New in Toronto real estate: Residences at the Hunt Club

Posted by Derek Flack / July 4, 2014

Residences at Hunt ClubThe Residences at Hunt Club is a new condo development on Kingston Road, sitting atop the prestigious golf club of the same name. With excellent views of Lake Ontario to the south, this midsize building bills itself as a luxury option for those who are swayed by such things. The development is located just to the east of Kingston & Co. condos, and is further evidence that this neighbourhood is slated for intensification. And why not? The lake is a major draw, but so too are the various trails around the nearby Scarborough Bluffs, the proximity of the Beaches neighbourhood, and the still relatively low prices. I say relative because the penthouse units here break the million dollar mark, so there's nothing budget about this building.

Residences Hunt ClubTHE VERDICT

It's still a bit early to offer a definitive verdict on this development as a number of details regarding unit sizes and floor plans have yet to be released, but I'll repeat what I said about the neighbouring Kingston & Co. project: Toronto could use more of these mid-scale developments, especially in neighbourhoods that have previously lacked density. While it strikes me that the sales pitch linking the project to the golf club that it happens to be located next to is a bit over the top, the renderings suggest that the upper units are luxurious indeed.

I also like the degree to which the various terraces and stacked levels on the upper storeys lessen the impact of the structure. It's an attractive looking building that won't dominate what is primarily a low rise neighbourhood -- at least for now.

It'll be interesting to see if there are any takers considering the price was announced but not sq ft and who their target customers would be. It's been given a luxurious feel but the area doesn't necessarily cater perfectly to singles and couples. Based on the marketing around the golf course, I would venture to guess it might target those retired and golf club members? If that is the case then the size of each condo needs to be larger, aka, start at 650 sq ft for 1 bedroom and 900 sq ft or more for 2 bedrooms. Maintenance fees could also get expensive in a small condo building such as this with seemingly ample amenities and only 75 units.

Nice building, but is it going to be over priced?

Great location at the edge of the Beach community, some of those suites will have spectacular views. I love the size of the upper patios.
