Barra Castle on Queen | ? m | 7 fl | Proposed
I'll be interested to hear how sales go. I had doubts about whether this project would ever see the light of day. I'm glad I'm wrong.

VIP sales start Friday @ 5 @ the Tannery

I'm curious to see how it does. It seems like a good middle ground between 4 storey surface parking condos on the outskirts that Reid's is doing and the huge 20 storey towers in the core everyone else is doing. I often think this community skipped a step and just jumped to sky scrapers.

There was the Red, the 42, BPR Lofts, The Cortes on King, and now Midtown Lofts and that project on Walter St that are all mid rise.

This doesn't include many of the mid rise apartments built in Northdale before the switch to high rises.

How many units still available, I wonder?

Not sure why but I don't think this project is getting the same buzz as other downtown projects.

I hope the sale goes well.

Based on what?   They have been doing a lot of positive advertising. We will need to see the sales before we can comment with any certainty.

I stopped by today. Most of the 6th floor is sold including all of the south-facing units. Lower floors have a few units sold each.

One thing I thought is interesting - they have 9 pairs of 1 bedroom units that can be combined into 2+dens.

Apparently they are at about 40% now. The salesperson said that the houses on the Benton side of the property are to be demolished soon. I suppose they could start constructions with the townhouses, but so far only one out of the seven townhouses is sold, so it doesn't seem to make sense.

I think I would prefer a north (really north-east) facing unit anyway, the other side tends to get very warm. Although admittedly it's not really clear how much heat will come through Barra's windows.
