As the new kid on the block at 505 Richmond Street West, Waterworks will stand as a 13-storey building featuring a bountiful food hall, 299 stylish city condos, Toronto’s newest fully-outfitted YMCA, all flanking the historic St. Andrew’s Playground, a neighbourhood oasis of mature trees, dating back to 1837.

As part of this evolution of the old St. Andrew’s Market, this is “The Tap” – a blog covering the Waterworks neighbourhood featuring its community members, businesses, local fare, music and much more!

The Tap gives you an inside look into this new city food hall to become the heart and soul of its dynamic neighbourhood; from the restaurants and retail stores to the thriving nightlife, to the people and the surrounding community.

This isn’t just another condo going up in the downtown area. Waterworks will be a beacon for the local hustling, bustling, innovators and mavericks frequenting one of Toronto’s oldest neighbourhood and THIS is how they will get tapped in.


Who are the players quarterbacking this momentous revitalization? MOD Developments Inc. and Woodcliffe Landmark Properties have come together to offer an artfully unique, industrially inspired, architectural mid-rise building that will redefine the genre of what you call home. Showcasing Diamond Schmitt’s advanced architectural capabilities, the residential suits will sit atop the heritage Waterworks Building in a terraced configuration – offering individually unique floor plans that consist of distinctive design characteristics from Cecconi Simone Interior Design.
