Located at 663 Kingston Road, the presentation centre — once home to the Dip N’ Sip donut shop — has been demolished to make way for phase one of the project. Across the street at 646 Kingston Road, the second phase, known as the Ravine Collection, is also making headway. With heavy machinery now on site, it shouldn’t be long before the development officially breaks ground and excavation and shoring work commences.
When completed in 2017, Southwood Condos will be a new landmark community in the sought-after area, bringing with it cutting-edge architecture, contemporary design and premium finishes.
With a location close to local restaurants, art galleries, specialty shops, cafes, and public green spaces, residents of the development will benefit from an impressive 87 Walk Score. They’ll also have easy access to public transportation including the Main Street subway station, Danforth GO station and TTC streetcar line right outside their doors,

Standard features and finishes include nine foot ceilings, engineered hardwood or laminate floors, quartz countertops, gas stoves, gas barbecue hook ups on balconies and a built-in heat recovery ventilator (HRV).
The development also offers units that aren’t typically seen in today’s condominium projects including larger two to three bedrooms available up to 1,680 square feet in size. These floorplans provide the extra space that many young families or downsizers are looking for including storage for toys and baby strollers and bedrooms large enough to fit king size beds.
