A mid-rise condominium development on St. Clair Avenue West at Old Weston Road is one step closer to reality following a new planning submission to the City of Toronto. Graywood Developments' proposal dates back March 2017, and has been gradually evolving in the two years since. The initial submission for the SMV Architects-designed Scout Condos was followed by an early 2018 resubmission that responded to comments and concerns from a Design Review Panel appearance. Most recently, a resubmission for Site Plan Approval was tabled last month, introducing a series of minor revisions that bring the project closer to the start of construction.

Changes to the plans range from building stepbacks to technical revisions to internal systems. Despite this, the overall exterior aesthetic remains largely unchanged from the previous version's look.

The building's overall unit count has increased slightly in the latest submission, up to 269 from the previous 261, and offered in a mix of 139 one-bedroom units with average sizes of 562 ft², and 130 two-bedroom units with average sizes of 887 ft²

The unit mix caters to new families in accordance with Toronto Growing Up Case Guidelines, which stipulates a minimum 25% “large units”, 10% three-bedroom units, and 15% two-bedroom units. While the current plan proposes no three-bedroom layouts, planned two-bedroom+den layouts would be capable of being converted into three-bedroom plans.
