Condo of the Week: $1 million for a penthouse in a St. James Town development with a rooftop pool
The Place: A two-bedroom corner penthouse in The Verve lofts, a mid-rise building attached to a condo tower with a rooftop pool.
Bragging Rights: The building scored a gold certification from the LEED green building rating system, meaning that—in theory, at least—you’ll reduce your carbon footprint while lounging in the living room.
Big Selling Point: The stairway and the breakfast bar mark out distinct areas for the kitchen, dining, and living rooms without sacrificing the open-plan feel.
Possible Deal Breaker: The building has a well-appointed gym, which will make you feel all the more guilty if you hate working up a sweat.
By the Numbers:
• $866.12 in monthly maintenance fees
• 1,600-1,799-square feet
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 parking spots
• 1 rooftop pool in the building
