Two corner suites at Work Lofts at Dundas Street and Carlaw Avenue were put on the market just days apart in August. This staged, two-bedroom version was on a higher floor and was oriented southwest, two characteristics that appealed to one house-hunter so much that they lodged a $1.01-million offer a few days before the scheduled presentation date.
“Although we are seeing an over-abundance of condos in the downtown core, sales are still happening,” agent Jose Arias said.
“This particular unit is a southwest corner unit and there are only two other units with that layout in total – above and below – so it’s very unique and they don’t come up very often.”
What they got
This roughly 850-square-foot suite has a wide but shallow layout, with bedrooms bookending an open principal room. Sliding doors open to a 170-square-foot terrace.
The ceiling is nine feet high, with hardwood floors underneath. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove.
There are two full bathrooms and stacked laundry machines.
Monthly fees of $532 pay for water and heating, as well as use of common workspaces, a party room and the rooftop deck. The unit comes with a storage locker and parking.
The agent’s take
“It has floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows, so it gives it a different feel than other units where you might be facing other sides of buildings. You get CN Tower views and afternoon light,” Mr. Arias said.
“Also, it’s a wonderful neighborhood to live in both for singles and families alike, which is a big driver as you don’t get as many listings in Leslieville for condominiums right now.”
