Harris Square – The final phase of River City

Overview

Unquestionably the most design forward residential development in Toronto today, Urban Capital’s River City complex has arrived at its last phase with Harris Square.

Named after the quietly elegant public square that it faces, Harris Square will be a series of gyrating pentagonal plates, reflecting the five sides of the site itself, and allowing for oversized balconies and terraces on most floors creating an architectural masterpiece in the River City neighbourhood.

About the neighbourhood

The fourth phase of River City is tucked between Lawren Harris Square and Underpass Park, two of Waterfront Toronto’s spectacular urban parks for the West Don Lands.

This Toronto condo brings you within a short distance of other exciting neighbourhoods such as The Distillery District and the Studio District - Perfect for those who like to explore art galleries and The Opera House! Queen St E is a foodies dream with a variety of pubs, chic restaurants and amazing brunch spots.

In the quaint neighbourhood of West Don Lands and Corktown there are numerous places to stretch for a breath of fresh air too. Residents can take a stroll along the Lower Don River trail and enjoy nature at the 18-acre Corktown Common and the concrete park at Underpass Park.

Transportation

Harris Square has an 89/100 walk score and a 100/100 transit score.

The downtown core is just a quick ride away. The Queen and King streetcars are just steps from your doorstep and connect riders to stations on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line, while the Parliament streetcar connects passengers to the Castle Frank station on the Bloor-Danforth subway line.

Motorists are only a few minutes from the Adelaide Street on ramp to the Don Valley Parkway, and an equally short distance to the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard so getting in out and out of the city is always simple.

  • Pedestrian friendly neighbourhood

About the builder

Urban Capital started out with a 48-unit lofts development back in 1996. That project, on dusty Camden Street in the then Fashion District west of Toronto’s downtown, broke the mold of Toronto development. - Urban living, raw space, and cubic footage rather than square footage!

Since the early days, Urban Capital have delivered over 4,500 urban condominiums, with another 2,600 now under construction and several thousand in the pipeline, totalling over $3.7 billion in development. In 2009 they brought acclaimed Saucier + Perrotte Architectes to Toronto for the River City development; and in 2013 they have continued by expanding to many other cities across Canada.

Their work continues to push with new markets, new architectural approaches, new interior features and layouts, and new environmental measures.
