While Toronto might be known for its record construction of investor-driven condos there is one market segment that manages to stay under the radar and that is luxury condos in Toronto. Toronto has grown into one of the largest cities in North America and with it, so too has its real estate market. The city has something for everyone from small studios to large and impressive family-sized condos.
I’m constantly scouring the market for the best investments from investing in small pre-construction condos in Toronto to large luxury suites. Recently I wrote this article, breaking down all of the reasons why I’m investing in family-sized condos and the luxury market in Toronto.
Here’s my list of the most impressive and luxurious condos in Toronto that you should know about whether you’re an end-user or an investor alike.
