At Livabl, we’re often writing in our Buyer Guides about how first-time homebuyers can break into the housing market. But sometimes it’s okay to window shop. And Toronto’s ever-evolving skyline of glass and concrete provides a lot to look at. Here, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive condos listed on the Toronto Real Estate Board’s online service.
The price: $12,900,000
The condo: Not quite a penthouse — it’s a “sub penthouse” — this sprawling 3,750-square-foot-plus aerie takes up nearly half the 32nd level of the Four Seasons Private Residences. Being attached to a luxe Yorkville hotel has perks. The suite’s owners will get full access to all the amenities, from the 3,400-square-foot fitness centre to the spa and pool. That is, if they can pry themselves away from sweeping views taken in from the 12-foot-high windows or two terraces. (The bright turquoise kitchen might not be to everyone’s taste.)
The price: $8,800,000
The condo: Another Yorkville offering, this time in an older condo building dating back to the early-’80s. The 5,240-square-foot suite is the result of earlier work to turn three residences into one. The corner suite’s terrace alone is an impressive 810 square feet. Some of the finishes may be a little dated, but whoever can afford the $4,861.73 in monthly maintenance fees can probably take on a pretty considerable reno.
The price: $8,800,000
The condo: Surprise, it’s Yorkville again, and also another condo-hotel hybrid building. Located on the third level of the Hazelton Private Residences — which has a boutique feel with only 16 residential units total — this 4,240-square-foot home boasts planked walnut hardwood floors, crown mouldings, lofty 10-foot ceilings and private elevator access.
The price: $8,100,000
The condo: The Prince Arthur Condos by Minto was completed about 20 years ago in Yorkvile, but it’s safe to assume the 4,370-square-foot Penthouse 1 has gotten a refresh since then. Gourmands should appreciate built-in stainless-steel appliances with a gas cooktop and a wine fridge, too. It’s also got real entertaining potential, with three fireplaces, five balconies, and a built-in sound system. The amenities aren’t too shabby either, including a steam room, gym, party room and valet parking.
The price: $7,250,000
The condo: Looking for luxury outside Yorkville and its Mink Mile? How about a two-floor unit by the waterfront, complete with its own elevator leading to a private sky pool and spa? Perched on the 54th and 55th floors of the aptly named Success Tower by Pinnacle, Suite 5401 stretches across more than 6,000 square feet, including 1,490 square feet of outdoor space. The seller is throwing in all the furniture as well.
