Am I figuring it right that this is going to cost $800,000ish plus added property taxes and insurance? Thats what $5-6K a month?

Welcome to the Great White North.
If we aren't paying twice as much as the average American pays we aren't paying enough. ](*,)

Considering he already owns the land that might be 4X of what we pay around here. My rent on a prime location stand alone (prime) building with 4300ft with its own 20 car parking lot is $2200 a month locked in for 5 years with 5% per annum increases after that and the landlord also covers the water and trash bill.
