Graywood Developments is doubling down on the stretch of St. Clair Avenue West between Caledonia and Old Weston roads. With shovels in the ground on its sold-out SCOOP project, the developer has unveiled plans for another mid-rise condo in the neighbourhood.
“Cities like Toronto develop in pockets, and this stretch of St. Clair from Old Weston Road to Caledonia was primed for smart, community-oriented developments,” said Stephen Price, president and CEO of Graywood Developments. “With SCOOP we introduced a new form to the area, inviting purchasers to come see the changes taking place.”
Substantial renovations are currently underway at the local Toronto Public Library branch and the corner of Old Weston Road and St. Clair Avenue West has been slated as the future site of a Go Station and Smart Track Station.
The 12-storey, 268-unit SCOUT will become a sister building, rather than a second phase, to the six-storey, 72-unit SCOOP on St. Clair Avenue West.
“We’re delivering more residences and working with a new set of materials,” said Adidharma Purnomo, vice president, development project management, Graywood Developments. “We’ve evolved the form to reflect the ambitions of the community.”
SCOUT will reunite the team behind SCOOP, which included SMV Architects and TACT Design.
“A glass box wouldn’t really suit the area, so we aimed for a warehouse aesthetic with a focus on masonry,” said Dan Cowling, partner, SMV Architects.
“Given the scale of the building the spaces will be larger and more open,” added Michael Krus, designer, TACT Design. “We’re still connecting the amenities with the lobby experience, but we’re using glazing to separate the individual spaces.”
SCOUT will feature layouts of one and two bedrooms, plus dens, in spans of 410 square feet to 1,260 square feet. Units will start in the $400,000s when sales launch this fall.
