The condo is bright, airy, and east-facing, so lots of morning light comes through its large windows. The living area is spacious, next to a galley kitchen featuring the full-size appliances you don’t get in newer buildings. There’s also a walkout to a balcony to get some fresh air as well as let in the Vitamin D.
The bedroom is truly something to see. No slidey panels here! This is a real bedroom with an actual door, big enough for a Queen-size bed and side tables plus a dresser – almost unheard of in buildings further downtown. Not that you’d even need a dresser – the large closet already has organizers. There is even a really big bay-style window for the sun to stream through.
The bathroom vanity and cabinetry are updated. There is ensuite laundry, a large linen closet, plus a double hall closet with organizers included.

Heck, there is a pharmacy literally at the base of the building.
All of this comes with an oversized parking space and an oversized storage locker. And did we mention the maintenance fees are not only low but all-inclusive? If it’s time to stop renting, this condo is your opportunity.
