Bold architecture is coming to Kingston Road in Scarborough thanks to TAS, Main and Main Developments and First Capital Realty's Kingston&Co Condominiums. The new 10-storey, Teeple Architects-designed building will be built at on Kingston Rd just east of Victoria Park Avenue. This is the site of the now closed Alpine Hotel, a Birchcliffe neighbourhood fixture for almost 75 years, whose day had certainly come and gone.
Kingston&Co's terraced wedge shape means that the 140 units are made up from 72 different floor plans which range in size from 423 to 1,428 square feet and which come in one, two and three bedroom layouts with prices starting from the mid $200,000s. If any building comes close to having something for everyone, Kingston&Co would be it.
Residents of the development will have access to all of the typical condominium amenities, such as gym, yoga room, and indoor/outdoor entertaining spaces, while also enjoying rarer offerings like a car wash, a workshop and tool room, and even a dog washing station: the designers of Kingston&Co don't want you to have to give up on the things you love if you're moving from a house.
At Kingston&Co, your kitchen can still be as well stocked as if you had a backyard as the building also offers gardening plots, an increasingly popular feature in an age where we are thinking more about what we consume. Being able to grow some of your own vegetables means you don't have to give up your connection to the ground even if the views out your window now belie that fact.
Whatever you can't grow on the rooftop you'll only have to take steps to get, as Kingston&Co's ground level will feature shops and cafés, and you'll also be living within a couple blocks of many other walkable retailers and restauranteurs in the increasingly interesting Kingston Road Village. Large grocery stores and a mall are a short drive or bus ride north, where you'll also be able to hop on the subway and get anywhere in town quickly.
