This is totally fake. That last place is not in Toronto. Also, it's not a condo. So wtf kind of article is this?

wolf said...

The caption read that the condo was "IN THIS BUILDING". Or did you miss that?

DaveLiang said...

Asylem, that condo is defiantely in Toronto, its right next to the Bridle Path and is on Post Rd. (Bridle Path is the most expensive real estate area in Toronto, even more expensive than Rosedale or Forrest Hill). A family friend of ours live there and it really is the nicest condo I've ever beeen in. Private Elevators are shared only with 3 other people (the people above and below your condo.) The condo building is right next to The Crescent School (private prep school) and the Granite Club (exclusive health/social club where players on the Toronto Maple Leafs can be seen sometimes (ie) Wade Belak)

yeah, I know this condo now. He actually changed the picture. Originally, it was a beach with palm trees and a house on the beach.
