TOWER TRIP Magazine: We recently compiled a list of what $1 million can buy you in the Montreal real estate market. We decided to play the same game for Toronto and browse through the listings of most realty firms. But since property values — and especially prices for detached and semi-detached houses — have soared in Toronto in recent years, we had to adjust our range to $3.5 million to $5 million.

Note that these properties are not solely selected according to their prices, but by their uniqueness, their location and their interesting features. Enjoy!

This (pre-construction) condo at 10 York Street

Every so often a building captures the imagination. This one is a 224-metre (735-foot) glass vision in the sky, "rising above it all," as the developer says. Of course it's not built yet, but this is the kind of investment opportunity that can pay off big when completed. More details and renderings here.
