This is what a $2,200 apartment looks like in Toronto right now

Renting in Toronto has never been more expensive than in the last couple of years. It's hard to find the right digs for you, but with a budget just under the average one-bedroom cost (around $2,230), the right rental sites, and a few key steps, your options should be better than most.  

Here's what a $2,200 rental in Toronto looks like right now. 

460 Adelaide St. East

There's a few good things going for this spot. First of all, the price of $2,200 includes utilities, which is a welcome surprise. Second, it comes with a den, a bike locker, and two large closets, which is more storage space than anyone could ever ask for in Toronto.
