There’s a transformation underway in the city of Guelph, and RiverHouse Condominiums is right in the midst of it. In a city where progress and growth is apparent everywhere, RiverHouse is central to the core of it—as well as the sights, sounds and scenery of attractive Downtown Guelph, where people certainly enjoy coming to shop, stroll, dine and attend theatre and events.

With sales already well over 60 per cent, RiverHouse has been deemed an overwhelming success. At a fall preview, plans were unveiled to introduce this much-awaited urban lifestyle to the city core and to young professionals and empty nesters who make up the majority of buyers. It’s THE place they want to live in the heart of this city on the move.

Guelph is no longer a university town—it’s a city of urban delights and now RiverHouse is among them. A vision of gracious living, it takes its place on the banks of the Speed River within easy reach of the city’s urban amenities. From this location, it will look out to the winding Speed River to the south and east, while to the north and west future residents will discover a plethora of pursuits, from a game at the Sleeman Centre to theatre and events at the River Run Centre. Begin or end the evening with elegant dining at a fine restaurant or casual fare at numerous cafes and bistros. And if you love nature, RiverHouse is just steps away from trails and pathways that line the river. The countryside is also close at hand where you’ll find farmers’ markets and miles of scenic trails for hiking, biking, picnics and more. For those on the go, RiverHouse is located across from the new transit hub with access to GO Train as well as bus and VIA Rail. City living has never been easier.

This 18-storey condo residence is the finest project to date by Tricar Group, one of southwestern Ontario’s leading builders of luxury condominiums. RiverHouse boasts 130 exquisitely appointed suites, including penthouse suites on the top two floors with expansive terraces and opulent living spaces offering the ultimate in luxury and scenic views. Smaller suites of 1,003 sq.ft. are tempered by larger suites offering two bedrooms and a den up to 1,819 sq.ft. that includes a 150-sq.ft. balcony. Prices range from the mid $200s to over $1 million.

At RiverHouse, there is no compromise. It’s luxury full steam ahead with standard finishes that are equally as spectacular with five-inch engineered hardwood, porcelain tiles in the kitchen, baths and halls, 1.25-inch granite in the kitchens and bathrooms, a tiled backsplash in the kitchen along with valance lights and potlights, and stainless steel appliances. There’s nothing to upgrade – it’s all right here and can be experienced in the onsite presentation centre in the old Quebec Street Mall at 55 Wyndham St. N.

Even though location, style and finishes are incentive enough, a decor package is being offered for a limited time that includes a fireplace with custom-milled bookshelves and a TV alcove.

An environmentally responsible builder, Tricar offers its LiveGreen Advantage– a remarkable package of Green features that include tri-sorter recycling bins, heat recovery ventilators, low VOC paints, programmable thermostats and humidistats, Energy Star certified appliances, low-flow bathroom fixtures, bicycle storage, electric car charging stations and more.

To address mind, body and spirit, all residents will become members of the onsite River Club offering an ultra-modern fitness and exercise room, an adjoining yoga studio, and an expansive outdoor terrace. Other magnificent indoor amenities include a multimedia theatre room, a library lounge with chic fireplace, billiards and card tables, and an elegantly appointed guest suite for overnight company.

With panoramic views of the river and the city and a lifestyle to match, RiverHouse is a new destination as the address of choice in downtown Guelph.
