    Average home price

    Hi All, I apologize if this information is readily found elsewhere, but my quick search proved fruitless. I'm trying to find the average home price (this includes all property types i.e. condos / detached / semi / ...) in the 416, and then the same # for the 905. This should be easy with...

    Toronto | T3 Bayside | 42m | 10s | Hines | 3XN

    They're starting to market 2 office buildings in East Bayfront. Both 9 floors ~ 200,000 square feet. I wish em luck but don't have high hopes at all. It'll be a big challenge to attract tenants to an area that effectively doesn't exist today; Moreover is completely outside the traditional...

    Does anyone volunteer (if so where) ?

    I realized there was a similarly titled thread after creating this but I'm not quite asking the same question. I'm curious, for anyone that volunteers (I'm sure some here do), where / what do you do ? (this does not have to be related to architecture or this forum at all). I ask because...

    Article: How the 905 stole our urbanist mojo (THE GRID)

    I thought this was an interesting article: http://www.thegridto.com/city/politics/how-the-905-stole-our-urbanist-mojo/ One needs to keep in mind only about 1 year ago we had Miller, who very much pushed the interests Markham's mayor highlighted in the article above. The interesting part of...

    Condo sales in 905.

    Thought this was an interesting albeit not very surprising article (at least it should be to us). http://www.moneyville.ca/article/1057940--905-condo-sales-outstrip-toronto-for-first-time?bn=1 I'm sure this is really being spurred by downtown Marhkam, World On Yonge, and that new...

    http://www.torontolife.com/daily/informer/a-message-from-toronto-life/2011/08/12/preville-teaser/ So I'm surprised a thread about this hasn't surfaced yet ... Unfortunately the article isn't online but has anyone read it, I have ... unfortunately ... :) Lot's of commentary online one included...

    Condo Townhomes

    So I've been thinking about condo townhomes lately. Now, let me clarify - I'm referring to condo townhomes which are part of a condo building i.e. not standalone townhomes. It seems to me the condo fees really kill you here, why? Let's say one is looking for a large condo townhome - say...

    Condo soundproofing

    So I've seen this come up in a few threads already, I'll ask a couple questions to start: 1) Is there anyway to find out how soundproof a condo (existing or not) will be i.e. by looking at the building specs or something along those lines? 2) For people in relavilty new condos, what do you...
