The largest residential development to hit downtown Whitby in over 30 years is slated to reach completion this year. 

While the project has been making headlines since 2022, a listing on Livabl.com suggests that Station No. 3, a six-storey condo taking shape at the corner of Brock Street and Colborne Street, is still expected to be move-in ready in 2024. 

Last winter, Whitby Mayor Elizabeth Roy and council members celebrated a ribbon cutting heralding the imminent arrival of the Brookfield Residential condo. Once complete, the building will boast 160 units ranging in size from 516 to 1,519 square feet. 

The development offers a range of units, including one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom suites. Prices start at $564,900, with the most expensive units selling for $1,059,900. 

The project has been in the works for several years, with both Whitby and the Durham Region committing funds to the development in an effort to “incentivize” new positive developments and investment in the downtown core. 

Durham put up $630,000 for the project, while Whitby provided $1,167,500.

The goal of the development is to provide more housing in Whitby to a variety of residents, including young professionals, young families and retirees looking to downsize. As a mixed-use building, businesses will line the Brock Street frontage, filling 9,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor.

The development site is close to the Whitby Four Corners and the Brock and Dundas Growth Area, which features numerous historic buildings. Four schools are also in the area: Julie Payette Public, West Lynde Public, St Theresa Catholic School, and Henry Street High.

As far as amenities go, the building offers a concierge, party room, courtyard, pet grooming station, fire pits, yoga studio, BBQ area, rooftop terrace, gym, patio, guest suite, bar area, co-working lounge and more. 

The listing says residents will have access to in-suite smart home technology, over-sized windows, nine-foot ceilings and more. 

On its website, Brookfield say the building will “redefine suburban living.” 

“Life at Station No. 3 is suburban living, redefined. From a bustling Downtown core filled with restaurants and shops to modern building amenities, life never stops at Station No. 3,” the site reads.
