Condo of the Week: $6.5 million for a King West sky mansion with an infinity pool


Address: 500 Wellington Street West, Unit 701
Neighbourhood: King West
Agent: Jonathan Ferrier, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $6,500,000

The Place: A luxury full-floor unit with private elevator access in a boutique King West building.

The History: This 10-storey tower, completed in 2011, was voted Best Residential Building at the 2013 Pug Awards. With only 17 units in the building, snagging a spot here is a rarity—although the third floor and penthouse units have both been on the market in the past few years. The original owner of this particular unit purchased it as a raw concrete shell and customized the layout with a built-in aquarium, home theatre and large open-concept space for a personal gym and games room.

Big Selling Point: With a 16-person dining area, glass-enclosed wine cellar, custom outdoor kitchen and infinity pool, this place can definitely handle a party.

Possible Deal Breaker: A romantic dip under the city lights is one of the perks of having a terrace pool, but with three floors of similar terraces up above, the new owner may not have the most privacy.
