The National Post of Toronto has an article about condo buyers who are seeking properties overlooking cemeteries. With parks in short supply and land at a premium, the cemetery has become an attraction for builders in Toronto. Condominiums now line the area around the Mount Pleasant cemetery, one of North America's finest arboretums. Sculptures abound at the cemetery and, of course, there is no shortage of flowers. Other city cemeteries are also attracting condo builders.
