Conceived by renowned Montreal architects Gilles Saucier and Andre Perrotte, River City Phase 1 is a darkly beautiful structure with a modern sensibility, and a nod to the industrial nature of the area’s past. It combines bold forms and playful angles, dark panels and transparent glass, and raw materials and soft landscaping, all in ways that reflect River City’s unique surroundings.
Phase 1 is made up of two buildings, each with soaring lobbies and high-design amenities. The buildings are connected via a three storey enclosed bridge, similar to the industrial design of warehouse buildings in New York, Chicago and Montreal. Like people, these buildings fit in by being completely unique – and truly themselves.
LIVING IN WEST DON LANDS
West Don Lands is a master planned neighbourhood that has been developed under the watchful eye of Waterfront Toronto ensuring adherence to strict guidelines for design and sustainability. The result is a truly 21st Century neighbourhood. West Don Lands has adopted many ideas from leading urban revitalization projects around the world. For example; Woonerfs – an innovative streetscape – commonly seen in European cities, are designed to harmoniously weave pedestrians, cyclists and motorists together through neighbourhood streets. West Don Lands will also be awash in culture with public art installations being a focal point of this neighbourhood.
This development is located in park heaven, with 12 parks and a long list of recreation facilities within a 15 min walk.
