When one thinks of iconic Toronto intersections, Yonge & Bloor undoubtedly comes to mind.
From a real estate perspective, the area has a certain cachet that is undeniable and has been known to put buyers (and realtors) into a state of frenzy (remember all the hoopla surrounding the launch of One Bloor Condos a few years ago?).
Thankfully, One Bloor isn't the only option in the area!
There are a handful of condo buildings within spitting distance of Yonge & Bloor that actually offer relatively good value for the money.
The Residences of 8 Park Rd is one such building.
A bit more about The Residences of 8 Park Rd:
