Beginning as a farming town, Scarborough Junction began to become industrialized when The Grand Trunk Railway came into the area in 1856 — no, not the 70s rock band known as Grand Funk Railroad. After world war II, this area was turned into a suburb, and the modern day neighbourhood took shape.
Danforth Rd and St. Clair Ave E cut through Scarborough Junction, and it’s there that you’ll find most of businesses in the area — restaurants, fast food chains, service based businesses, and retail stores. The neighbourhood has everything a family could need; schools, daycares, recreation centres and athletic clubs. This location is ideal for small families, as 3 bedrooms condos for sale in Scarborough Junction have significantly lower prices tags than those in downtown Toronto.
Condo buyers have plenty of choice here, with close to 2 dozen buildings in the neighbourhood — high-rises, mid-rises, and townhomes. There’s also a decent mix of new and old buildings, so if you’re looking into Scarborough Junction condos for sale and want a flashy new-build, you can find it in buildings like Imagine Condos, just as you can find an older building with larger floor plans at Greystone Walk I Condos.
Another reason to buy a condo in Scarborough Junction is that it’s a commuter friendly neighbourhood; Scarborough GO is on the southern end of the neighbourhood and Kennedy GO and Kennedy Subway Station are on the northern boundary, perfect for those who commute via public transit.
