There's no racket, hardly any speculators, not many investors. Most of the people living in the building are empty-nest couples or young couples, sometimes with a kid (rarely more than one). I'd estimate that 50-60% of the units are owner-occupied.
The units aren't cheaply-built. You're not living in crazy luxury, but the apartments are all really nice...Your idea that a bigger home is better is very uniquely North American...
https://urbantoronto.ca/forum/threa...-rosario-varacalli.4829/page-170#post-1257292Remember that new format Metro that was supposed to open on the second floor with all these neat market substations all around the perimeter including independent brand name retailers,... well, one of them appears to have deserted and found a new home,..... nope, not talking about the LCBO,... yet,.... the Starbucks kiosk that was supposed to be near the top of the escalator area,... now officially gone,.... look like they're officially going underground,.... as part of TTC's Sheppard-Yonge Subway Station!
One of the Emerald Park tenants told me today that the LCBO was opening in late September or early October and that there would be a supermarket also, though not necessarily Metro. Has anyone heard about any of this. She seemed quite excited about the prospect of more business.
