St. Clair Village Bringing New Modern Homes to Earlscourt

While many areas of Toronto are seeing exclusively high-rise intensification, some of the city’s more human-scaled neighbourhoods are getting boosts in new housing that more closely conforms to the areas they revitalize. Where the Earlscourt and Corso Italia neighbourhoods meet, the former site of the Toronto District School Board’s Hughes Public School—sold in 2014 and demolished in 2016—is one such location getting a sensibly-scaled development that will bring a modern presence to the community without deviating from the community scale that adds to the local neighbourhood feel. The St Clair Village project by Frontdoor Developments Inc will bring 41 homes to Caledonia Road at Innes Avenue, and the project’s ongoing marketing is shedding new light on what awaits residents of the future development.

The new community will consist of three blocks of contemporary semi-detached homes lining the site’s three road frontages, which are to be common element condominium tenure. Designed by Hunt Design Associates Inc, the homes are to be built in five different designs that each feature a variation of a white brick, stone, glazing, and wood accent design language that will form a cohesive look throughout the site.

These five designs are named for the surrounding community’s Italian-Canadian culture and heritage with unit names like Caboto, Como, and Gondola, while also referencing the streets of the neighbourhood with plans named Caledonia and St Clair. The units all boast suite sizes in excess of 3,000 ft², capable of supporting the changing needs of families including the recent rise of home offices. These expansive interior spaces will be complemented by outdoor living spaces including generously-sized private backyards and balconies, as well as newly-announced rooftop patio spaces.

Inside, residents are to enjoy features such as electric fireplaces, staircases with natural oak treads, glass interior panel railings, luxury appointments like Miele appliances and quartz countertops, plus others that were highlighted in a previous article

Units at St Clair Village range in area from 3,005 to 3,040 ft², and are priced starting from $1,500,000. Residents of the community will be located in an area of the city that is seeing significant reinvestment and which is home to a range of parks, shops, restaurants, cafés, community centres, and is served by plenty of transit.
