The #1 spot goes to Pickering City Centre Block 1, located at 1355 Kingston Road. This stately project leads the downtown Pickering transformation by adding four new condominium developments. As the first phase and launch of the Pickering City Centre 55-acre master-planned community, Block 1 will add over 2,000 new residential units, over 110,000 square feet of amenities and 18,000 square feet of retail along the ground floor for easy pedestrian and resident accessibility.
This project site is incredibly convenient, scoring an impressive 91 walk score thanks to the adjacent Pickering GO Station transit hub. This station is also a bus transit terminus, which acts as a stop for Durham Region Transit and GO Transit bus routes, offering even greater transit access to the community. Motorists can enjoy easy proximity to Highway 401, less than 1 km away, which allows drivers to travel across and beyond Pickering quickly.
Pickering is amidst incredible growth as it sits in Durham, the second fastest-growing submarket in the GTA and looks to grow by over 6,000 new residents. The Pickering City Centre master-planned community is part of a mall revitalization spanning over 55 acres. This redevelopment includes the creation of 20 new mixed-use condominium developments, increased transit with the upcoming Durham-Scarborough BRT and new employment opportunities. Still, with all this growth, Durham is experiencing a significant condo shortage, meaning an opportunity such as this one will be in high demand – elevating Pickering City Centre into a central destination point and legitimate growth hub.
