Do you like cars? Do you like driving?
If you LOVE cars and you LOVE watching other people drive, boy – do I have the condo for YOU!
There are certainly worse condos in the city of Toronto, but likely not many.
Short of pulling over and getting out a measuring tape, I’m not sure if I can ever fully track how close some of these condominium units are to the Gardiner, but I think this is the closest one I’ve ever seen!
Again – I ask, rhetorically, “Who is buying this condo?”
I have no idea.
And I have no clue how somebody could mistake a giant six-lane highway for something other than an eyesore and a giant red flag for investing.
However, let’s have a look at this:
That’s the artist’s rendering for 18 Yonge Street, and it’s missing a few things…
Where are all the neighbouring condos? Where is the Air Canada Centre, the 100-something buildings in the background, the Lake Shore Boulevard, and of course – the Gardiner Expressway?
And where the heck did all those trees come from?
I’ve also never seen a purple sky before, but maybe this was drawn by a seven-year-old with an architect’s steady hand, and a vivid imagination…
The only reason I can think of, why somebody would buy a condo on the floor that is parallel to the Gardiner and a couple feet away from the guard-rail, would be if that person relied on an artist’s rendering like the one above.
I guess if you live in Hong Kong and you’ve never been to Toronto – you might be duped into buying that otherwise unsellable unit.
So it would seem there truly is “a buyer for every property,” isn’t there?
