Near the northern limits of Toronto is the site for Celsius Condos, a new development by Shiu Pong Developments. Nestled between North York Centre and Finch stations, to location will appeal to someone who wants a suburban feel, but still wants to be close to the city via the subway. Celsius will consist of an eighteen-storey tower and surrounding townhomes at the base, for those looking for more home-style living. The development replaces mature trees and aging suburban bungalows which were knocked down in 2011.
