Condo of the Week
The Place: A family-friendly home in a five-year-old building. The kitchen, dining area and living room are on the unit’s upper level, while the bedrooms and family room are below.
The Place: A compact one-bedroom on the 35th floor of the L Tower, a massive skyscraper that’s just a few hot dog carts away from Union Station.
The Place: A southeast-facing penthouse atop one of North America’s tallest residential buildings.
Big Selling Point: The unit has ultra-luxurious finishes, including Italian-marble counters, heated bathroom floors, a chic limestone fireplace and expensive appliances. There are also snazzy amenities, like a fifth-floor garden and an 18-seat screening room. The Madonna-owned Hard Candy gym is located in the building’s podium.
The Place: A compact one-bedroom halfway up the Cinema Tower, with a balcony offering the quintessential Toronto view (CN Tower, Rogers Centre and Lake Ontario).
The Place: This penthouse was meant to have two bedrooms, but the original owner only had one of them built. As a result, the unit has a spacious living-dining-kitchen area, bathed in loads of light from a 50-foot wall of windows. The building is located in the West Don Lands, just a javelin toss away from the Pan Am Games Athletes’ Village, where 10,000 of the western hemisphere’s fittest people will bunk in July. We featured another of 47 River Street’s penthouses last year.
The Place: A two-bedroom slice of almost-literal heaven in a former Methodist church that was built in 1906 and converted to condos in 2010. There’s an open-concept living room, kitchen and dining area, with bedrooms off opposite sides.
The Place: A two-bedroom pad with a large balcony and lots of luxurious touches, including kitchen cabinetry and a double-sink master vanity by Scavolini.
The Place: A two-bedroom apartment on the fourth floor of a two-year-old building at the centre of Liberty Village. The unit faces north, giving it a view of a little park, rather than the Gardiner Expressway to the south.
