    Fieldgate Homes assembled the three sites from 670-690 Progress Avenue in Scarborough Town Centre back in December for $20.0m.

    It will be interesting to see if this week's revised transit plans for STC have any bearing on what gets proposed here.

    Scarborough Town Centre is finally moving again.. Lets see how much gets built. Makes me wonder if we would have been seeing just as much if the LRT was what was getting built.

    Eventually it would have. I would assume slightly lower quality with less demand in the end with dampened enthusiasm from developers and buyers alike. It'll be an easy sell now and thankfully we'll never have to find out. I hope we get some more creative tower proposals designs at some point. As Edward says bring it on

    Yeah, that depiction is impressive in its own right but still, looks fairly dull. Be nice to see at least the taller towers having a little more personality.

    It's a nice mix of low, mid and highrise. At street level it looks very promising, but I agree about the towers- we've seen these many times before and the eyes just glaze over.

    We have a front page story up to introduce the development and go over some of the numbers, and a new database file linked at the top of the page.
