Stinson Mansion at 109 Ontario is sold as of today for $765,000. A big drop from the initial asking of almost $900,000.

One more step towards completion of the Gibson and Beasely Lofts I suppose.

Stinson gets some well deserved criticism, but I really do hope to see all his projects succeed. He does a good job at incorporating the character of these heritage properties into his units, and even if some of the final finishes such as flooring and cabinets are nothing special he at least deserves commendation for preserving these heritage buildings. The kitchens can and will always be replaced eventually, it's the brickwork and such that will last. We have too few developers dedicated to adaptive re-use to chase any of them out of town.

Wow, I know he got offered more than that some time ago and turned it down. Guess he is realizing the market isn't quite there yet. Plus the layout is beyond terrible. It's essentially a 2 bedroom with an attic.

I know his main sales agent Daniel, I actually think he is very good, he pushes back to Harry to help him see the actual market.

That is actually much more than I thought it was going to do. It is such an odd layout inside, that won't work for families.

Is it worth looking at the Beasley Condo's for a first time buyer to rent out for a year? I'm in no rush to move out of where I am now, but obviously the sooner i can rent it out the better. But setbacks won't kill me.

Definitely avoid it, 100%. I don't see it being complete for another 5+ years. There are too many problems with Stinson Properties' last development for me to ever recommend one of their developments.

There are better options for a first time buyer that are already under construction, or starting construction this year. I'd recommend checking out these developments, in this order:

1) Residences of the Royal Connaught | 36/24/21/14 Floors | Under Construction

2) Vista Condos | 6/6/5 Floors | Site Preparation

3) 20/22 George Street | 33 Floors | Under Construction


Edit:

I'm going to add this too:

4) Television City Condos | ? Floors | Proposed

^ First images of that development are being revealed on May 1. You can't go wrong with that developer.

Queen is, yeah I forgot they switched to rentals at the last minute. I removed that from my post. 20/22 George is condos though.

Interesting that George is condos when Vranich originally billed Regency and 150 main as condos and apparently turned them all to rentals.

Any movement on this project?

Other projects seem to get a lot of news and move forward is this still just standing still?

The school that he bought years before this at Barton and Gibson is still sitting in exactly the same condition as it has been since he bought this thing so... there you go.

Pretty sure I already said it back when he bought this place a few years ago but I'm sure we'll be seeing a for sale sign back up on this place within the next 5 years.
