Think you can't get anything decent in Toronto for under $500,000? This former apartment building converted into a "New York style" condo has great potential near Bathurst and St. Clair West. It needs a little work but a few small renos will make it a great living space. The three-bedroom unit listed for $329,000 is approx. 1,100 square feet with a monthly maintenance fee of $685. There's only one bathroom, no parking or elevator but the lobby decor resembles a boutique art deco hotel you'd find in South Beach Miami. It might be a royal pain to lift your groceries (or child) up the stairs but the price for the area and size is a good deal. This renovated two-bedroom unit in the same building was listed for $349,000, selling for $347,000. The only bad news is the nearby ice cream shop, Dutch Dreams on Vaughan Road, is moving after 30 years in the same location. The good news is the ice cream shop is only moving a few blocks over, re-opening its store in March.
