The Action: Less than a 10-minute walk south of Finch subway station in a cluster of high-rise condominiums, this one-bedroom unit at the Grand Triomphe 2 was lined up with about 20 showings prior to receiving a viable offer.
What They Got: A four-year-old residence by Tridel was designed with several street-level shops and hundreds of private suites above, including this standard, 668-square-foot unit with hardwood floors throughout, granite and ceramic finishes in the kitchen and southeast-facing windows and glass balcony door in the principal room.
Essential components include a full bathroom, six appliances, including laundry machines, exterior locker and parking.
The energy-efficient building keeps the monthly fee at $327 to maintain common areas, such as a gym, pool, yoga studio, media room and guest suites.
The Agent's Take: "It looked nice, in original condition, so it was very clean and presented well," agent Mark Oulahen said. "It's not a square layout, so the living area is more triangular, but you can fit a couch and table on either end."
This building also has a stellar reputation in the area. "It's a nice, Tridel-built building with good amenities. It's the kind of building when you walk in, you feel under-dressed compared to other [units] maybe $50,000 less," Mr. Oulahen said. "[Plus], there is a fair amount of amenities, like small shops and sushi stores … and it's close to parks and halfway between Finch and North York Centre subway [stations]."
