Harris Square

River City resides in the revitalized West Don Lands neighbourhood. Once home to the Unilever factory and a hodge podge of industrial buildings and film studios, this area of Toronto is quickly becoming one of the most talked about redevelopments.
Like its predecessors, Harris Square is architecturally unique, with coloured and smoked glass offset by a concrete structure. This modern and clean aesthetic is a direct response to the area's brownfield, post industrial history.
The West Don Lands area has tons of upside potential, with its proximity to established neighbourhoods. There is also a proposed downtown relief subway line that will have a stop directly in front of Harris Square.

Harris Square

River City is one of the city's most anticipated new developments -- and it comes with pedigree. This multi-part project is helmed by developer Urban Capital Property Group (Boutique Condos, Smarthouse), and resides in the revitalized West Don Lands neighbourhood. Once home to the Unilever factory and a hodge podge of industrial buildings and film studios, this area of Toronto is quickly becoming one of the most talked about redevelopments, with commercial developer First Gulf planning a massive overhaul. The proposed plan: 10 million square feet of office space, and 2 millions square feet of retail space. This could bring more than 50,000 workers to this area.

Harris Square is River City's fourth and final phase. This 13-storey boutique condo is designed by Montreal firm Saucier + Perrotte Architects, in conjunction with Toronto's ZAS Architects. Like its predecessors, Harris Square is architecturally unique, with coloured and smoked glass offset by a concrete structure. This modern and clean aesthetic is a direct response to the area's brownfield, post industrial history.

This is Your (Revitalized) City

In 2006, Waterfront Toronto took over the West Don Lands project, drafting definitive plans and funding for the site. Now the area is experiencing an exciting renaissance, and massive steps towards redevelopment have been made. A flood protection landform has been built to protect the area from Don River flooding. Don River Park and the highly innovative Underpass Park are complete.

The West Don Lands area has tons of upside potential, with its proximity to established neighbourhoods like Corktown, the Distillery District, and Riverside/Leslieville. There is also a proposed downtown relief subway line that will have a stop directly in front of Harris Square, as well as the SmartTrack regional rail plan that would also serve this area. This project is poised to bring over 1,000 new residential units to this often overlooked part of the city, and is set to be the crown jewel of the West Don Lands Area.

Why We Love Harris Square: The Location

As its name suggests, Harris Square will be located at Old Eastern Avenue and Lawren Harris Square. This Moss Park neighbourhood boasts a transit score of 100, and a walk score of 87 for its proximity to the Distillery District, Leslieville, Corktown, and the historic St. Lawrence Market.

The pretty Corktown Commons is mere steps away, while further north, King and Queen East provide ample food and entertainment possibilities. George Brown College, Ryerson University and the St. George campus for the University of Toronto are all nearby.
With city-wide plans to expand on transit, office, and retail space, West Don Lands is gearing up to be one of the city's best neighbourhoods.

Why We Love Harris Square: The Buzz

When it comes to East Harbour, the development has already sparked interest from a number of "some of the world's most impressive names" in business. Downtown isn't just for the big banks anymore, and a diverse array of employers, including media and tech companies, want to be in the city.

Toronto is competing with other major cities for corporate offices, as well as the "best and the brightest" of a workforce that has been educated at Toronto's top-ranked schools. "We don't want them going down to San Francisco and L.A. and we want to attract their employers to our city."
