Alexjwilson.com presents Nobu Condos launching May 30th. Alexjwilson.com explains how Nobu condos will be filling the void in the Toronto luxury condo market. This building will cater to professionals looking for larger spaces and empty nesters relocating to the core looking for a higher standard. Over the past 5 years the demand for larger higher quality units has increased significantly and supply has remained fixed.
