Rental of the week: 218 Queen Street East
Back when I first started profiling these 'rentals,' I chose a place in this very same building. You might remember it as the fire hazard with a bunk bed.
That place is one of the worst I've ever seen, but this place isn't great either... Is it just this building that charges outrageous rent for an apartment that's barely better than a squat?
Also, if you know anything about location this neighbourhood is one of the least desirable on the real estate market. Moss Park is slowly transitioning, but does not have a reputation as a nice place to live.
And this begs the question as to why this place is listed at $1,520 a month.
Not only is it in a terrible location, but it's tiny, run down and has zero storage. There aren't even kitchen cupboards!
As for the 'kitchen,' it's really just a piece of particle board with a sink stuck in it and a fridge. The oven and stove are non-existent, as is any ventilation.
But at least this place has windows...So I guess that's something.
People who hate opening kitchen cupboard doors.
You'd like to avoid the fire hazard next door.
