Urban Capital are getting set to launch the fourth and final phase of the award winning River City Condominium project, Harris Square Condos. The River City condominiums have been very influential in shaping the growth and redevelopment of the West Don Lands, which has become a thriving neighbourhood and catalyst for growth in Toronto’s thriving Downtown East.
Harris Square Condos will be launching in the coming weeks, and with just 140 suites we expect this project to sell out in no time at all. To register first Priority VIP access, register by clicking the below.
Below are our top 5 reasons that we can’t wait for Harris Square Condos.
1. World Class Design and Attention to Detail
One thing that all River City Condominiums have in common is that they are all designed with stunning architecture that are amongst the best that Toronto has to offer. All three of the previous phases have won design awards from BILD (Building Industry and Land Development Association), PUG (Architecture awards voted by “the people”) and TUDA (Toronto Urban Design Awards) and are often recognized as some of the most visually striking towers in the City.
The condos are designed by Saucier+Perrotte based out of Montreal and are known for their dramatic and bold designs.
While we don’t have any final images for Harris Square at this time, the early renderings already give us a sense to expect more of the same – a bold and dramatic 12 storey condominium that will certainly stand out from the rest.
2. Highly accessible to the Downtown Core
The River City development is located less than 2km east of Yonge Street, making it highly accessible to all the things that make Toronto one of the most desirable Cities in the world.
To help put that into some context – by comparison, Liberty Village, a highly sought after neighbourhood in Downtown West is almost twice as far from Yonge Street and just under 4km away.
3. Steps to an 18 acre park
One of biggest draws of River City is the proximity to Corktown Common, a brand new award winning 18 acre park that is one of the best urban parks in Toronto. The park was opened in 2013 and was a $135 million project and contains playgrounds, splash pads, an athletic field, huge open lawns, tables, benches, barbecues, a boardwalk and an off-leash dog area.
Large green space is very limited in Downtown Toronto which makes living next door to Corktown Common a very unique proposition and will certainly help values and rental rates moving forward.
4. In the heart of a brand new thriving community
Harris Square Condos is located in the heart of a brand new and thriving community that was originally used to host the PanAm Games in 2015.
Because of the games, there was huge investment into infrastructure in the community which now includes the brand new park (mentioned above), a huge new retail environment at the base of Front Street that is getting better and better, a highly walkable area, a brand new world class YMCA and new condominiums for those that want to make this place home.
This is a neighbourhood that is only scratching the surface of what it will become.
5. The Potential For Growth is Huge
We have talked about Toronto Growing East for a number of years and there is no better time to invest in this area than today.
The brand new Downtown Relief Subway Line is becoming closer to reality and Toronto have highlighted Downtown East as the high priority area for the new subway line, and plans for a brand new multi-billion dollar Financial District Hub to be developed at the Unilever Site in Toronto East will combine to turn this area into one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in the entire City.
