Condomonium: $1.65 million for a parkside penthouse in developer Brad Lamb’s King West building
ADDRESS: 25 Stafford Street, Penthouse 906
THE PLACE: This two-level penthouse in the new Parc Lofts building faces Stanley Park, where the King West crowd often congregates for baseball games and puppy watching.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: “Toronto’s Condo King” Brad Lamb is not only the developer and real estate agent, he also lives in the building’s only other penthouse.
BIG SELLING POINT: Since the terrace overlooks Stanley Park, the view is guaranteed. No upstart condos will ever block the light or crowd out the green space below.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Living next to a park could trigger a sense of possessiveness about the public space. You may find yourself shouting, “Get off my lawn!” when park-goers tread to close to the building.
