Smart creative interiors.
Extensive indoor and outdoor amenities.

Surrounded by beautiful new parks and public spaces, and just minutes from the downtown core, River City is unlike any other development in Toronto today. Designed for excellent livability and maximum sustainability, it is the community for the 21st century.

Winner of BILD’s Best Design Award, a People's Choice Award and a Toronto Urban Design Award, River City is a four-phase,

LEED Gold community of over 1,100 loft-style condominiums, family-friendly townhouses, and ground floor retail. Spanning the area from King Street East to the new Corktown Common, it is a vital part of the revitalized West Don Lands and the city’s waterfront redevelopment that is well underway.

Phases 1 and 2 created a new architectural language in Toronto. And now the third phase of this award-winning development takes that daring design to new heights.

RC3 is the next step of Saucier + Perrotte’s unique vision. At 29 storeys, it is the first (and one of the only) towers to be built in the West Don Lands, and there is no doubt that its asymmetrical, cutting-edge look turns Toronto’s residential architecture on its head.


Design has been liberated from its usual constraints, freed from the limitations of the straight line and the standard box. Cantilevered cubes are randomly stacked at different heights and varying protrusions, boldly engaging the city around it.

This is adventurous architecture that would be at home in Barcelona or London – beautiful, bold and completely unlike anything our city has seen before. An organized chaos, RC3 leaves behind the typical Toronto condo tower.
