Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can buy or rent for a set dollar amount in various Toronto neighbourhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,000/month.
↑ To start off, here's a two-bedroom, pet-friendly apartment at Bloor and Dovercourt for $2,000/month plus 25% of utility costs. It comes with private laundry, a renovated kitchen, and a great deck with a gas grill. From the photos, it looks like one of the bedrooms connects to the living room via french doors, which might make it awkward privacy-wise.
↑ This two-bedroom unit at 10 Capreol Court, a high-rise near the Rogers Centre, will run you $2,000/month. The building has some great amenities like a lap pool, and there's a party room on the 32nd floor that has see-through floor panels (which is weird, but cool). Note: from the photo it looks like wearing black is a party-room requirement. The unit itself looks like a fairly standard condo, presumably with opaque floors.
↑ If apartment life isn't your thing, here's a newly-renovated bungalow near Yonge and Finch that you can get for $2,000/month. It has two bedrooms, a big kitchen with lots of storage space, hardwood floors and a big back yard.
↑ Want to live in Toronto's landmark condo tower? Here's a one-bedroom-plus-den suite at Aura for $2050/month. This unit is on one of the middle floors, and overlooks a rooftop garden and waterfall. Aura connects directly to College subway station, too--so handy in these days of weird, unpredictable weather. Best of all, you'll be able to tell your friends, "See that insanely-tall building off in the distance? That's where I live".
↑ Here's the main floor of a charming older home near Bathurst and St. Clair for $1,950/month. There are two bedrooms, an in-house washer and dryer, a dishwasher and a private deck. "No smoking of any kind", so you'll have to put off that dream of building your own barbeque pit.
↑ Lastly, Ray Charles welcomes you to this three-bedroom house near St. Clair and Caledonia, available for $1,995/month (plus utilities). It has an eat-in kitchen, los of closet space, and the bathroom looks pretty up-to-date. There's pad parking out front and a large back yard with studio and deck. There's also a "large cold seller" in the basement; someone should tell him to come upstairs where it's warm.
