The River & Fifth Condos at 5 Defries complex will occupy an entire city block in Corktown, just south of the east side’s Regent Park neighbourhood. Corktown has historically been an industrial area, but over the past decade or so, it has been rapidly transforming into a hip and trendy residential district. In addition to purpose-built communities like River and Fifth Condos at 5 Defries, many new Corktown developments have repurposed existing buildings, giving it a distinctive mixed-use flavour that has been praised for its walkability and sustainability.
River and Fifth Condos is situated in the Corktown neighbourhood of downtown Toronto. Close to the large greenspaces of the Riverdale Farm and Corktown Common park.
