LISTING AGENT Alina Kholodov, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division
The Action: The Yards, in the condo community south of Fort York, had some unsold units upon completion about a year ago, so the builder and first occupants sometimes battle over buyers.
For instance, this two-bedroom corner unit was listed last year without any bites, but had better luck relisted this spring with an offer on the heels of about three dozen showings.
What They Got: Near the top of a new high-rise with hundreds of units, this 778-square-foot suite is fairly standard with a central principal room outfitted with hardwood floors, an angled wall of walls and a balcony with a second walkout to the master.
For easy cleanup and cooking, there are two full bathrooms, stacked laundry machines and a galley kitchen with stainless steel appliances off the foyer.
A locker and parking come with the unit, along with monthly fees of $435 for water and heating to a rooftop terrace, party, media and fitness rooms.
The Agent's Take: "The area itself has really transformed, and the Fort York location is beginning to be more desired because it's off the beaten path, but is extremely central still," agent Alina Kholodov says.
"This is a slightly larger two-bedroom … but the big plus is that it's a corner unit, so you have north and east views. You see the CN Tower and the city skyline – it's pretty much unobstructed – and Fort York, which is completely protected."
