House of the week: 9b Gilead Place

The townhouse complex at Gilead Place checks off a number of boxes for urban living. Located on a laneway off of King Street in Corktown, these homes dispense with front and back yards in favour of proximity to transit and various amenities like cafes, restaurants and retail.
