Forest hill in Toronto has always been an exclusive luxury neighborhood sought after by families wishing to send their children to the top schools in this area.
In the past, it was difficult to find a home in this area due to limited opportunities to purchase or rent homes.

- South Forest Hill Residence Condo projects are available for development in the area
The City of Toronto also has some information about South Forest Hill Residences. It is located at 63-91 Montclair avenue. There will be two towers, each with approximately 21-23 floors. There will be 634 units, with 205 parking spaces for vehicles and 635 parking spaces for bicycles.
South forest hill is developed by the famous developer—Parallax, which has done many projects in Toronto. It’s designed by IBI, which is one of the largest design companies in Toronto. The development will have about 10-20 townhouses. The current buildings at 60-90 Montclair avenue will all be demolished to make room for the new development.
The trail will be upgraded during the development process and will be more accessible when it is completed. There is a large sports field next to the path. Also, there are many condos that have been developed. In addition to the project itself, other buildings in the whole area will also be renovated to a certain extent, and the rents will be greatly increased after the renovation is completed. If you are buying a condo in South Forest Hill Residences, it will be profitable to rent the unit.
For renters, living in a condo is easier than living in a house because a house has a great deal of work. Many of the house residents in this area need to hire gardening companies to take care of their yards in summer and snow plowing companies to clean up the snow in winter. However, for people who are new to Toronto, renting a condo is a better choice.
- Good value compared to other Toronto projects
The South Forest Hill Residence will probably be launched in mid-June 2022, and the price per square foot is about $1700. Many other similar condo projects have gone up to $2000 a foot, so this is a good price in comparison.
