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.
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.
The living and dining areas merge seamlessly, giving residents more flexibility when it comes to furniture selection.
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.
Since the building meets LEED Gold standards, all appliances are Energy Star Certified.
- A stainless-steel European fridge, stove, microwave, and range hood
- A washer and dryer
Master Bedroom & Bath
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.
The ensuite bathroom is gorgeous, with crisp contours, subdued colours, and reflective surfaces.
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.
Furthermore, two massive floor-to-ceiling glass panels bathe the room in natural sunlight.
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.
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.
Best of all, it’s got two spectacular panoramas: one of Corktown, and the other of downtown Toronto.

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.
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.”
