The action

The unit comes with stainless-steel kitchen appliances and laundry machines.

In November, barely 48 hours passed before a quick-thinking buyer filed a bid for this two-bedroom-plus-den suite at River City near the former Pan Am Games site.

“There were a lot of one-bedroom and one-bedroom plus dens being offered, so the fact we came out with a two-bedroom and two-bathroom [unit] is uncommon,” agent Christopher Bibby said.

“There are a lot of couples being priced out of the housing market or empty-nesters looking to downsize, so we’re seeing a real spike in demand for two-bedroom suites.”

What they got

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and private bathroom.

Montreal firm, Saucier + Perrotte Architectes, designed the multiphase community where this 865-square-foot suite boasts nine-foot ceilings and a balcony off the principal room.

Hidden out of sight is a den at the entryway into the master bedroom with a walk-in closet and private bathroom.

Stainless-steel kitchen appliances and laundry machines round out the unit. The condo also comes with a locker, two bike racks and a parking spot. Monthly fees of $516 cover concierge and upkeep of a gym, party room and outdoor pool.

The agent’s take

“River City is one of the hottest pockets in all of downtown Toronto, especially in the condo market,” Mr. Bibby said.

“That east hub along the Don River is highly in demand. It has more of a community feel and there are not a lot of investors.”

The five-year-old mid-rise is also renowned for its edgy design. “The layout isn’t typical because the master was on a 45-degree angle along the windows,” Mr. Bibby said.

“The finishes were very modern with white oak hardwood floors, a very modern kitchen and sleek spa-like bathrooms with dark grey slate tiles.”
