Real Estate


Condo of the Week: $1.5 million for an extremely curvy penthouse near St. Lawrence Market

Condo of the Week: 1 Market Street,  Unit 3306

Address: 1 Market Street, Unit 3306
Neighbourhood: Waterfront Communities-The Island
Agent: Isaac Quan, Living Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: $1,525,000

The Place: A three-bedroom penthouse on the 33rd floor of the Market Wharf condos, located between the lake and St. Lawrence Market.

Bragging Rights: At 1,220 square feet, the terrace rivals the size of the interior. There’s a hookup for a gas barbecue and space for a good number of chairs—or, if the buyer’s aim is good, he or she might be able to set up a reasonable game of catch.

Big Selling Point: The unit boasts $100,000 in upgrades, including features like custom glass French doors leading outside from the living room. The doors are weighted so that they can be left open in the summer without the wind slamming them shut every few minutes.

Possible Deal Breaker: Anyone who prefers angular rooms may see the rounded, waving exterior wall as an impediment to placing furniture, rather than a unique design quirk.

By the Numbers:

• $1,525,000
• $100,000 in upgrades
• $1,034.17 in monthly maintenance fees
• 1,800 square feet
• 1,220 square foot terrace

    nice.. I would need to spend another $20,000 in getting a designer to really put some colors to this place. The white backdrops are boring. But it seems nice layout though

    Potential Buyers BEWARE: There are only three (3) elevators in this 33-floor building and at any given point in time, one of the elevators is always broken with the second one breaking down every other week… so do the math and keep well away!

    Loved it, it is a lovely place and lots of light even on a grey day. Colour is easily added – paint is inexpensive and easy to apply. I would be very happy there. And the entertaining possibilities in the summer months on the balcony would be very exciting.
