Welcome to our January 2015 e-Newsletter!        

One of my favourite things about Toronto is that it's constantly changing (even from year to year). However, for a real contrast, see below for a link that allows you to scroll through the photos of what the city looked like in the 1930s!

2014 was a boom year for the condo market; a record number of units were completed in the past twelve months. Scroll down for that article below along with a piece from the Star which illustrates the housing market across the country. Specifically, it documents average home prices in major cities and the income necessary to buy there.

Looking to escape the cold? Winterlicious is around the corner... but how do you choose which restaurants to go to?? You'll find a link below to the best menus this year (as per Toronto.com).

I also have three listings which include a spectacular two bedroom corner unit at Radio City, a renovator's dream condo at Harbourfront and a condo for lease in King West Village with great views.

As always, I thank you for your past and future business and any referrals you may have are greatly appreciated.

A 1930s Toronto photo extravaganza

   

The Toronto of the 1930s was a city mired in the Great Depression. Though high-profile construction projects like Commerce Court and Canada Life Building were brought to fruition, numerous others were nixed or heavily revised. There were plans to extensively alter the downtown street grid, adding multiple grand avenues between Spadina, Dundas, and Sherbourne, and a proposal by the Eaton's department store for what would have been the largest retail and office complex in the world, but the economy didn't co-operate.
