LISTING AGENT Terri Perras, Royal LePage Terrequity Realty

The Action: After buying this two-bedroom corner suite, the new owner had intended to design and decorate it to his own taste. But by the time he took possession his personal circumstances changed and the unit was put back on the market. He was in no rush to sell the 11th-floor space and several low-ball bids were thrown out before a buyer with a viable offer materialized.

What They Got: About five years ago, the former Bell Canada building was refurbished with hard lofts and topped up with new loft-style suites, such as this 1,205-square-foot space with concrete floors, 101/2-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork and windows oriented south and east.

There is an open living, dining and cooking area sectioned off from two bedrooms, including a master with a walk-in closet and one of two bathrooms.

En-suite laundry facilities, parking and a locker down the hall from fitness and recreation facilities complete the package. Monthly fees of $615 cover services, such as water, heating and 24-hour concierge.

The Agent's Take: "It's one of the only true hard lofts anywhere in Etobicoke," agent Terri Perras says. "Ultimately, the person who bought it was someone who already lived in the building – so they understood and appreciated the building – and just wanted a larger suite and … were excited to do their own thing."

What the unit lacked in finishes, it made up in size and scope. "Other than the penthouse, this is one of the largest suites," Ms. Perras adds. "[Furthermore] it's at the southeast corner, so there are floor-to-ceiling all the way around on the corner with spectacular, unobstructed views of downtown Toronto."
