Expressway.
For those who prefer public transit, the TTC operates two streetcars in the immediate area. Both the 501 Queen and 504 King stop minutes from the building, on River Street. Either option will take residents from 100 Lower River to downtown Core in minutes, although these streetcars diverge as they head east: The 504 King heads north at Broadview Station, while the 501 Queen travels all the way to Neville Park, in the Beaches.
