$3,515 (2017) DAYS ON THE MAR­KET Four


Jen Tripp and Bill An­dreadakis, HomeLife/Realty One Ltd. The Ac­tion: Built next to an 18acre park, Ca­nary Park suites spent an av­er­age of 38 days on the mar­ket this sum­mer. That time­line was ac­cel­er­ated for this staged, two-bed­room-plus-den suite, which was pur­chased by a res­i­dent in the same build­ing in Au­gust. What They Got: At the north­east­ern cor­ner of a fairly new two-tower com­plex is this 1,067-square-foot unit de­signed around open en­ter­tain­ing and cook­ing quar­ters. The for­mer has bal­cony ac­cess and the lat­ter out­fit­ted with cus­tom back­splashes, quartz coun­ters and in­te­grated stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances. On the op­po­site ends of the unit, both bed­rooms fea­ture hard­wood floors and his and her clos­ets. The master also con­tains one of two bath­rooms. Monthly fees of $712 cover water, 24-hour concierge and up­keep of ameni­ties, such as a rooftop pool with a juice bar. The Agent’s Take: “So of­ten in th­ese units, it’s like a bowl­ing al­ley, but this one, you came into a lit­tle foyer and it open to a very pretty liv­ing room and din­ing room,” Ms. Tripp said. “[Plus] it has quite a beau­ti­ful view over the new park, Cork­town Com­mon.”

Buy­ers also got an ecofriendly bonus by its park­ing spot. “I did not re­al­ize how unique the elec­tric-car hookup was un­til now as I am try­ing to find an­other condo with an EVC [elec­tri­cal ve­hi­cle charg­ing] out­let. They are few and far between,” Ms. Tripp said.

“We went to mar­ket about the same time as Volvo and Tesla an­nounced in the same week that they were mass-pro­duc­ing elec­tric cars, so it was very top of mind,” she added.
