Urban Capital recently launched these mindboggling renderings of the River City Phase Three (RC3). The $300 million condo project near Eastern Avenue and King Street along the Don River is transforming the former industrial wasteland into a new residential neighbourhood. It's a first development for the area and nearby to a newly constructed Athletes Village when Toronto hosts the Pan-Am Summer Games. Phase One of the mega project includes two buildings with 350 residential units while Phase Two features 248 units, a single building appearing as three 12-storey mini glass towers connected by a bridge. The third phase is a 28-storey tower, extreme architecture with its textured cube visual design by Saucier & Perrotte Architects. Amenities are large for this development with an outdoor green space, a gold-tiled swimming pool (sorry, no pool photos yet) and a kids play room.

↑ The Alter Condos is a new 33-storey tower at Church Street, south of Carlton, and a funky design for the neighbourhood by architectsAlliance. The units are cheap and cheerful, ranging from 409 to 832 square feet and prices starting from $232,000. Watch for an outdoor infinity pool, an aqua spa and a party clubhouse area. The project is estimated to be completed fall 2017.

↑ The Core Condos at Shuter and Dalhousie Streets is a 24-storey development with a yellow and blue coloured podium and 220 suites. Designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, the balconies cut through the centre of the building creating a very striking visual effect and making it appear like two separate towers. The condo is expected to be completed in 2017.

Garrison Point Condos in Fort York is supposed to be a family-oriented development, encouraging people to move their kids downtown. It's a massive development with five buildings, both residential and commercial, ranging from 23 to 49-storeys high. There is plenty of green space for the kiddies with a pedestrian promenade connecting to a public park and an Olympic sized swimming pool. The developer even made this family-friendly commercial emphasizing that "kids hate the suburbs," (Note: some kids do like the 'burbs). The development is expected to be completed in 2017.
