What They Got:

On the eighth floor of the two-tower community, the 1,412-square-foot suite features windows in each room, including an eat-in kitchen with parquet floors, a carpeted dining area and an open living space with a walkout to a 25-by 8-foot balcony that is also accessible from a master suite.

Practical assets include two bathrooms, including the master ensuite, a laundry room, a locker and parking.

The monthly fee of $1,070 pays for utilities, 24-hour concierge and common amenities, such as a gym, indoor pool, hot tub, party and meeting rooms and a private park.

The Agent’s Take:

“People really love Granite Place [on account of] the lush landscaped lobby and a very large indoor pool, which attracted a lot of people,” says agent Elli Davis. “It’s an easy walk to the subway and the shops. The Yonge and St. Clair location is very, very hot.”

This suite, which is an average size in the roughly 30-year-old building, also provides lots of space to roam. “This was a split, two-bedroom, two-bathroom plan and the balconies are quite large there,” adds Ms. Davis.
