Condo of the Week: $699,900 for a Liberty Village corner unit with soaring ceilings

Condo of the Week: 5 Hanna Avenue, Unit 639

Address: 5 Hanna Avenue, Unit 639
Neighbourhood: Niagara
Agent: Michael Camber, Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: $699,900

The Place: A two-bedroom, two-storey corner unit on the sixth floor of Liberty Market Lofts, located just down the street from the lot where the Liberty Village Farmers’ Market sets up shop in warmer months.

Bragging Rights: Lifetime and BLVD Developments—no strangers to high-end projects—built a host of top-notch amenities, including multiple meeting rooms, a yoga room, an indoor half-basketball court, a decorated guest suite and a dog-washing and grooming facility.

Big Selling Point: Not the work-from-home type? The study, located just off the master bedroom, could easily become a dressing room: two walls of windows keep the room bright, while automated blinds block any wandering eyes.

Possible Deal Breaker: The unit offers expansive views of the city to the south, east and west (BMO Field is visible from the living room, which may be attractive to Toronto FC fans), but the area immediately surrounding the building is currently dominated by parking lots.
