Tons of people would. The University of Toronto, the Ontario Legislature, all those hospitals/research institutes, on a subway line? And you get to live on the grandest avenue in the country. Any residential going up on this street are going to be snapped up soooooo fast it will make your head spin.
The Ritz-Carlton is down the street and I believe those started at $1.2 million.
Count me in as someone who'd be thrilled to live here. University Avenue is truly an architectural tour. Not to mention it's a 15 minute walk to King/John, 20 minute walk to UofT, 30 minute walk to Yorkville and only 10 minutes from the Financial District.
The direct subway access is also awesome (especially during the winter or if you're like me and are paranoid of your hair getting messed up on windy days)
To be honest, I was surprised there hasnt been more residential development here.
I think I'd go so far to say that I'd prefer it to Bay Street.
