The details: 326–2788 Prince Edward St. | $499,000 | 512 sq. ft. | 1 Bed, 1 Bath | Built 2013The condo: An open plan layout and 8’8” ceilings, combined with a 100-plus square-foot patio maximize all available space in this petit one-bedroom unit. Light wood flooring and sleek white cabinetry in the kitchen give the apartment an airy and open feel, while stainless steel appliances add a modern touch. Floor to ceiling windows and patio doors in both the bedroom and living area allow for lots of natural light. Like many modern condos, i-suite washer and dryer, dishwasher and microwave are included, as well as one parking space and two bike stalls. This is the perfect space for a single, urban professional; a couple who very much enjoy each other’s company; or a wealthy business person whose primary residence is somewhere fabulous and secluded.The building: Built in 2013, Uptown by Concord Pacific is a 102-unit, nine-storey concrete complex with a shared fitness centre, sports lounge and meeting area. In addition to your private balcony, there is also a communal rooftop deck space and a children’s play area.The neighbourhood: South Main, or “SoMa” as the people are desperately trying to rename it, is also called Mount Pleasant, and frankly, you’re walking distance to the up-and-coming Fraserhood—there’s a plethora of excellent dining options, boutique shopping, grocery stores and more all around. While the area has every possible amenity, including some very cool live venues and artist spaces, it’s more laid back than living right downtown. More hustling to get in line for brunch, less bustling from office to transit.The drawbacks: While this is normally a fairly quiet residential area, you are right next door to the Biltmore Cabaret and 12 Kings sports bar, both of which release drunken revelers into the neighbourhood on weekdays and weekends. While the bar does try to direct the louder partygoers out onto Kingsway, you’re likely to hear a bit of noise from time to time.See the full listing here.
