“[A] pure vision of liberated design” – The Globe & Mail

170 Bayview Avenue, also known as River City 3, is an award-winning neighborhood in Toronto’s East End.

Part of a 4-Phase development, the project consists of 1,110 loft-style condos, ground-level retail, and family-friendly townhouses.

The condo is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certificated, emphasizing health, livability and sustainability.

Because of these values, residents have access to amenities like gorgeous green-spaces, a 2000 sq. ft. fitness facility, and even charge stations for electric vehicles.

Plus its minutes from downtown Toronto, so food, shopping, and entertainment are always close by.

The Space

Kitchen and living room view showing almost 800 square feet of space.

Residents can look forward to almost 800 square feet of space.

170 Bayview Avenue is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit with sensational views of downtown Toronto.

The condo has an open-concept kitchen, living, and dining room, while the 2 bedrooms have a split-layout for greater privacy.

Stylistically, the unit combines industrial and modern elements.

We can see the former in the exposed piping and rugged concrete, and the latter in the laminate floors and slick appliances.

170 Bayview Unit 605 is urban yet luxurious.

The living and dining areas merge seamlessly, giving residents more flexibility when it comes to furniture selection.

This photo shows the living and dining rooms and also a shot of the balcony.

A sofa against the back wall; a dining table opposite the kitchen—the décor possibilities are endless.

The Kitchen

170 Bayview’s kitchen is sleek, sexy and sophisticated.

Contrasting black and white cabinets instantly grab our attention, while smooth stone countertops, a glassy gray back-splash, and gleaming chrome faucet exude a magical shimmer.

Lovely picture of kitchen and its cabinets, drawers, appliances and faucet.

Kitchens don’t get any more beautiful than this.

Since the building meets LEED Gold standards, all appliances are Energy Star Certified.

These include:

  • A stainless-steel European fridge, stove, microwave, and range hood
  • A washer and dryer

Master Bedroom & Bath

Window and balcony view from master bedroom.

This master bedroom comes with a view.

170 Bayview has two bedrooms, making it ideal for couples as well as families.

The master bedroom has laminate floors, direct balcony access, and a 3-piece ensuite washroom.

It’s also separated from the other rooms by a sliding door, giving homeowners complete privacy.

In this photo, we see the master bedroom with door open and can see the flow from one room to another.

Shutting the sliding door provides personal space, while keeping it open maintains flow.

The ensuite bathroom is gorgeous, with crisp contours, subdued colours, and reflective surfaces.

Lovely photo of master bath and tub, sink, and more.

A medicine cabinet plus two drawers provide ample storage for personal items.

The washroom also comes with a tub, shower and under-cabinet lighting.

Second Bedroom & Washroom

The second bedroom boasts laminate floors, a large closet, and opens onto the balcony.

First pic of second bedroom and we see its so bright with light due to windows.

High-ceilings and a glass door give this room a sense of greater space.

Furthermore, two massive floor-to-ceiling glass panels bathe the room in natural sunlight.

Another photo of the bedroom and its windows from another side.

For most condos, a second bedroom with two large windows is rare.

170 Bayview also has two bathrooms. While the second one isn’t quite as big, it’s still very luxurious.

For example, it uses mixed materials like wood, glass, ceramic and stone to great effect.

Another bathroom pic, and this one is of second bathroom. It's less in size, but it's rather beautiful with its use of wood and colour. Also, the layout is rather striking.

Have you ever seen a walk-in shower with wooden panels?

In addition to aesthetics, the bathroom has more functional elements.

You’ll find a medicine cabinet and drawers for storage, an energy-efficient faucet, a dual-flush toilet, and under-cabinet lighting.


What makes River City 3’s balcony so remarkable is that it runs continuously from end of the condo to another.

It’s also wide, with transparent glass-panels for railings, and can be accessed from either bedroom.

Here we see the balcony and view of streets. It's very wide and also has glass rails.

Glass windows means residents can enjoy the view from inside as well as out.

Best of all, it’s got two spectacular panoramas: one of Corktown, and the other of downtown Toronto.

Another view of the balcony and this one is rather beautiful. We can see an almost epic shot of the CN Tower.

This extra-long balcony comes with an extraordinary view of the Toronto skyline.

About Corktown

View of Corktown and buildings from high up.

There’s an abundance of greenery all around.

Corktown maybe one of Toronto’s oldest neighbourhoods, but it’s experiencing an urban revival.

According to the Toronto Star: “…dozens of new businesses are popping up. Bars, coffee shops, furniture stores — they’re all setting up shop in this downtown community.”

That means residents of 170 Bayview have access to amazing new restaurants, retail, nightlife, theatres and other venues.

Picture of pizza cut into slices; it looks rather delicious.

Enjoy Italian cuisine at Fusilli Ristorante, a 5-minute walk from River City.

Another advantage of living at 170 Bayview is that everything is within walking distance.

This includes parks, groceries, pharmacies, galleries, and even teddy-bear themed cafes like Teddy Story.

So what’s behind this rebirth? Much of it is due to the Pan Am Games and new condo developments like River City.

Because of an influx of new condos, Corktown is now considered “prime land.”

The WOW Factor

Finally, we have a photo of the Toronto skyline.

The view from 170 Bayview’s balcony is truly epic.
