Toronto condo exposure

I’m looking to rent a condo downtown and I’m stuck between two options:
1. South facing condo, 475 sq feet, 20th floor, direct view of CN tower
2. North east corner unit with big windows, 15th floor, 600 sq feet, $20 cheaper

If you were in my position what would you choose? I’m just learning about exposure and sunlight and I’m worried the second one will be too gloomy but I love the layout so much more and the fact that it’s a corner unit

Nort East gets sunlight morning and evening in summer. I find that nice as it does not heat up during summer and you can actually enjoy balcony and keep curtains open. South facing can have sunlight during whole day which may force you to keep curtains on.

if it's me I would take the south facing one. It's nice to have the entire day of balanced sun light.

I'd go with more space, esp if you work from home.

To me, I find direction and many other factors to be quite superfluous and kinda unimportant, even the floor level unless it's very extreme. As such, it's a no-brainer to get the cheaper yet larger/better layout one.
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.
