You can now bid on the El Mocambo sign on Ebay

Posted by Aubrey Jax / October 21, 2014

El Mocambo ebayThe El Mocambo drama never stops here in Toronto - except it really, really will soon. After doomsday speculation made what seemed like a permanent and cozy nest around the historic concert venue, the building has been sold, the last parties have been booked, and we no longer have to wonder what will happen to the iconic sign - until a whole new mystery unfolds.

House of the Week: 118A Robinson Street

Posted by Isabel Ritchie / October 21, 2014

118A Robinson Street TorontoJust one block from Trinity Bellwoods Park, this cute semi-detached located at 118A Robinson St. offers a pretty good picture of what you can buy with $650K in Toronto these days. The curb appeal won't blow you away, but the bones of this house are solid. Wide plank hardwood floors cover the first floor, and the open concept design is highlighted by the unique entrance to the dining area. No cookie cutter design here.

Though the lot is narrow (less than 12 feet!), there's room for more than a couple here. With three bedrooms plus a nursery (or an office), the house is deceptively large. It could, however, obviously use a reno. That kitchen probably isn't where you'd imagine cooking your dream meal, and the parquet flooring on the second level is just tired. Dump some money into this one and remain for a few years, and you'll be selling it for way more than it's listed at now.
