When Platform Condos launched their pre-construction sales in 2017, it was a sold out success. Recognizing the lack of condo inventory along Toronto’s east end, investors were quick to pounce at the opportunity.

Amenities include a gym, large outdoor terrace with BBQs and firepits, lounge with chef’s kitchen, party room, and games room. If you’re not entertained enough at home, hit up the vibrant Danforth stretch, one of Toronto’s friendliest neighbourhoods. The location is has many of the best restaurants, pubs, shops and essentials.

Taking shape alongside Adelaide Street East and Lower River Street is the final condo of the River City community, Harris Square. This boutique residence brings the design expertise of Saucier + Perrotte Architects for what they proclaim to be the most design forward residential development in Toronto, setting a new standard for condo design.

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. Condo suites range from 359 square foot studios to 1,780 square foot three bedroom plus dens.

Harris Square is also a stone’s throw away from the future East Harbour development which will see 50,000+ new jobs and a huge new transit hub for Toronto’s east core.
