Top 5 Reasons to Invest in Perch Condos.
Perch Condos will be located at 4696 Kingston Road, overlooking Colonel Danforth Park, a green space with nature trails through one of the GTA’s many distinct ravines. Follow the creek west, and residents will soon arrive at Morningside Park, a lovely, large natural park in the heart of Scarborough. Enjoy bike trails, fire pits, outdoor table tennis, picnic sites and a splash pad among many other facilities. This is a gorgeous spot to take in a summer day, and even spot the fall salmon run up Highland Creek.
Sitting in the West Hill neighbourhood of Scarborough, Perch will be among a new generation of condos rising in this area. A concerted effort to densify and strengthen this community has led to a great deal of exciting development, which makes for healthy investment. This is a location on the eastern edge of Scarborough that is still quite connected to Downtown thanks to GO transit and the extended TTC lines.
There are many institutions nearby, including Scarborough Town Centre, University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, and the Centennial College Morningside Campus, which all together make this neighbourhood an increasingly attractive place for students and young professionals.
Just 20 minutes south-west, residents will find the famous Scarborough Bluffs, a stretch of gorgeous escarpment on the eastern beaches of Toronto. The Scarborough Bluffs were formed by a natural process of wind and water erosion over 12,000 years ago. Today, they make for a fantastic series of parks and green spaces with stellar views and dramatic cliff sides.
Parents will be happy to know the neighbourhood is full of great schools. Joseph Brant Public School, St. Martin de Porres Catholic School, Guildwood Village Montessori and many more all surround Perch within a short walk.
Just down the road, residents will find a number of staple local amenities, Shoppers Drug Mart, Dollarama, Food Basics, LCBO and a Starbucks are all just a few blocks away.
Perch Condos will be a unique building. The first five floors will feature a dark brown neutral brick with large balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. The remaining floors will continue to have floor-to-ceiling windows, but will feature white spandrel panels. As the building rises, the floors will incorporate a “stepped-back” design that will cause each floor to further recede from the street. This keeps the building from feeling too imposing and allows for terraces.
The effect is that the building has a very unique shape – like two buildings on top of each other. From renders this building has a stylish, eye-catching look.
On the inside, the stylish aesthetic continues with a gorgeous entryway with a concierge and a lounge.
Buyers can expect a total of 168 residential units ranging in size. This will include 17 one-bedroom units, 84 one-bedroom-plus-den units, 23 two-bedroom units, 28 two-bedroom-plus-den units, 11 three-bedroom units, and 5 townhomes next to the main building.
Underground, there will be 4 levels of parking for residents, visitors and 128 bicycle parking spaces. Residents will also be able to rent or buy storage lockers in the building, with 261 lockers available.
Specific information about exact shared amenities have not yet been released, but with 5500 square-feet and 4300 square-feet of outdoor space set aside by the developer, we’re expecting many high-quality amenities to enjoy.

Scarborough is directly connected to the rest of Toronto by the world-class TTC transit system. Along with extensive bus line grids, Scarborough is at the eastern terminus of Line 2 Bloor-Danforth, with stations Victoria Park, Warden, and Kennedy. Further, Line 3 Scarborough continues on throughout the borough, running north and east towards Scarborough City Centre. Metrolinx, the Ontario-owned parent company of the TTC, plans to extend this line within the next decade, and a new Light Rail Transit line is currently in construction, with plans for connections to Kennedy Station. With many bus lines and stops nearby along Lawrence avenue, transit in the area will be easy, since connections to TTC stops will be relatively simple.
Perch condo residents will find their two local GO stations, Guildwood GO and Rouge Hill GO are both less than ten minutes away, making for simple commutes into the city. Alternatively, residents can connect to McCowan TTC station as well, less than ten minutes away.
Over the next decade, transit connections in Scarborough are only expected to improve, with the city pledging new tracks as part of the Scarborough Subway Expansion Project.
Further, residents will also find Perch to be conveniently located for cars as well. Very close to Highway 404, as well as the Don Valley Parkway, Perch is in an excellent location for cross-city travel, as well as to make highway connections and commutes into the city, and to take trips all across southern ontario.
