Cool Finds for Feb 12th - Laura's Pick!

Life and the City

PROPERTY:    609 Avenue Road Condos (Avenue, south of Lonsdale)

WHY IT'S A COOL FIND:  I love that builders are taking note of the city demands and creating larger 2- and 3-bedroom units now. This build is a prime example of luxury sky living whether you are a single person or a family with kiddies in tow. Local and international buyers are interested in this build for its close proximity to the finest private schools in city. World-renowned Upper Canada College is just steps away, and Bishop Strachan just a short drive. Other great schools both private and public are a stone’s throw away.


PRICE RANGE:  The upper floor collection offers 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom condos between $1.03m up to $1.75m for between 1179 sq ft to almost 1800 sq ft. Smaller units range between $330k up to $660k for between 510 sq ft to 967 sq ft. Balcony sizes are in addition to these sizes listed. A great buy is a 1055 sq ft unit, with 3-bedroom, 2.5 bathrooms offered at $778,900! And parking and a locker are included at these price points.

COOL FEATURES:  I like that 609 Avenue is only 19 stories high to fit in with the rest of buildings along Avenue. This building has a number of units with large terraces overlooking various parts of the city. Units are going to be very bright with oversized windows and high 9’ and 10’ ceilings. And the finishes look really great as well!

THE AREA:  This is one of the latest condos to be launched in the Avenue Road/Upper Canada College area just steps from the prestigious Forest Hill and all the shops and restos it has to offer. It is one of the only new builds at the moment right on Avenue Road. It’s close to the subway to get downtown as well.
