Condo of the week: 388 Richmond Street West
In Toronto's Fashion District, $899,900 buys you a two-plus-den with a killer view of the CN Tower. The seventh floor unit at 388 Richmond Street West in the District Loft building is located in the heart of downtown, attracting the young professional who works hard, plays hard and enjoys the night life of this lively neighbourhood.
Don't be mistaken. 388 Richmond is more upscale than party central with its pricier units and higher monthly fees. Maintenance is just over $1,000 per month, working out to approx. 56 cents per square feet. Take into account it's an older building (built in 2001) and offers few amenities other than a fitness studio.
This two-level unit is a loft that doesn't feel brick and beam lofty, and larger than most row houses in the vicinity. There's windows galore, a terrace with gas barbecue hookup, and a second floor bedroom trapped inside a glassed-in cage. Migraine sufferers beware--this unit has almost too much natural light.
Showing off to your design-savvy friends. Built by Context Developments and designed by ArchitectsAlliance, the loft won numerous architecture awards for its edgy u-shaped twin tower design. Brag about that during your next soiree.
MOVE ON IF
You can't take the heat (or the bitter cold). The unit boasts plenty of natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows, spanning the entire living space. Close the shades or that glassed-in second bedroom is your own personal sauna this summer.
