Toronto’s First Condominium?

Before Toronto was overwhelmed with the condo craze, most people lived in houses or apartment buildings.

The Masters on Mill road in Etobicoke was one of the first purpose built condos. An ad from Maclean’s magazine from 1976.

Priced from $50,000-$80,000.

 When the condominium concept finally made its way to Ontario in 1968,  Rockport  built the first in Toronto, by converting a 59-unit rental townhouse project already under construction in Rexdale.

Today you can purchase a 300 square foot micro condo for about $250,000.00.

This is progress!
