Condo of the Week: $445,000 for a Cinema Tower unit with a quintessential Toronto view
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).
Big Selling Point: Not only is the unit a 10-minute walk from the middle of the financial district, it’s also walking distance from just about every conceivable form of entertainment. The Art Gallery of Ontario, Thompson Hotel, Four Seasons Centre and Rogers Centre are all less than 15 minutes away by foot. Roy Thomson Hall, the Royal Alex and the TIFF Bell Lightbox are even closer, and Ivan Reitman’s restaurant, Montecito, is just downstairs.
Bragging Rights: For days when the owner can’t be bothered to make use of the neighbourhood, the building itself has plenty of entertainment options. There’s a screening room, a lounge and party room, a full-court gymnasium and a light-filled fitness centre with a steam room and hot tub.
Possible Deal Breaker: There isn’t enough room for a dining table, so big dinner parties are out. There is, however, a good-sized quartz island that can fit up to four stools.
