Lack of outdoor space holds back King West condo sale Add to ...

LISTING AGENT Christopher Bibby, Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc.

The Action: At Quad Lofts in King West, many units have outdoor space, but this one-bedroom-plus-den suite does not, so it lingered a bit on the market as 45 buyers evaluated its merits in person early this year.

What They Got: In an eight-year-old high-rise designed with loft-like suites such as this roughly 800-square-foot unit with upgraded concrete floors, walls of windows and open study, living, dining and cooking areas.

The only enclosed space is a bedroom with a walk-in closet and semi-ensuite bathroom.

Monthly fees of $469 cover the cost of water, concierge, rooftop deck, gym and recreation room.

The Agent’s Take: “The nice thing with this unit is you have floor-to-ceiling windows and a galley kitchen so it kept the living and dining space pretty open,” said agent Christopher Bibby. “The sellers did some upgrades, so there were built-ins in the master walk-in closet and new sliding doors to the bedroom, so the unit overall showed well.”

The urban setting was another highlight. “It’s tucked in off King and Adelaide, so while you’re in a busy area, there is a landscaped courtyard with a fountain … so it feels rather tranquil,” Mr. Bibby said.

“We did have the view to the east of the entire downtown core.”
