Where to start with this one? I have an example of dodgy marketing techniques and truely ridiculous photoshopping that I stumbled across on the weekend.
A new condo build is going up on the site of the old Chum radio building in Toronto around St. Clair and Yonge. The Chum building is an ugly, squat little site, so anything will be an improvement. The new owners are marketing it as upscale, exclusive living in a hip, urban neigbourhood... which makes me snort with laughter. Great neighbourhood, don't get me wrong. Wonderful as a matter of fact. Good places to eat, grocery stores, clean, parks, two subway stops within walking distance etc, but the people who live around here tend to be pretty down to earth and quite honestly, hip we ain't. I've been watching people come out of the sales office and stroll down the street to check out the neigbourhood. Some have looked at the apartment building south east of the Chum building with a bit of consternation and confusion. That's been happening off and on for months now so on the weekend I began to wonder why.Add a comment
