Construction of SCOUT Condos in northwest Toronto is underway. The design will part from glass and focus instead on masonry and a warehouse aesthetic to reflect the neighbourhood of West St. Clair West.
Along with neighbouring SCOOP Condos, the Graywood Developments’ project will further revitalize the area where several transformations are now underway, including a new SmartTrack GO Station and the newly renovated St. Clair/Silverthorn Toronto Public Library Branch.
“When Graywood launched SCOOP Condos in the summer of 2017, it was the first new condominium project to hit this stretch of St. Clair West,” says Adidharma Purnomo, Vice-President Development at Graywood Developments. “Today, we’ve seen that a number of developers have followed our lead. SCOUT is poised to be a new landmark in the area. There’s a lot of optimism around this community and we believe there’s a lot of room for more smart, contextual developments to take place.”
Designed by SMV Architects with interiors by TACT Design, SCOUT is a 12-storey mid-rise that is distinct from its sister project, SCOOP. Comprised of 269 suites, SCOUT offers more residences and features a new set of materials, reflecting the ambition and evolution of the community.
Both projects will incorporate retail offerings along the ground level, creating a mixed-use experience where residents can access features that go beyond building amenities.
“Cities like Toronto develop in pockets, and this stretch of St. Clair from Old Weston Rd. to Caledonia was primed for smart, community-oriented developments,” says Stephen Price, president and CEO, Graywood Developments. “With SCOOP — and now SCOUT — we introduced a new form to the area, inviting purchasers to come see the changes taking place. We were thrilled with the reception.”
