Graywood Developments has started building the SCOUT Condos project in northwest Toronto’s West St. Clair neighbourhood.
The project, in conjunction with neighbouring SCOOP condos, is part of a transformation of the area including the recently renovated St. Cl;air/Silverthorn Toronto Public Library Branch and a new SmartTrack GO Station.
“When Graywood launched SCOOP Condos in the summer of 2017, it was the first new condominium project to hit this stretch of St. Clair West,” REMInetwork.com quoted Adidharma Purnomo, vice-president development at Graywood Developments, as saying. “Today, we’ve seen that a number of developers have followed our lead. SCOUT is poised to be a new landmark in the area.
“There’s a lot of optimism around this community and we believe there’s a lot of room for more smart, contextual developments to take place.”
The 269-unit, 12-storey mid-rise structure has been designed by SMV Architects. Both SCOUT and SCOOP incorporate ground-level retail services.
“Cities like Toronto develop in pockets, and this stretch of St. Clair from Old Weston Rd. to Caledonia was primed for smart, community-oriented developments,” Graywood’s CEO and president Stephen Price told REMI. “With SCOOP — and now SCOUT — we introduced a new form to the area, inviting purchasers to come see the changes taking place. We were thrilled with the reception.”
