Excellent Demand

All recent pre-construction condo launches in the neighbourhood have sold out in a few weeks including Nobu Residences and Peter & Adelaide in 2017. The demand for more units in the area is huge. Rentals are gone in a few days and resales are averaging 30-60 days.

The Entertainment District is one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in Toronto and the rents are approximately 15% higher than the City average. with rental rates now averaging $4.50 PSF and higher. This neighbourhood has very limited availability and we expect rental rates to continue to grow strong. Under 1% vacancy rates in the King West Condo market.

We are personally invested in condos at Bisha and SoHo Metropolitan, which have proven to be excellent investments over the years.
