A TikToker is going viral after showing off the most poorly designed condo unit she’s ever seen in her career as a real estate agent.
Earlier this week, Toronto-based real estate agent Simona Stallone, who goes by @soldbystallone on TikTok, posted a video captioned, “Found the worst unit in town.”
Stallone does a series called “Rent or Run”, where she reveals the strengths and drawbacks of certain properties in order to help potential renters decide if they want to consider them. And considering the odd design and exorbitant rent of this unit, it certainly gets a special mention.
“So this is 215 Queen Street West – a building that I said I will literally never live in because the units are so poorly designed. It’s a poorly designed building,” Stallone begins.
But very little can prepare you for just how awful it really is.

The unit is as small as an average downtown studio, but has a narrow dividing wall in the middle that awkwardly cuts into the space. Stallone thinks this could have been very deliberate so the unit could be advertised as a bedroom.
As soon as you enter, you see a small dressing room to your right. To your left is the bathroom with shiny, modern fittings – it’s how things actually fit together that’s the issue.
“Let’s take a look and you might tell me if you think there’s anything missing,” Stallone says, with images of the panoramic bathroom aft. “Have you seen it? You’re thinking ‘Simona, where’s the shower?’ Oh, where’s the shower? In the hallway!”
Yeah, just a frosted glass door in the hall, guys. Put a bath mat in front of the front door.
“I’ve never seen this before. The shower is just split. Imagine stepping out of the shower and into your driveway,” Stallone noted. One cheeky commenter pointed out that Toronto realtors would totally advertise this hellscape as having “1.5 bathroom”.
The kitchen situation is also quite dismal. It is not equipped with an oven and only has a hob with two small hobs recessed into the counter – no full range cooker.
There is minimal counter space for you to prep your food as the sink ends up taking up most of the space.
Oh, and our favorite part of the worst condo ever would have to be the exquisite city-view balcony — a tiny, thin scalene triangle with barely enough room for one person to stand on.
“Did they throw darts at the plans? asked a puzzled commenter. “Are they drunk trying to rent a studio with a wall in the middle for $2,400?” wondered another.
Is the unit really the most horrible thing you’ve seen or would you pay $2,400 to live in it? Let us know in the comments.
