The history

The unit is in the Park Plaza, a nine-storey building that’s just over a decade old. The current owners, a couple who live in Richmond Hill, bought the apartment 10 years ago and lived there for three years before deciding to rent it out.

Major perk

In February, the owners renovated the apartment. They added new appliances, new floors, and decorative shutters on the windows. The project just wrapped up a couple of weeks ago, so the new tenant will be the first person to live in the refreshed space.

Possible deal breaker

The North York location might be a turnoff for those who work downtown—but in many ways, this spot is convenient: the Downsview subway station is across the street, Yorkdale Shopping Centre is nearby, and access to major highways is a cinch.
