The $1 million condo in Toronto ain't what it used to be. You'd think this benchmark price would get you boast-worthy pad with lots of luxury features and amenities, but some of the listing out there are downright pedestrian, particularly those located in high demand neighbourhoods. Read it and weep, Toronto.
Here's what a $1 million condo looks like in Toronto.
$959,000 in Liberty Village
Coming in at under the $1 million mark, this Toy Factory loft is actually one of the nicest on the market in this price range. With two bedrooms spread over two storeys and a 17 foot ceiling atop the living room, the unit feels wonderfully spacious. The exposed concrete won't be for everybody, but it suits the loft aesthetic. Maintenance fees come in at $580.84 a month.
$999,999 in Sunnybrook
Once you hit the million mark in Toronto's condo market, you see more and more townhouses. This one can be found across from Sunnybrook Hospital proximate to Lawrence Park and Leaside, a location that will cost you. This unit features three bedrooms, but the living space is relatively small and the design is rather conservative.
$1,039,888 on the waterfront
This building located on the waterfront, though the view from the unit in question mostly faces towards the Financial District. I'm not sure if that's a bad thing, as the view is still incredible and there are some lake view vantage points. There are three bedrooms and an open-concept living and eating space plus building amenities like a sweet indoor pool and exercise room.
$1,048,000 at Humber Bay Shores
If it's sweeping waterfront views you're after, then this Humber Bay Shores condo is a good representative of what a million bucks gets you west of downtown Toronto. The 1594 square foot unit has three bedrooms and 10 foot ceilings throughout. Maintenance fees ring up at $1,075 a month, but you'll get a rooftop terrace, indoor pool and sauna, gym and a mini theatre.
$1,079,000 at Richmond and Spadina
This pimped out unit only features one bedroom, but it's got a billiard area and a novel design that'll appeal to young professionals who are earning big without the financial demands of a family. This custom loft was achieved by joining two existing units, which gives it tons of character, but be prepared to fork out on the maintenance fees, which come in at $1,121.40 a month.
