Sale of the Week: The East York home that proves two lots are sometimes better than one
Address: 99B Memorial Park Avenue
Neighbourhood: East York
Agent: Rebecca Gikas, Royal LePage Realty, Brokerage
One half of a newly severed lot just north of the Danforth.
The agent’s brother-in-law bought the property in 2016 for under a million. Then he teamed up with a partner to sever it into two lots. They spent roughly $200 per square foot building this detached house on one of those parcels of land.

The buyer is a lawyer who’s upsizing from another East York home. She was attracted to the contemporary architecture, which is still relatively uncommon in the neighbourhood.
The selling agent underpriced the home to generate interest, and it worked: there were about 30 showings, and the property ended up selling before offer day. The neighbouring property, at 99A, went up for sale soon after. It sold for $1,365,000 to some buyers who were among the first to tour 99B.
