CONDO Vs. Parking Space

More Parking Space Or More Condos?

There no denying the Torontoians have the condo fever. This is not just for Torontoians, but crazy has spread throughout the GTA including Mississauga , Oakville , Richmond Hill and Markham . 2007 was known as the year of the Condos, with the prices increased by 8.6%.

It is bad enough downtown Toronto is losing their parking spaces, but now plazas are being bought out so that condos can be built. As a victim of condo development, my parent’s business was bought out on Lake Shore And Brownsline for the Aquaview Condo.

Bloor and St. George have experience the same and now stands a luxury condo 1 Bedford , where the prices start from $500,000 to over a Million dollars.


Uptown in North York around the Yonge and Shepard area a plaza that has been standing there for as long as I remember will be torn down and a Tridel Condo will be built.

So what are we to do when the condos are being built? As the old saying goes if you can’t beat them join them. Although I have been a victim of condo development, that doesn’t hinder me from buying a condo in the city.

In fact it makes you rethink, if condos are being built everywhere; taking over our parking spaces and with the increase price in gas prices, cars are going to be scarcely used and perhaps obsolete. Public transportation maybe the answer to our traffic gridlocks. For those who work downtown wouldn’t it be a good idea to invest in a Condo in the city? Something to ponder!
