Looking to keep your living space small and simple?

Living in a studio apartment is great for people who don’t need a lot of “stuff”. Since your kitchen, living room and bedroom are in such close quarters, this kind of unit is perfect if you don’t plan on filling every inch of space with things. There are of course a few other perks to living in one of our studios that you might not have thought of right away too: Continue reading…

8 Questions with…Matt Young

155 Redpath grand opening 10

We’ve already told you about two great people that have helped 155 Redpath sell 70% of the building faster than any other development in the area, and now we want to continue telling you about the great people involved in our project. This week, we spoke with Matt Young, the Vice President of Development at CD Capital, and asked him 8 questions about himself, his hobbies, and his favourite part about our neighbourhood. Check it out.

1. Where’s your favourite lunch spot in the area?
MY: I love Boar Sandwiches. It’s a short walk south of Eglinton and can do no wrong when it comes to a good hearty sandwich. My mouth is wattering thinking about it.
2. How do you stay in shape?
MY: Any mornings I don’t have early meetings I try to get to the gym for a quick workout. I really enjoy rock climbing and snowboarding, so depending on the season that’s where I like to get the blood pumping.
3. What is your favourite radio station?
MY: I bounce between a bunch of stations. Usually top 40 or the edge.
4. Do you use public transit or are you a commuter?
MY: I do a mix. I’m all over the place for meetings, so I plan my mode of transport around the day and where I’m going. If I can avoid my car I do. Driving in the city is painful and I have an innate ability to get ticketed, and towed.
5. What is your favourite food truck in Toronto?
MY: I’m a fan of Fidel Gastro’s. We used them for a community BBQ last summer, and I’ve gotten to know the owner Matt over the past year. Great guy, doing some really interesting things in the culinary world….and the pad thai fries. Wow.

6. What is your favourite Toronto sports team?
MY: Not to be a bandwagoner, but I like winners. The Raptors have ignited a spark in the hearts and minds of Torontonians this year and I’m behind them. Just watched game 5 against the Brooklyn Nets. Talk about exciting!
7. What can’t you leave your house without?
MY: My phone and laptop. I work remotely a lot so I need to be connected.
8. In 140 characters or less tell us what is the best part of Yonge and Eg.
MY: Yonge & Eg is one of the most connected areas of the city in the middle of its renaissance. You get the feeling that this is the future of Toronto.
