CO-OP AGENT Anil Khera, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.
The Action: Clients of agent Anil Khera shortlisted a few properties to tour near the St. Lawrence Market last fall. Their top choice was this one-bedroom-plus-den corner loft in a boutique building with few vacancies annually.
What They Got: A mixed-use low-rise houses retail outlets and 12 residences, including this third-floor loft with 11-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and north and east-facing windows, plus laundry machines, four-piece bathroom and a locker.
The kitchen was rearranged with cabinetry and stainless steel appliances along one wall of an open living and dining area, and a newly created den doubles as a walkway to a bedroom with a walk-in closet.
Monthly fees of $679 cover utilities.
The Agent's Take: "The area has so much to offer, it's very friendly and very walkable to the shops, restaurants and entertainment," Mr. Khera says. "[Plus, this unit] is just under 20 years old, but it has super high ceilings, lots of cement and open ductwork that you get in hard lofts."
Recent changes made the space more functional . "The previous owners had done a fantastic renovation and used high quality materials, making best possible use of the space," Mr, Khera notes. "This unit in particular appealed to [the sellers also] because it's a corner unit that has windows on two sides, so it's nice, bright and open."
