The Action: It was a year ago when the last unit was sold in La Piazza residence midtown, so pent-up demand helped this one-bedroom-plus-den suite sell within the first 24 hours of its posting.

What They Got: A more than 20-year-old midrise offers 27 two-storey, loft-style suites, such as this 1,057-square-foot model with an open kitchen, living and dining area with 17-foot ceilings, full-height windows and sliding doors to a terrace.

In the past few years, the sellers added a sense of warmth with new hardwood floors in the principal rooms and heated floors in the larger of two bathrooms serving the carpeted den and master suite upstairs.

Ensuite laundry facilities, a locker and parking complete the unit, which has monthly fees of $820, plus heat and hydro.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s a high demand, boutique building near Yonge and Eglinton,” agent Daniel Bloch said. “It offers the space which you can’t get in that part of the city.”

In particular, this unit’s open, urban design was a rare treat. “You’ve got nice, high ceilings so you can put a lot of artwork up,” Mr. Bloch said.

“It looks out onto a really nice courtyard, so you’re in the tree canopy.”
