This is a new condo project with enviable transit and shopping access in the heart of Scarborough City Centre.
1710 Ellesmere Road Condos is a new high-rise condominium development by Tridel in Scarborough. These five gleaming residential towers with a total of 2,392 residential units are located at 1710 Ellesmere Rd, steps from the corner of McCowan Rd and Ellesmere Rd.
This development will offer vast outdoor amenities, including rooftop terraces and new public parks. Residents will also be near covetable neighbourhood amenities, like subway stations, a gigantic mall, and two post-secondary schools.
1710 Ellesmere Road Condos will feature a collection of soaring towers with a staggered pattern of horizontal and vertical lines creating a sense of visual play. Featuring a timeless blue and white colour palette, this development will bring to life five condo towers with podiums that offer plenty of thoughtfully selected indoor and outdoor amenities.
The first building block at the site’s north end will feature two high-rise towers standing 49- and 53-storeys high, sharing an enormous 6-storey podium and offering 1,060 condo units. The second block at the site’s southeast corner will contain another two high-rise towers 45- and 49-storeys high, sharing another 6-storey podium and offering 1,052 condo units.
The third block will feature a 28-storey building with a 7-storey podium and 280 condo units (30% of which will be affordable rental units and 70% market-rate rental units), plus office space, a coffee shop, and a lobby/lounge. This entire development will be built in phases, starting with the first and third blocks before completing the second block.
Overall, 2,392 new units will be built in various sizes — 2 townhouses, 82 studios, 1,476 one-bedroom, 610 two-bedroom, and 222 three-bedroom suites — suitable for a dynamic, mixed community of individuals and families. Details about features and finishes are TBA, but based on previous projects by this developer, we can expect well-appointed suites with modern details and spacious layouts.
Residents can enjoy a wide range of life-enhancing amenities on site. Podium-top terraces will feature playgrounds, bocce courts, BBQ areas, plenty of seating, and more. Additionally, two public parks at the centre of the condo tower arrangement will offer the community nearly 14,000 sq. ft of rejuvenating green space and include an outdoor amphitheatre, splash pad, and playground.
The entire complex of condo buildings will contain 1,509 parking spaces (1,368 residential and 141 visitors) and 1,794 bike spaces (1,627 long-term and 167 short-term) primarily located in underground parking garages. Residents can choose between private vehicles or the ample transit options in the neighbourhood.
