River City Neighborhood Development

New residential neighborhood in the West Don Lands precinct of Toronto marks a significant initiative within the City.

The development of this new residential neighborhood in the West Don Lands precinct of Toronto marks a significant initiative within the City. As the first new waterfront neighborhood, our design and development team intends to bring a unique and bold response to a brownfield, post industrial site that stretches along the Don River.

Comprised of four city blocks, this new neighborhood will create 900 – 1000 residential units in what will be a green and sustainable community. In embracing a LEED Gold target of sustainability for this project, the design concept will create a contemporary metropolitan district that serves as a new model of green living. It will be a neighborhood where pedestrian friendly streets, exceptional parks and public spaces are linked with an architecture inspired by flow, movement and continuity.

Working within a pre-established built form master plan, these new residential units will range from townhouses, lofts, and condominium units in buildings ranging from five-storey and upwards. Prominently located at one end of the development will be a 24 storey residential tower with an iconic form and a desirable address facing Don River Park, Toronto’s newest urban park.
