Condo of the Week: 2289 Lake Shore Boulevard
This place is not new to Toronto's real estate listings, but with blue skies set to take over the city skyline (fingers crossed), I'd say this property is poised to host a few impressive upcoming showing (and the lowered price tag will certainly help some, too.) Three storeys, three bedrooms, and a view that would make any skeptic swoon, this place will certainly take your breath away — if in large part just due to its crippling maintenance fees.

MOVE ON IF:
You don't think this place will look as pretty with an eight-month backdrop of grey skies. You think this place is a lot less pretty with thousand-dollar maintenance fees in mind. You hate sunshine.
