Condomonium: $640,000 for a corner suite in a mixed-use building at Richmond at Spadina
ADDRESS: 477 Richmond Street West, Unit 709
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Waterfront Communities-The Island
AGENT: Kevin Yu, Coldwell Banker Terrequity Realty
THE PLACE: A one-bedroom corner unit in the Soho Lofts at the Starwood Centre, a former office building that’s now home to a mix of condos and commercial space.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Elmer Olsen Model Management occupies suite 708. Translation: if you live in the building, you’ll probably meet gorgeous guys and gals in the elevator and front lobby.
BIG SELLING POINT: This converted unit succeeds in feeling nothing like a dim, drab office thanks to high ceilings, polished concrete floors and abundant natural light streaming in through two walls of windows.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Unfortunately, having a cupcake shop in the building doesn’t count as an amenity. Because the structure wasn’t originally built for condo-dwellers, there’s no fitness centre, party room or yoga studio.

• 1,387 square feet
• $690.92 in monthly maintenance fees
• 11-foot ceilings
• 2 walls of windows
