Joining a growing stretch in this east end pocket, this project is designed as a contemporary mid-rise that sits across the street from the prestigious Hunt Club. 1376 Kingston Road is a pre-construction condominium under development by Atria Development Corporation in Scarborough’s Birch Cliff neighbourhood.
With stunning views of both the golf course and Lake Ontario, the condo will feature a selection of spacious suites, with 70 percent expected to be allocated as two or three bedroom units suitable for family living.
This is a fantastic opportunity for investors who like the idea of being ahead of the trend and appreciate everything the leafy Scarborough area has to offer
This new condo project is proposed as an eight-storey mid-rise, with a partial ninth storey housing indoor and outdoor amenities. It’s expected to house only 50 units, for a condominium that has a friendly, intimate feel. The unit mix is proposed to include 2 bachelor units, 10 one-bedroom, 26 two-bedroom and 12 three-bedroom units, with a priority placed on larger suites that are suitable for growing families.
A selection of units will have access directly from street level, while the main lobby will be accessible directly from Kingston Road, providing a safe and animated streetscape. The condo will be designed in a way that “wraps” the corner of Kingston Road and Cornell Avenue in a unique and contemporary style.
A partial ninth floor is included in the design, which will house 1,100 square feet of indoor amenity space connected to a 889 square foot outdoor terrace, for breathtaking views of the adjacent Hunt Club and the sparkling Lake Ontario in the distance. In a move almost unheard of for new condo developments in Toronto, 50 parking spaces – one for each residential unit – will be included in an underground garage.
This Scarborough condo is designed to incorporate multiple step-backs, which not only helps maximize sunlight on the stretch, but provides larger-than-typical outdoor terraces for some of the two-storey penthouses which face the lake. A & Associates Architects will be handling the design, a firm with a portfolio of striking urban buildings across the globe.
Location & Neighbourhood
The site for this condo sits just east of Warden Avenue, on a growing stretch of Kingston Road. A handful of similar condominium buildings are under construction in the same area, indicating a major shift in housing trends for this east end region.
A selection of shopping and dining options line this part of the street, while a major shopping plaza is only minutes away. In addition, The Beaches, a busy neighbourhood full of shops, cafes and lifestyle amenities, is a short distance away, either by public transit or car.
Scarborough’s prestigious Hunt Club, which boasts a stunning golf course and social club is just across the street, likely to make this condo an extremely sought-after addition to the neighbourhood. In addition, the picturesque shores of Lake Ontario are just minutes away, a popular hideaway that offers breathtaking waterfront views all year-round.
Commuting into the heart of the city is easy from this location, either by bus or streetcar service, which travels frequently along Kingston Road, or by car. Scarborough is a popular place for both its proximity to the city, slightly lower price point and some of the exciting growth it’s being seeing over the last few years.
Several aging strip malls and underutilized lots in the region have been the site of either new condominiums or redevelopment proposals, all of which are helping the region to urbanize, rejuvenate and bring all the comforts and convenience of contemporary living.
