Before Scoop was even a glimmer in the eyes of Graywood’s development team, they knew that there was something special about the West St. Clair West neighbourhood.
It had a vibe, an energy bubbling under the surface and it needed to be uncovered thoughtfully. “I came to the area before we purchased the land,” said Adidharma Purnomo, Vice President, Development Project Management and the team lead on Scoop. “I walked around during the weekend. During the day. During the night. I talked to the residents, shop owners and visited restaurants.”
What Purnomo found was this particular stretch between Caledonia and Old Weston Road was truly special. It’s warm; it has a character, that unique quality you find in some of Toronto’s greatest neighbourhoods. “West St. Clair West has all the elements of an emerging neighbourhood, including a short ride to the subway station.”
There’s also the new library, with an eye popping contemporary design; there’s a massive, pubic park, great schools and a community centre with a swimming pool, amazing waterslides and basketball courts. This is Scoop: a residence built specifically to its context with a modern scale and emphasis on crafting livable spaces.
“We’re not trying to bring downtown to West St. Clair West,” says Purnomo. “We respect what is already here and want to help you be a part of its great future.”
says Stephen Price, President and CEO of Graywood Developments.
When it comes to Scoop, Graywood and Price are thrilled by the reception from local businesses and residents from the community. “We take our responsibility to all the stakeholders very seriously. That includes the community, as well as our partners and purchasers. Graywood draws on our considerable resources and financial track record to realize our vision for Scoop.
Toronto tends to develop in pockets and certain areas become attractive to large groups of people, Price explains. “Our architect and designers have risen to the challenge we’ve put out before them, delivering a first-class living environment that will stand the test of time.”
“Adidharma and our entire in-house team have worked tirelessly to deliver a building that sets a new standard for West St. Clair West,” says Price. “This building has been conceived with tremendous passion, and we are excited by the results.”
