North of Brooklyn Pizzeria

North of Brooklyn Pizzeria

Pizza is my crack. Plain and simple… It’s so bad, I sometimes wonder if I was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in my previous life! It’s only natural that when I stumbled upon North Of Brooklyn Pizzeria, the moon hit my eye like a big pizza pie – and that my friends was amore!

Finding NOBP is a bit tricky since it’s mailing address listed at 650.5 Queen Street West, yet the entrance is just north of that on Palmerston Ave. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you spot the Broadway inspired signage (pictured above) along the wall! It’s a cozy little spot with seating for about 12 people and standing room only after that. The spot is industrial looking, but very welcoming – with polished concrete floors, caged lights and accents of reclaimed wood throughout. Everything is done literally in-front of the customers, a big plus in my books, that add’s to the ambiance of eating in a pizza shop!

I’m not a fan of some of these “fancy pants” places that offer a selection of toppings that smoother the essence of traditional pizza. For me, I like things simple but good and NOBP is exactly that.  During this visit, I went with the standard pepperoni and cheese – Sauce, Mozzarella, Pepperoni and Oregano. You can order by the slice ($4.20) or pizza ($20), I went with the slice.  For the individual slices, you can’t add toppings but with the full pies you can!

It was just the right size level of thickness. The ingredients strong, but not overpowering. And the sesame seed on the crust – so good!

Perfect for a quick slice or full pie  you can’t go wrong picking up a slice of Za from NOBP. They do deliver (check map) and are open from 12-10pm Monday-Friday and 12-9 on Sunday. I suggest going in-person as they’ve always got some great tunes playing in store… and I like my pizza’s hot!

Sage Real Estates Downtown Office

Sage Real Estate Downtown Office

New brokerage, New diggs!!!

When I considered changing brokerages, having a downtown location was key! I wanted a place with a cool look, good vibe, and convenient location.  The timing couldn’t have been better as Sage Real Estate was just planning on opening their Downtown Location… all it took was one meeting in the new place and I was sold!

Located at 777 Richmond St (Queen and Niagara), the office is perfectly located for meeting with clients downtown!  Tucked in-between Queen West and King West, there’s no shortage of coffee shops for talks or restaurants for celebrations… I may have even already taken a quick cat nap at Trinity Bellwoods park!

Sage Real Estate Office

Located in an converted industrial building, the look is one of reclaimed wood, high ceilings and big bold doors! The office has an open concept layout with a private room for discussions.  I knew it was the perfect fit for me when I walked in to find two similar looking items from a previous Must Have Monday post – the aviator chair and table!

It seems like every time I step into the office I notice another detail!  The walls are home to pictures of a nostalgic Toronto, with sights of the old airport and skyline. A very old map of the City hangs by the kitchen area as a reminder for what we came from!

Sage Downtown Office

As antique as the place looks… it’s really anything but!  We’re fully hooked up with wireless printers, office wifi, and an Apple TV which is crucial for presentations. Of course in true Sage fashion… the TV isn’t in just “any” room, it’s at the head of a reclaimed bowling alley – complete with pins!

Origami Lofts By Symmetry Developments For Sale

Origami Lofts Save your mega launches, super high rises and over hyped projects for the other brokers… my heart (and money) is on Origami Lofts by Symmetry Developments!  For months I’ve gearing up for the launch of this unique condo, and finally the day has arrived. Origami Lofts Rising a humble 7 storeys and featuring only 23 units, Origami Lofts gets it’s inspiration and form from the ancient art of Japanese paper folding.  Located at 202 Bathurst St at Wolseley just north of Queen West, Origami lives up to it’s name in every sense of the development.  The exterior breaks the mold of the conventional simple/square/boxey design and emphasises an array of angels mixed with a zinc and glass cladding! The creativity and ingenuity continues on the inside with a collection of single storey lofts from the 2nd to 5th level!  I was very impressed to see how well layed out the floorplans were.  Each level contains only 4 units per floor, giving residents the privacy and intimacy one should expect in boutique project like this! The sixth and seventh levels are home to only 4 penthouse suites.  Each two level unit also has large terraces exclusively for their use. The penthouses range from 935 to 983 sq.ft. and each have two bedrooms and two bathrooms! I had the privilege of getting an early peak into the sales centre and was very impressed with the type finishes Symmetry is offering.  You get all the standards: 9ft ceilings (in principal rooms), pre-finished floors, tiles in bathroom etc etc… BUT on top of that they’re also offering an optional chalkboard wall (you’d be surprised how handy these can be), full sized stacked washer and dryer, BBQ connection on all terraces and balconies, corian counter-tops, glass mosaic back-splash AND integrated dishwasher and hood fan.
