Condo of the Week: 993 Queen West

Check out this condo at the Centre for Social Innovation in the Annex! Oops, I mean the Candy Factory Lofts across from Trinity Bellwoods Park. Heh. Though you can see how I might get confused, right? Designed by Karen Sealy, this two-bedroom condo has a bit of an industrial-chic-meets-country-cabin feel, complete with huge arched windows so everyone can see you in your industrial-chic-meets-country-cabin condo. And with a price tag that's actually under $1,000,000 (which may become somewhat of a rarity for a Candy Factory two-bedroom), this unit, obviously, is a home for the everyman. Solidarity, workers — this one's for you.

GOOD FOR:

Snagging a prime sunning spot in Trinity Bellwoods Park (though it's up to you to convey that aloof sense of, "Oh, I just stumbled upon here..."). Good for entertaining, cohabitation (see two showers, above), bragging. Bonuses include natural light, room for yoga and yerba mate party, and lots of space for storage.

MOVE ON IF:

You hate wood walls that don't go up to the ceiling, or living amongst a sea of wayfarer glasses. You expect a little land for your $800,000; or at the very least, a second toilet.

INVESTMENT POTENTIAL:

Remember when Candy Factory lofts were selling for $200,000 - $300,000? Ah, the good old days of 2008...
