Toronto suburbs are experiencing a boom in condo project launches and preconstruction sales, as the pandemic’s work-from-home trend entices homebuyers to look outside the city.

Suburban condo projects accounted for 65 per cent of all launches in the Toronto region in the third quarter of this year, according to the latest data from industry research group Urbanation Inc.

This is not the first time suburban condo development has surpassed the city’s but marks the widest margin on record. As well, sales of preconstruction condos more than doubled in the suburbs compared with the third quarter of last year, while sales dropped 16 per cent in the city of Toronto over the same time period.

Target (NYSE:TGT) has long been my favorite retail stock. In 2018 I defended Target stock after an earnings miss. I pounded the table for it in 2019. I called it a cheap stock early in the pandemic.

Investors who have stayed with the company since Brian Cornell became CEO in 2014 have been rewarded. Its strategy of premium house brands, and of clean stores in urban settings, has paid off.
