It started with the Scarborough Town Centre Mall, and it eventually grew to have a public square, government buildings, office towers, many brand new condominiums.

Area

The area of central scarborough originated in the 1950's, and through the 1970's became a full-fledged subdivision. Surrounding the centre is what one would generally see aroung Scarborough; a sea of thousands of bungalow's, occasionally rising to apartment buildings and a hospital or school. There is an abundance of trees. The area is also one of the most multicultural in the world, stemming from large-scale immigration to the region.

Gentrification

The gentrification of Scarborough has somewhat coincided with it's rise to second-largest borough in Toronto. Many bungalows have been renovated, and several condominiums have been added, leading to a distinct feel to the area (and a long-stretching skyline.)
