Notice the question-mark, instead of the exclamation-mark.
The question here is: would a condo-buyer make his or her purchase decision based on the building’s proximity to a dog-park? What if that dog park is literally across the street?
We may live in a “me-first” society, but we often go well out of our way for our canine friends.
I think a lot of people are going to be attracted to this new development on the downtown’s east side….
Perhaps not the most visual masterpiece I’ve ever created, but you get the point!
I never had a pet, until about four years ago.
I never understood what all the fuss was about.
Now that I have a dog, I wonder how we ever lived without one.
My wife and I often ask each other, “What did we do before Bella? Was it just the two of us? What the hell did we talk about?”
So now being part of the “dog culture,” I see how much time, effort, energy, and money people will put into their pets.
Dog-walking is a massive business in the downtown core, and owners will routinely spend $10,000 per year on their dogs.
So is it unreasonable to assume that a condo-buyer would be attracted to a building specifically because it’s across from a dog park?
It’s not crazy, considering people will buy in a building with direct subway access, or on a strip of retail that offers other conveniences like coffee, groceries, restaurants, et al.
I’ll be shocked if Great Gulf Homes doesn’t market the dog park as a major feature when these units go on sale.
And now since we’re on the subject of dogs, here are a few recent photos of Bella:
