Real Estate


Condomonium: $1.7 million for a slick unit in the Thompson owned by an MTV exec

ADDRESS: 55 Stewart Street, Unit 438

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Waterfront Communities-The Island

AGENT: Brandon Ware, Private Service Realty

PRICE: $1,689,900

THE PLACE: A three-bedroom condo created out of two suites in the Thompson Hotel and Residences. The unit comes with room service, maid service and the potential to schmooze with rap stars and the prime minister during TIFF.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The current owner is Jon Graham, the general manager at MTV Networks Canada. Feel free to indulge in some rampant speculation as to which reality TV notables and pop stars have clinked glasses on the balcony.

BIG SELLING POINT: You won’t have to search for a couch that matches the orange-red lights in the living space, since all the furniture is included.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Though the unit has three bedrooms, there’s something about the space that suggests a swanky bachelor pad. We suspect women in the market for a new space may want to make some tweaks.
