Just to clarify, River City is just one development project in West Don Lands and does not necessarily represent the entire extent of WDL Phase I.

The River City project itself by Urban Capital is broken up into 4 phases:
  • phase 1 includes 2 buildings fronting King Street & River Street (being 15 and 7 storeys respectively)
  • phase 2 will be the 'cube-ist' tower (12s?) parallel/facing Don River
  • phase 3 will be the (30s?) point tower next to the Central Park
  • phase 4 will be the (12s?) tower centred on River Square
Site plan for River City

Okay, I've whittled down the Exhibit Brokers' Opening to these pics, most focusing on the model:




Roy Varacalli, architect of Exhibit and partner at Bazis, Barbara Lawlor, president of Baker Real Estate, and Michael Gold, president of Bazis






The Bloor Street frontage




Terraces where the cubes shift are quite large








A laneway will be maintained between Exhibit and MuseumHouse




The 9th storey rooftop garden sits above the integrated parking garage












The sales centre features touch screens which feature floor plans and full info about the project.




It was a big opening. Sales to the public still to come...

I think it's designed in a way that would give it that old world look where greenery/landscaping is absent

I was really worried that they were going to destroy the laneway. I love that alley and assumed Toronto would never recognize how wonderful it is.

This made me very happy. Looks like Toronto will get a funky pedestrian only retail strip after all. Melbourne and London have them, now we will too. How cool is this! Hopefully, the other laneways in downtown Toronto will get the same treatment instead of being destroyed.

Retaining the historic laneway, renovating it, and the encouragement of retail

Interesting news with respect to this development.

The cladding material will be different from what you typically find, which is glass, metal or concrete precast. The material itself will be unique, as well as the colour.

There are all kinds of new products being used all over the world, like various options in ceramic and clay. We're exploring the possibilities right now. In most high rise condos the colour comes from the glass, whether it be green, blue or grey. We're going to shift the focus to the cladding, which is usually just an accent. Colour is a huge part of this design.
