Scarborough City Centre

Though merely farmland fifty years ago, Scarborough City Centre boasts an impressive skyline of condominium and office towers that newcomers might just mistake for being the centre of Toronto itself. Centred around the Scarborough Town Centre Mall and the Scarborough Civic Centre (the former borough's former city hall) this rapidly growing area has become Scarborough's downtown, even if it doesn't look like a traditional city-centre area with on-street retail. An incredible amount of Canadian talent has called Scarborough home at some point, and the mall itself even contains Scarborough's own Walk of Fame.
