Property investors should keep their eye on the Eglinton Avenue West corridor. Thanks to the new LRT line coming to the major thoroughfare, new projects such as Silverthorn Heights are adding density and new housing options to the area.

A collection of 43 residences near Keele Street and Eglinton Avenue West, the Icon Homes undertaking is just south of the new Eglinton LRT line. The location at 55 Ypres Road is actually the former Silverthorn Public School site – new plots of land in Toronto are hard to come by, after all!

As mid-rise housing along Eglinton continues to grow, owners of homes at Silverthorn Heights will be in a unique position as the singles and semis will be at home on lots up to 158′ feet deep, a rarity for new mid-town properties. Though Eglinton is close by, residents will be able to enjoy the quiet of a unique, low-rise streetscape.

Its an opportunity to own a new property in an established part of Toronto. There’s no need to move outside of the city if you’re looking for a new home with 9-foot ceilings, stone and brick elevations, and walk-out basements.

So many new homes are located in brand new neighbourhoods. But living at Silverthorn Heights means there’s no waiting for amenities – everything you need is just down the street. Aside from transit along Keele and the new LRT coming to Eglinton, commuters will surely enjoy the proximity to Allen Road and Highway 401. For car owners, the homes will also have ample room for parking with some properties equipped with up to three parking spaces on site.

Silverthorn Heights is proof you don’t have to leave the city for a new home. Once the new crosstown transit line is up and running, we can only imagine what great new changes are in store for the neighbourhood.

Residences start from the mid $500,000s.
