The Merge Condos is an upcoming 10-storey luxury condominium development in Scarborough. It is located by the waterfront and is being developed by LCH Developments/Lifestyle Custom Homes. This new project will be based in the southern shore of Scarborough and will blend posh accommodations along with modern convenience. The Merge Condos will be located at 2201 Kingston Road in the Birch Cliff neighborhood of lower Scarborough and is expected to be occupied by 2022. The design of the tower is being taken care of by RAW design, which will make it stand as an urban addition to the growing cosmopolitan area. This development will have a total of 180 residential units that are distributed across three different configurations. The condominium units make up the majority of the living units and also feature layouts which range from studio all the way up to 3-bedroom along with den units. 2-storey townhome units are also available and are located on the ground to the south and east of the complex. These are available as 2-bedroom or 2-bedroom with den units. The Merge Condos also features 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom live/work units that come with a main floor for commercial and retail uses along with a 2nd floor as a residence. 56 of these units come with expansive terraces, while the other units have balconies. Most of the den units are large enough to accommodate a pull-out couch, while all the homes in this development will be ready-wired for smart home monitoring and security systems.
In order to complement the sumptuous suites, Merge Condos offers a wide range of upmarket amenities to make the homemaker experience as luxurious as possible. Starting with the roof where most of the amenities are located, Merge Condos features a rooftop terrace that overlooks the city, offering breathtaking views of Lake Ontario along with the downtown skyline. It is also equipped with several other amenities which include a fire pit lounge area, dining space, cabanas and a sun deck to make every social engagement a memorable one. Residents can also make use of the indoor and outdoor party rooms that come with kitchen and a bar. The residents of Merge Condos can also stay in shape thanks to the 2-storey fitness and yoga centre which is equipped with premium cardio and strength training equipment. Residents can also choose to relax at the condo’s media centre where they can make full use of a state-of-the-art entertainment system along with the VIP-style lounge seating. The Merge Condos is also pet-friendly and allows residents to cater to their animal friends using the condo’s ground floor dig wash with laundry tub and grooming table. The underground parking space also features EV parking stalls where residents with electric vehicles can charge their cars. The four initial storeys of the building will act as its base, while the floors above it will step back in single storey intervals. This has been designed in order to create a unique aesthetic of a stepped back façade, which will double as a way to limit the building’s shadow on the street. Merge Condos will have a total of 169 parking spots available for its residents in a two-level underground garage. It will also feature a bicycle parking space that can accommodate 188 bicycles.
