Condo Stats – Toronto & Area

analytics

Earlier this year I posted updated statistics for the Grand River and Golden Horseshoe areas. Today, I’m focusing on Toronto and surrounding areas, including York, Peel and Durham.

As of August 8, 2017, Toronto had 2602 condominium corporations. Today, that number has grown to 2714. The last one registered is a 12 floor building with 642 units (about 180 of which appear to be parking or storage units).

As of August 8, 2017, York had 1240 condominium corporations. Today, that number is 1406! The last condominium registered has 372 units.

Peel had 1021 condominium corporations on August 8, 2017. As of today, Peel has 1054 condominium corporations. The last one registered is a mammoth with 975 units over 5 floors (in several buildings).

Finally, as of August 8, 2017, Durham had 285 condominium corporations. While it has the fewest condominium corporations, Durham continues to have impressive growth. It now has 308 condominium corporations. The last registered has 224 units.

As said in previous posts,  the total number is not the number of active condominiums. Some condominiums have been terminated or amalgamated so the “real” numbers are less than those above. I understand the CAO is working on obtaining a list of the “real” number so hopefully it will be able to start releasing statistics to the public soon.

That’s it for now.  Share this post and let me know what area you want statistics for next!

Condo Stats – Golden Horseshoe

analytics

Today, I am going to update a previous post we did on condo stats for the Golden Horseshoe area as I did earlier this week for Grand River. For those unfamiliar with the area, the Golden Horseshoe includes Halton, Hamilton-Wentworth, Niagara, Haldimand, and Norfolk.  In the next few weeks I’ll provide statistics for the other areas of Ontario.

As of June 27, 2017, the Golden Horseshoe had 1665 registered condominium corporations:

  • Halton – 672
  • Hamilton-Wentworth – 552
  • Niagara – 391
  • Haldimand – 17
  • Norfolk – 33

As of January 22, 2019,  the Golden Horseshoe now has 1722 condominium corporations registered:

  • Halton – 695
  • Hamilton-Wentworth – 570
  • Niagara – 401
  • Haldimand – 19
  • Norfolk – 37

As said in my previous post,  the total number is not the number of active condominiums. Some condominiums have been terminated or amalgamated so the “real” numbers are less than those above. Hopefully the CAO will start releasing statistics to the public on the real numbers.

Condo Stats – Grand River Edition

analytics

For any of the self-proclaimed condo geeks out there (I’m thinking of you Jon Juffs), I thought that I would update a post we did previously on condo statistics. As a director for the Grand River chapter of CCI and a resident of the area, it seemed most fitting to start with the Grand River. For those unfamiliar with the area, the Grand River includes Brant, Wellington and Waterloo.  In the next few weeks I’ll provide statistics for the other areas of Ontario.

As of June 27, 2017, the Grand River had 971 condominium corporations registered:

  • Brant – 105
  • Wellington – 237
  • Waterloo Region – 629

As of January 22, 2019,  the Grand River has 1007 condominium corporations registered:

  • Brant – 110
  • Wellington – 249
  • Waterloo 648

It should be noted that the total number is not the number of active condominiums as a few condominiums have been terminated or amalgamated. For instance, I attended a meeting for a Waterloo condominium last night that was created in 2004 when 20 condominiums (ranging in size from 3 units to 16 units) amalgamated into a single condominium. On my wish list is an accurate list of active condominiums for each jurisdiction. Maybe someone at the CAO could help us out?

Apart from the number of condominiums, the trends as far as type, number of units, and style appears to be holding steady. For instance, the last condominium registered in Wellington was a 36 unit townhouse style in Guelph. In my experience, many of the condominiums in Wellington are townhouses; high-rise and single detached condominiums are less common. The last one in Waterloo was a 77 unit low-rise in Waterloo. In Brant, it was a 9 unit vacant land condominium. As a percentage of the total number of condominiums, I suspect that Brant (or possibly  Middlesex) may have the most vacant land condominiums.

That’s it for now.  Share this post and let me know what area you want statistics for next!

 

Condo Stats – Toronto & Area

analyticsSeveral weeks ago I wrote a post about stats on condos in the areas covered by the Golden Horseshoe and Grand River chapters of CCI. I’ve looked up the stats for the Toronto and area chapter. I’ve included the numbers for Toronto, York, Peel and Durham since most members of CCI Toronto appear to be located in one of these areas. The numbers are interesting (spoiler: it isn’t all the megatowers you might expect).

Condo Stats – Grand River & Golden Horseshoe Edition

analytics.jpgAs a self-proclaimed condo geek, I’m always interested in statistics about the condo industry. About a week ago I decided to do a quick search of the electronic land registry system to see how many condominiums were in my area.  I have been known to procrastinate on occasion so I also looked up all of the other counties and regions located with the Golden Horseshoe and Grand River Chapters of CCI. For those interested, the numbers as at June 16, 2017: Continue reading
