LOCATION & NEIGHBOURHOOD
Highland Creek is a small Scarborough neighbourhood where nature is put at a premium. Highland Commons Condos is located next to the ravine for which the community is named.
As this is a protected waterway, much of this neighbourhood has remained undeveloped. This provides this condominium with privacy and quick access to area parks. These include Colonel Danforth Park.
Highland Creek's most important landmark is the University of Toronto — Scarborough Campus (UTSC). It is located just 12 minutes away from the condo by foot. This means this development would serve as an ideal off-campus residence.
Other important neighbourhood locations include:
Although surrounded by wooded areas, local retail centres are not far away. A 5-minute car ride takes local residents to a retail area at Morningside and Lawrence. Meanwhile, Scarborough Town Centre is located 34 minutes away by transit.
Highland Commons sits at the intersection of Highway 2A. This provides motorists with a quick onramp to reach Highway 401 eastbound.
This area is also close to two GO train stations. Both Lakeshore East stations for Guildwood GO and Rouge Hill GO are located nearby. This allows locals to make quick commutes downtown.
As well, future transit plans suggest the Eglinton East LRT will make a nearby stop at UTSC. This proposed 15-kilometre Line 5 extension will provide a great deal of convenience. It will also add a great deal of value to local real estate.
