Situated just south of the 401, this sprawling Scarborough neighbourhood affords resident with easy access to green spaces, and convenient dining and shopping options close to home.
Woburn is one of those neighbourhood’s that you end up in, rather than aim for; that’s not a knock on the neighbourhood itself, rather it’s a reference to the fact that areas like Woburn tend to fly under the radar. As mentioned, Woburn has an abundance of greenery, with countless parks and playgrounds, and also recreation based attractions like Scarboro Golf and Country Club.
Woburn condos for rent are great for families — there are at least a dozen schools in the neighbourhood, and also plenty of daycares. Family-friendly restaurants can be found throughout the area, and there’s a nice mix of well known chains like McDonald’s and the Keg, and lesser known eateries such as Federick Restaurant and The Charcoal Kebab House.
Residents have strip malls like Cedarbrae Mall for their shopping needs, and the northern portion of the Woburn is comprised of commercial and industrial space, featuring retail stores and a variety of businesses. Plus, Scarborough Town Centre is a shopping mall that’s just west of McCowan Rd.
Do you love high-rise condos? Well, you had better love them if you’re going to rent a condo in Woburn, because that’s all you’ll find. Renters do get to pick between traditional high-rises, and modern high-rise towers — all of which have pools as part of their amenities.
Modern high-rise towers such as the 34-storey Ellipse - West Tower Condos, have desirable amenities, and brand new finishes; suite sizes are comparable to other modern properties throughout the GTA. Traditional towers like The Residences at The Consilium I offer fewer amenities, but as a bonus, suite sizes are generous.
Woburn condos for rent come at varying price points — however, you’ll save some money on the cost of rent here for 2 and 3 bedroom units compared to high demand neighbourhoods in downtown Toronto.
Most of the condos for rent in Woburn are found in the north end of the neighbourhood, near restaurants and retail stores — which makes them pedestrian friendly. Residents have a multitude of bus routes for getting around their neighbourhood, and for longer trips, McCowan Station is on the western boundary for subway service.
Car owners have a great starting point for their morning commute, and can go north on Markham Rd for the nearest 401 on-ramp.
