Condo Corner

Over the last decade, Willowdale has transformed from a predominantly single-family neighbourhood to a bustling centre with plenty of multi-residential buildings lining the streets.  Condo residents now constitute close to 2/3 of my constituents and they deserve current and relevant information about condo living.

Whether you presently live in a condo or are thinking about it buying or renting one, the links below are a good starting basis for gathering useful information on condo living.
