IF YOU HAD $1-MILLION...
You Could Buy a One-Bedroom Condo in Toronto
It's not llamas, emus or even a whole house. Unlike the classic Barenaked Ladies song, If I Had A Million Dollars, that kind of money will net you a mere one-bedroom condo in Toronto.
However, at the very top of the pricy condo market, just six of the city's 10 most expensive units cost more than $1-million.
Practically a bargain!
We have compiled a list of the 10 most expensive one-bedroom condos in the city. Most of them are in the downtown core, spread among Yorkville, The Annex, and the Bay Street corridor.
Take a look around - are they worth it? Or would you spend your money on the fanciest ketchups?
On a side-note, it's interesting to observe that 3 of the top 7 most expensive one-bedroom suites are in Yorkville's The Four Seasons, 6 of 10 are in Yorkville, and 7 of 10 are in luxurious hotel/condos.
