In Toronto real estate, condos tend to be the most-affordable options for first-time buyers looking to enter the housing market. These 10 units are not.
Check out the most expensive condo apartments listed on the Toronto Real Estate Board MLS at the moment.
10. 77 Avenue Road, Penthouse 6, Annex — $5,199,000
One thing buyers often have to sacrifice with condo ownership is private outdoor space, at least of the type most low-rise homes provide. Not so with Penthouse 6 at Hazelton Lanes. The suite doesn’t only boast over 1,700 square feet of secluded space under the sky — not unheard of for a penthouse — it’s also landscaped, giving it the appearance of a backyard, but with the views from a mid-rise perch.
9. 50 Yorkville Ave., Suite 3603, Annex — $5,399,000
At $5,399,000, Suite 3603 is the cheapest of three units at the exclusive Four Seasons Hotel and Residences by Lifetime Developments and Menkes Developments Ltd. to make our list. After riding a private elevator up to the three-bedroom unit, you’ll find touches like a chef’s kitchen clad in marble, spa-like baths (also marble) and library (of unlisted material origin).
8. 500 Wellington St. W., Suite 701, Waterfront — $5,999,900
Wood finishes throughout give suite 701 a timeless appearance, but undeniably it’s a modern home: Suite 701 has been given a tech overhaul with the installation of a complete automation system. The 5,065-square-foot unit in 500 Wellington West, a boutique building from Freed Developments, takes up an entire floor and has an “aquarium-style infinity pool,” secondary kitchen outdoors, and what is being pitched as an “architecturally-inspired wine cellar,” so your vintages will look good, too.
7. 10 Bellair Street, Suite 608, Annex — $5,999,999
What’s most impressive about this unit may not be housed inside of it. Every resident calling 10 Bellair home gains access to a near-endless list of special services, including 24-hour valet parking and even in-house car-detailing. “From dog walkers to cut-steel handbag restorers, we can assist with any request,” reads 10 Bellair’s website. As maintenance fees come in at $5,100 a month, unbridled access to a team of servants almost seems reasonable.
6. 16 Harbour Street, Suite 5401, Waterfront — $7,250,000
You could say this is what success looks like. Spread out across the 54th and 55th floors of The Palatial Collection at Success Tower by Pinnacle International, suite 6002 features an indoor sky-pool with a spa and an internal elevator connecting its two floors. The seller is throwing in all their furniture, too.
5. 180 University Avenue, Suite 6002, Bay Street Corridor — $9,000,000
This high-rise home is known as the “Celebrity Suite,” and that’s fitting. If you can afford the multi-million-dollar two-floor condo in the Shangri-La by Westbank, it’s unlikely you keep a low profile. While it has the requisite private terraces and ensuites that are givens at this price point, there is one finish that can’t be found anywhere else: a massive (roughly 20-foot-tall) painting of an ancient Roman athlete by contemporary Italian artist Alessandro Bianchi.
4. 80 Yorkville Ave., Penthouse 1, Annex, $12,900,000
Topping off The Residences of 80 Yorkville Avenue, this custom-built penthouse sprawls over 5,600 square feet, or an entire floor. The smooth, expansive interior features high-end crema marfil tiling, direct elevator access, built-in Bowers-Wilkins speakers, and elegant, crystalline Schonbek lighting fixtures, among other features.
3. 50 Yorkville Ave., Suite 5002, Annex — $13,000,000
“The living spaces were conceived and organized as a series of gathering places,” reads the listing for suite 5002, which occupies the 50th floor of the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences. That, and as a place for the ultra-wealthy to dwell, of course. From the inside of this bespoke abode, residents can take in 360-degree views of Yorkville and beyond.
2. 50 Yorkville Ave., Suite 2401, Annex — $13,495,000
A 2,000-plus-square-foot terrace wraps around the perimeter of suite 2401, also located in the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences. The 3,843-square-foot unit has his and her ensuite baths, spacious library with double-sided fireplace, and a chef’s dream kitchen. It’s also still got that new condo smell — nobody has ever lived here before.
1. 88 Davenport Road West, Penthouse 3, Annex — $15,800,000
This unit atop The Florian by Diamante Development Corporation isn’t just the highest-priced condo up for sale in Toronto at the moment — it’s also one of the most expensive homes, period (in fact, by late last month it was sixth priciest). Finishes like mother of pearl inlays, venetian plaster, and marble don’t come cheap.
