Parkville? Kensington!? $1.083M

Brooklyn Properties is listing the new Foster-East condos located in Parkville, ugh sorry Kensington.... We love how brokers are always clearing this up for us. We also love the panoramic views and juliet balconies and the fact that unlike most of Parkville damn, sorry Kensington these 2 beds are going for a whooping $470K. That's the cheap one folks!

We'll never understand how a kitchen and a living space in the same room will command these sorts of prices when you could easily buy a pre-war some place on Ocean Pkwy and do renovations that would cost less. Most pre-wars have smallish but still eat-in kitchens and separate living rooms which we find much more appealing. (We don't want to look at our kitchen sink every time we sit on the couch). Hey, what do we know! The real Parkville condos are actually almost sold out with only 2 (compared to the five we mentioned yesterday) still available. (Thanks to the tipster who cleared that up for us!)
