Rental of the week: 369 Sorauren Avenue

Toronto's rental market has transformed over the last decade with a dramatic rise in condo units. These spaces can make a lot of sense for young professionals who aren't ready/able to buy, but still want the amenities and design features of a newer building.

This unit in the Robert Watson Lofts on Sorauren is a good example of what the contemporary condo rental has to offer: an open concept space, new(ish) appliances, an in-suite washer/dryer and a balcony.

If you're lucky, amenities like a gym will also be part of the package, as is the case here. There's also a parking spot, which isn't always guaranteed.

369 Sorauren Avenue TorontoIf there's a downfall to renting condo units, it's the price. Not only are they typically more expensive than units of a similar size in older apartment buildings (not a surprise), but rent hikes are more common thanks to a lack of governmental regulation on post-1991 buildings.

At $2,200, this rental ain't cheap, but it's aesthetically pleasing, decently sized, and located in an attractive neighbourhood. That'll cost you a pretty penny these days.

This won't appeal to those who dislike the unfinished look many soft lofts display these days. If that's not your style, you can get a big space in an older building.
