Condomonium: $1 million for a 40th-floor corner suite near Bloor and Jarvis

ADDRESS: 110 Charles Street East, Unit 4002

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Church-Yonge Corridor

AGENTS: Cameron Weir and Scott Hanton, Keller Williams Advantage Realty

PRICE: $1,049,000

THE PLACE: A two-bedroom corner suite in the X Condos, just off Bloor and Jarvis. Peter Clewes of Architects Alliance designed the tower, which was reportedly a homage to modern architecture master Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The living and kitchen space is more than 41 feet long, which is enough room to set up some pretty ambitious buffet tables. (Can you say party sub?)

BIG SELLING POINT: If seeing the city from 40 floors up is still not high enough, the building has a rooftop garden and pool on the 44th floor.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The futuristic red chair in the living area is the perfect perch from which to look down on Toronto and plan a takeover—but the unit doesn’t come furnished.
