    Construction Defects Law

    Having lived in Denver for a while, I found their new construction defects law which was implemented a few years ago interesting considering their quality issues with new condos is nowhere as bad as we are experiencing here. Because this new law makes developers more accountable and liable...

    Tagging/graffiti in TO

    Not everyone has CCTV cameras on their property and 99% of taggers never get caught, so I hope this sends a message to these careless vandals (unfortunately this cry baby did run away with no police arrest): A shocking video emerged Friday...

    Diner en Blanc

    Did anyone go to this last night? Sounds like a great concept. Beyond the wet weather, it was a little disorganized and many of the participants did not come very prepared (they brought coloured umbrellas and wasn't wearing 100% white which was a major no-no, brought stuff they could barely...

    is CityPlace really that bad?

    I am looking to rent a crashpad downtown for a year or two until my condo is built, so it doesn't need to be big or fancy. I just need a decent clean 1 or 1+ bedroom (600 s.f. minimum) with a balcony, decent amenities (at least a gym) and possibly parking (nice but not essential). I am in no...

    Room sizes vs. number of rooms?

    After returning to Toronto I realized how much smaller condo units have become. 400 s.f. units are not uncommon, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths could be squeezed into a space of 750 s.f., and 800 s.f. is considered huge. I understand that real estate prices have gone up significantly and people are...

    Cell phone towers on condos

    Driving down the DVP I noticed there were a few condo/apartment buildings with cell phone towers on them. They are not the most attractive things either attached to a side of the building on the roof edge, but I am concerned about how close these things are installed to people's unit's, with...

    source for cheap stone countertops?

    I need a stone countertop made for a small bathroom vanity. I have seen those obnoxious signs on the street and ads on Craig's List and Kijiji advertising for really cheap, but they do not seem very reputable, and their stone selection is very limited and just plain ugly (granite that looks...

    Stupid condo jingles

    Pedestrian streets in TO?

    Do we have any pedestrian-only streets in Toronto? I have been to cities with them in a prominant part of the city and they add so much life and vibrance to the area day and night. It would nice to see one in downtown Toronto.

    Homes on Toronto Island

    I know it's a real rarity for a house on Toronto Island to come up on the market. I understand that you are buying just the house and you have to lease the land from the city, and a lottery system is held for potential buyers dur to the demand. I always thought it would be cool to live on the...
