Condo of the Week: $16,000 a month for a suite at a swanky Yorkville address


Address: 10 Bellair Street, Suite 303
Neighbourhood: Yorkville
Agent: Andy Taylor, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage
Price: $16,000/month

The Place: An unfurnished, three-bedroom unit for rent in Yorkville’s No. 10 Bellair Residences. In 2012, we featured a lower penthouse in the building.

Bragging Rights: From the terrace, which overlooks Yorkville Park, the tenant can get a clear view of the scene at Sassafraz. This could be particularly advantageous during TIFF: watch until the crowds clear, then make the 60-second dash to the restaurant’s entrance.

Big Selling Point: Swanky amenities. The building’s four furnished guest suites include a housekeeping service, and the concierge is just as happy to recommend someone to refurbish a handbag as he is to hunt down last-minute Beyoncé (or, you know, Blue Jays) tickets.

Possible Deal Breaker: Tenants can paint the walls if they want, but, as elegant as this place is, it’s still a rental. Everything has to be restored to its original colour scheme at move-out time.

By the Numbers:

• $16,000 per month
• Approximately 3,000 square feet
• 4 washrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 2 parking spaces
• 1 terrace
• 1 balcony
