Mid-rise developments continue to pop up along Toronto's walkable, retail-lined Avenues, after being identified by the City as appropriate locations for intensification. Hillcrest Village lies on St. Clair Avenue West, one of the thoroughfares highlighted in the new framework, and will soon be home to Rockport Group's The Nest; a 9-storey, 123-unit boutique condominium with architecture by RAW Design.
The development will rise on a stretch of St. Clair with a burgeoning restaurant and retail scene, including the acclaimed barbecue eatery, The Stockyards, located just a few blocks down the road to the east, while the similarly named Stockyards Shopping Centre recently opening a few kilometres down the road to the west. Everything east or west can be reached quickly via the rebuilt St. Clair streetcar in its own mid-street right-of-way, a piece of transit infrastructure that is leading to the rejuvenation of the whole street, including The Nest itself.
Located up above the Davenport Road escarpment, residents of the Nest will have great views over the leafy-green neighbourhoods to the south, ending with the sparkling lights of Downtown Toronto skyscrapers in the distance. Residents will also enjoy a suite of amenities designed by aclaimed II By IV, including a party room and a landscaped roof deck.
The sales centre for The Nest is now open at 784 St Clair Ave West, just west of Arlington on the north side of the street, and those interested in purchasing at the development are encouraged to stop by for a better idea of what The Nest has to offer.
