Perch Condominiums' Firmland project offers elevated perspective on life for less than you’d expect

Perched on the edge of a ravine overlooking Highland Creek off of Kingston Road, Perch Condominiums is one the first developments to help redefine what was once one of the most coveted areas of the city. A tour of the surrounding neighbourhoods reveals stately homes that boast ravine-side locations. This area is now primed for a new take on life – one that satisfies a balance between urban amenities and natural surroundings.

Where past meets present

Properties of this calibre are rare within the city limits. Located in the east end of Scarborough, residents will enjoy easy access to the downtown core, as well as to Hwy. 401. “This is a beautiful pocket of nature,” says Michoel Klugmann, president of Firmland Group of Companies. “I really enjoy building projects where we can do something new and fresh, and inspire others to follow. We expect that there will be a tremendous growth spurt coming to this neighbourhood, along with increasing values.”

Because of its proximity to Lake Ontario, Kingston Road was the primary route that people used to travel when coming into Toronto from eastern settlements. It’s still dotted with attractions and retains an inherent beauty as well as a significant historical appeal. Klugmann is confident that this area is prepared for a tasteful update, while preserving its environmental attributes.

Forever views

With the project backing onto Highland Creek and Colonel Danforth Park, mother nature is on full display with the buds of spring, the abundance of summer, the foliage of fall and a snow-covered woodland in the winter. “These stunning views and vistas will attract those with vision,” says Klugmann. “It will also draw those who recognize a luxurious development, which is expected to increase in value as other nearby projects come to market.”

Positioned for success

Developed by Firmland and designed by Core Architects Inc., Perch complements the surrounding landscape by following the contours of the treeline that edge the ravine. Its curvilinear shape is accentuated with angular balconies. The minimalist facade will house 168 suites over 12 storeys, and is truly impressive from all angles.

Inside, award-winning design firm, Cecconi Simone, has taken an intimate approach to each suite, as well as to the shared common areas. By blending an organic mix of natural stone, fabrics and textures, a casual sophistication has been achieved. Chef-inspired kitchens, spa-like bathrooms and efficient office nooks or dens make home life all the more liveable.

Land Art Design is responsible for intermingling the exterior landscape of Perch with the natural greenspace around it. To augment this park-like setting, there’s a reading patio for residents to enjoy, as well as an outdoor exercise area, a kids’ play area and pet area. The rooftop terrace will include a dining space and water features, as well as barbecue and lounge areas.

Luxury and location

One- to three-bedroom suites are priced from the high $400,000s to more than $1 million. Each interior layout will be carefully curated to include the finest finishes for a taste of luxury that is seldom found in homes of this price point.

Extensive building amenities have been considered for the benefit of all residents. Beautiful Wi-Fi, fireside and lobby lounges are great for relaxing. For those who require more room for hobbies and projects, work rooms are available (including a karaoke room), as well as a fitness centre, yoga studio, pet spa and wine tasting area.

Perch will be located in an already established community that includes built-in conveniences. Easy access to TTC and GO Transit, as well as grocery stores, shops, restaurants, movie theatres and schools, are all part of the extended neighbourhood. Close by is the Scarborough campus of the University of Toronto, and Centennial College.

Built on a firm foundation

Firmland maintains its tradition as a multi-generational real estate developer. Founder Klugmann has an intimate knowledge of the Greater Toronto Area, along with the desired credentials that are necessary for creating some of the best residential communities in southern Ontario. Success stories include the acclaimed B.streets Condos at Bloor and Bathurst, and the Sonic Community at Don Mills and Eglinton.

Perch Condominiums is poised to become a distinctive landmark in an evolving residential area. This project will not only help preserve what is, but will also enhance all that it will become.

“This is the next happening area,” says Klugmann. “At Perch, we’re offering early entry to affordable luxury. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
