If they are looking for brand new design inside out, 10 ft ceiling, all detached neighbourhood, convenient location connecting east and west, close to two GO train lines, etc., there aren't too many options in fact ;)
If you got close to 3 millions dollars to drop on a house, I doubt you would care about being close to a GO train station. These people don't do the 9-5 grind.

I have to disagree. People still work and don't want to commute through the traffic. Ppl iwho lives n Forest Hill who works downtown still takes the TTC.

Exactly, I was going to say the same thing. Those who can afford $3M house does not mean they don't work and all have to send kids to private school. A lot of Chinese immigrants who can afford these multiple million $ houses simply because their properties back home worth way more than here. Thus, before they move here, they can sell their home and buy a mansion here. But then it does not mean they are all wealthy and tons of money to spend. I have friends who moved here, live in Forrest Hill, their kids go to public school there.

Any reviews on Nellie McClung PS and St Anne Catholic School for Block 11? Nellie McClung FI rating1056 out of 2900 for 2015/16 is vs St Anne's 73. How good a basis is Fraser Institute ratings? I know Nellie McClung is a newer school, opened around 2013 I believe. Not sure about St Anne.

You think a top ranked school will automatically make any kids in there to be a top student ??

By the way, if you are thinking about moving into this new site by Treasure Hill that we are talking about, I assume your kids will go to Herbert Carnegie, right ? That site is just right across the park and school ;)

I did.
15 lots in total where released and 4 were marked sold. Prices ranged from 2.7M to 3M and all the better lots had a 100-200K premium on top of that. Home sizes are 4,500 to 6,000 sqft including the basement though..
There's another 15 lots there that will be built by 'Vogue' (?).

Thanks for the update. I thought the email said it starts from $2,6K, did they raise a $100k ?

Anyway, I guess with the lot premium and upgrades, it would be easily over $3M out the door........

I see. I guess you are in UWS, thus kids are not going to Herbert Carnegie. Anyway, with hundreds of new families moving into UWS, I doubt Herbert Carnegie can handle all kids from there anyway. Hopefully, a new secondary/high school will be ready in the next several years within UTE/UWS.

For Catholic; I could be wrong but I don't believe St Anne boundary covers UWS. I believe it is St. Mary. Good thing about going St Anne or St Mary is it gets you on track to St Therese of Lisieu, which is a one of the top schools in the province (4/623) over past 5 years.

What about the kids in Herbert Carnegie ? Are they going to Major Mac High if there is no new one coming up ?

St Therese of Lisieu is in the same ranking as Unionville High and Bayview Secondary which are the most sought after schools in Markham and Richmond Hill. No wonder people are paying premium to move into UWS, and lot of Chinese are moving into this area in the last several years.
