Whether you are buying a condo as an investment or as a place to live in and sell later on, choose wisely as a variety of elements will have a major effect on your lifestyle and your investment. For example, the familiar adage “Location, Location, Location” continues to hold true when it comes to selecting a new condominium that will increase its value over time.
An example is King Blue Condominiums, which boasts a Triple-A location at King Street West and Blue Jays Way. The best-selling condo residence in Toronto’s Entertainment District, King Blue is steps away from theatres, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, galleries, the Air Canada Centre, the Rogers Centre, Roy Thomson Hall and TIFF Bell Lightbox. These attractions are all here to stay, meaning the tremendous appeal of this locale will continue for decades to come. Nearby access to the PATH System is another drawing card for buyers of all ages.
Remember too that people enjoy a view, and King Blue’s 44 and 48-storey towers will offer stunning vistas. Capturing the energy of the surroundings, the architecture blends the old and the new with one of the two podiums featuring portions of the historic Westinghouse building.
Amenities are important in maintaining a condominium’s appeal over time. At King Blue these are exceptional, beginning with the residence lobby and its uniquely spectacular fireplace. Amenities extend to a pool with glass doors to an outdoor patio with gardens and bar, a party room, theatre room, fitness centre, gourmet kitchen, guest suites and hotel-inspired customer service. The crowning glory is the 9th floor rooftop terrace with its seating, floating fire pits, bar, illuminated metal trellises and water features. King Blue will also feature handy retail venues, plus the new permanent home of Theatre Museum Canada - something for every interest and taste.
Luxurious suites come with timeless appointments, and prices start from the mid-$200,000s - astounding value in this AAA location. If you are shopping for a condo that will increase in value over time, King Blue has everything you could want, and more.
