The place: A two-bedroom, two-storey penthouse in a five-year-old building.
The history: A decade ago, developers dubbed this project the Bohemian Embassy, in a bid to take advantage of Queen West’s resurgent hipness. Local artist Michael Toke nicknamed the place the “Bohemian Embarrassment.” The name stuck. Sensing a deal, real estate agent Alex Wilson grabbed a penthouse in the building. Now he’s moving on to a bigger space in the same neighbourhood.
Big selling point: The asking price is reasonable for a two-bedroom place in such a sought-after area. Two-bedroom units of similar size in other buildings go for well into the $700,000s.
