The place

The history

In 2009, Cityzen Development Group completed this 33-storey building, which has more than 400 units. The seller spent more than $1 million building this penthouse suite, which is flooded with natural light, owing to the staircase skylight, floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors that open to the 1,000-square-foot terrace.
