Scarborough Junction is a sprawling neighbourhood, that’s home to a diverse population. While primarily a residential area, there is commercial space on the south side of the neighbourhood, providing residents with access to shopping and dining.
It’s not just the population which is diverse here — housing options are equally varied. On residential streets you’ll find a mix of world war II style homes, bungalows, semi detached houses, apartment buildings, and a reasonable selection of Scarborough Junction condos. A lack of sidewalks in residential areas gives the neighbourhood an old world feel, and mature trees offer plenty of shade from the sun.
Nature lovers have a wealth of green spaces to enjoy — the most noteworthy being Saint Clair Ravine Park, which has meandering walking trails, woodlands, and views of Massey Creek. There are several recreation centres and athletic clubs for children — hockey arenas, baseball diamonds, soccer pitches, playgrounds, and splash pads. Parents have many schools to choose from for their children, from primary to senior high.
Most businesses in the area are situated on Danforth and St. Clair Avenue — there are family restaurants like Wimpy's Diner, car dealerships, auto repair shops, tech stores, and a variety of businesses offering specialized services.
Scarborough Junction condos can be found in high-rise mid-rise buildings, and townhomes. While the neighbourhood can’t match the excitement of trendy neighbourhoods in downtown Toronto, Scarborough Junction condos have great value and are well below the price per square foot of Toronto condos for sale in more urban areas.
Floor plans are consistent with other buildings in the city — Imagine Condos has suites sizes that range from 400 square feet to 915, and suite sizes generally range from around 500 square feet to just over 1300 in other buildings in the area. And for buyers who are concerned about privacy, units at Sedona Foxridge Townhomes offer a living experience that’s more in-line with a house.
Most Scarborough Junction condos are located on Danforth or Kennedy Road, placing residents near restaurants and transit lines. You’ll get the usual building amenities here — gyms, rooftop decks, and party rooms in condos, and limited extras in townhomes.
Scarborough Junction is somewhat walkable — condo owners will likely find it possible to run errands on foot, but those on residential streets might need a vehicle or transit to get things done. For those requiring public transit, there’s easy access throughout the neighbourhood, with buses on all major roads, and a GO station and subway station on Eglinton Avenue.
Drivers have Kingston Road to the south and the Don Valley Parkway to the west, making it easy to avoid most city traffic on their commute.
