Condo of the Week: $9 million for a two-storey suite near the top of the Shangri-La

Address: 180 University Avenue, Unit 6002
Neighbourhood: Financial District
Agent: Howard K. Lende, Forest Hill Real Estate Inc., Brokerage
Price: $9,000,000

The place: A five-star suite on the 60th and 61st floors of the 66-storey Shangri-La.

The history: The selling agent says the owner works in the film industry and has hosted a few exclusive TIFF parties since moving here three years ago. Guests are said to have included showbiz royalty like actors James Franco, Paul Sorvino and Mischa Barton, heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis and singer Diana Ross. Also, actual royalty: Albert II, Prince of Monaco.

Big selling point: A 20-foot wall of windows allows for spectacular views of the CN Tower and Lake Ontario from both levels of the suite.

Possible deal breaker: There are one, two, three…four balconies, but no large terrace. Sunbathers will have to make do with the hotel’s shared sundeck.
