Scarborough is a great place for homebuyers. It is established, mature, has great infrastructure already in place, yet continues to grow and evolve, always getting better. There are businesses of every type and industry, lots of schools and shopping areas, and many green spaces to explore and enjoy. Read on for our top 5 reasons to live at Cowdray Court in Scarborough.
One of the greatest highlights of living in a city like Toronto is its diversity; you are surrounded by an array of faiths and cultures. In Scarborough, you can meet, work, and socialize with people who have backgrounds different from your own, support business owners of every ethnicity, and enjoy artistic and cultural traditions from all around the world. The most recent Canadian Census, done in 2016, showed that Scarborough has the largest visible minority population of all six of the city of Toronto’s former municipalities, at 73%. It is both diverse and welcoming.
Scarborough is also very transit-friendly, with both the TTC and GO Transit providing robust transportation service throughout. TTC buses run frequently along Sheppard Avenue East, and can connect you with the Sheppard subway at Don Mills Subway Station or the Yonge line at Sheppard-Yonge station to the west. You can also travel as far east as Meadowvale Road and the Toronto Zoo. Excellent bus service is offered along all of the main north-south routes as well. The Agincourt GO station is 3 minutes away by car or a 12-minute walk; the train gets you to Union Station in 25 minutes. At Cowdray Court there’s also easy, direct access to the highway system, as the development is located just two blocks north of the Kennedy Road exit on Hwy 401.
Short Drive To Downtown Without The Price Of Downtown Condos
If you are headed into downtown Toronto, whether for business or pleasure, it’s less than a 20-minute drive away.

The area is not as busy or noisy as the downtown core, and you have more space to enjoy, yet every service imaginable is available close by.
