Spanning 11 acres on a site just east of the rapid transit station and Scarborough Town Centre, 675 Progress Avenue takes advantage of prime shopping, transit, employment opportunities and an area undergoing a development boom. This is a four-tower condominium proposal in the Scarborough City Centre neighbourhood.
The developer and the occupancy date for this project have yet to be released, so keep an eye on our page for updates.
Combining contemporary towers, retail and office space, a public park and a brand-new street network, this Scarborough condominium will essentially be a self-sufficient community, adding 1,371 units to a region that’s poised to be a major growth centre.
Situated just northeast of the Ellesmere and McCowan intersection, this parcel of land sits in the heart of Scarborough. The 11-acre site is proposed to be divided into four development blocks, plus a block in the centre of the project that will be used as a public park.
The first phase of 675 Progress Avenue condominium will involve blocks one and two, which both sit on the north part of the site, fronting onto Progress Avenue. Block one proposes two towers, standing 40 and 49 storeys with 784 units, while block two proposes another two towers, standing 34 and 22 storeys with a combined 587 units. The towers will share two podiums, housing retail, offices and a parking garage.
In total, the development will add a massive 130,000 square feet of office space and 9,600 square feet of retail space, making a true mixed-use community. Amongst the four towers, 252 studio units will be allocated, along with 869 one-bedroom, 209 two-bedroom and 41 three-bedroom layouts, an excellent range for the wide variety of residents who are attracted to the area.
Almost 32,000 square feet of indoor amenity space and almost 36,000 of outdoor amenity space will be included in the community, well above the minimum requirements put in place by the city. The remaining blocks will be developed at a later date, so details have not been released for those portions yet.
Location & Neighbourhood
New condominiums in Scarborough have really been making an impact, especially in this stretch around the shopping centre. It’s an area the city’s Official Plan has designated as an “employment district,” one of the categories the city believes can best accommodate growth in the coming years.
Certainly there’s been several projects proposed or recently completed for the neighbourhood, most of which are large-scale and combine residential towers with commercial space, community resources and parkland. We think this is set to become one of the east end’s most desirable place to live, work and play.
The sizeable Scarborough Town Centre serves as the region’s main shopping hub and also houses a station on the LRT, seamlessly connecting you with the city’s transit system. It houses a variety of big-brand retailers and a recently-overhauled dining atrium, along with a Cineplex Cinemas and a GoodLife Fitness centre; everything you need for a complete community.
Drivers will appreciate access to the 401, which provides access across the region, while families love the district’s selection of schools and parkland. In fact, on many occasions Scarborough has been called one of the leafiest parts of the GTA.
