River City Development

A benchmark for sustainable design.

Why this is a great design

Designed by Saucier + Perrotte Architects, one of Canada’s most respected and award-winning design firms, River City is unlike any other development in Toronto. The signature buildings are a collection of distinctive and bold forms, designed for excellent livability and sustainability.

The beautifully designed suites and amenities will include stunning landscaping throughout the complex, an outdoor pool and a two-storey glass “lightbox” lounge. The sleek white exterior of the three connected 12-storey mini buildings are a striking contrast to the edgy dark exteriors of the anchoring buildings.

River City will also be the first residential building in Canada to receive a LEED Gold carbon-neutral development due in part to its green roofs, hybrid car and bike share program, and parking wired for electric-car charging stations.

River City was named the 2010 Best Hi-rise Building by BILD, the Building Industry and Land Development Association. And most recently received a 2014 PUG Award for outstanding achievement in architecture and design in the residential category.
