The developer behind MuseumHouse on Bloor did not have to ask twice when they offered us a tour of the immaculate penthouse located on the 19th and 20th floors.

With dazzling views of the ROM, the University of Toronto, the city’s skyline and Bloor and Yonge, the future residents of the penthouse may find themselves frequently opting for the windows instead of the television.

The penthouse itself was quite a spectacular sight as well with its 5,700 square feet of interior living on two levels and 1,310 square feet of exterior space throughout the 4 terraces. The space remains unfinished so the buyer can complete to his/her own taste.

The Yorkville Corporation also set us up with the best tour guide we could hope for, Sol Wassermuhl, president of Page + Steele – IBI Group Architects.

Wassermuhl is the mastermind behind MuseumHouse on Bloor‘s stand-out architecture and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the development.

While taking us through the penthouse, Wassermuhl described the interior design competition the developer organized to dream up forward-thinking ideas for the interior of the suite. Powell and Bonnell were eventually chosen to helm the design of the penthouse.

“Powell and Bonnell came up with beautifully rendered plans and traditional rooms; it was really well done,” said Wassermuhl.

The architect also extolled the virtues of life along Bloor Street near Avenue Road, a strip that has seen a significant amount of development over the past decade.

“Work on the block is nearly complete,” he said, “and thanks to the ROM and University of Toronto campus directly across the street, the south facing views at MuseumHouse are basically safe forever.”

Wassermuhl also took us through the model suite, but we’re saving those photos for another day. Until then, enjoy the incredible views on offer at the penthouse of MuseumHouse on Bloor
