Condo of the Week: $4,990 a month for a penthouse in the thick of Toronto’s evolving waterfront
Address: , Penthouse 39 47 Lower River Street
Neighbourhood: Moss Park
Agent: , Royal LePage Estate Realty, Brokeage Ricky Chadha
The Place: A two-storey, three-bedroom penthouse for lease in Moss Park.
Bragging Rights: The building was completed just last year, so the glass backsplash, quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances are all at their shiniest. Make note: this unit has never been lived in, so there aren’t any previous tenants to blame when you mark-up the hardwood.
Big Selling Point: With plans to develop the well underway, and the Lower Don lands athletes’ village under construction, this neighborhood is set to see an influx of new housing, parks and community spaces in the not-too-distant future. Pan Am Games
Possible Deal Breaker: The unit comes unfurnished, so out-of-towners looking for a rental will have to factor in the cost of moving their old stuff, or purchasing new essentials.
By the Numbers:
• 1,721 square feet
• 7 Juliet balconies
• 3 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 2 parking spots
• 2 storeys
• 1 balcony
• 1 locker

Who the hell is paying you guys to feature these overpriced hovels?
just because you’re not interested
You’re right. I’m sure people are lining up for the privilege of paying five grand a month to live in a hyper-generic faux loft in the ghetto.
P.S. Shame that TL can’t afford to pay interns with all the kickbacks they must receive from the local real estate cabal.
totally on side of Flootie… Crap for $5,000!!! Cuckoobrains you must be the realtor who is pitching this overpriced piece of crap!
that area isn’t ghetto at all there’s so many things in that area I love … for one you’d be so close to distillery and st lawrence market
Downtown Toronto is very sought after by successful professionals who want spacious living without a long commute. Moss Park is not the low rent area of years ago, the new condominium and townhouse buildings on Dundas are an oasis in the big city.

Suck my cock Joseph and take your self promoting website with you.
Who in their right mind would pay $5K for this? The kitchen is pretty basic.
That’s the price you get for living in Toronto and having high end design, with real materials not just like the ones that regular condos have. When you can tell the difference between design you’ll know what I mean.
do you guys even understand what design is? and what living in a spacial space in toronto. Good luck finding something that big and architectural within the city.
This will serve a bigger purpose to all those who are looking for a large condo space within the city. I’m just a student and I have seen condos being developed in Toronto and nothing has been like that so far.
I like it! lots of natural light and very minimal
You’re an idiot.
Real talk, this place looks like three mediocre, generic cookie-cutter condos stitched together and listed for three-and-a-half times what you’d pay for an undesirable 600 sq ft one-bedroom in the undesirable “Distillery District.” Rip-off at half the rent.
Do you actually believe the bullshit you spew?
Ghetto, is moss park, sorry, keep walking for 5 minutes and you will reach regent park, and when the drug addicts from church street and regent park are ready to mug people for drugs they are going to walk 5 minutes down to your building to mug you
5k a month to live in the ghetto, hell no, the building is black, who the hell wants to live in a black building in the most dangerous crime ridden part of toronto?
