Condo of the Week: $430,000 to live in a tower designed by Daniel Libeskind

Condo of the Week: $430,000 to live in a tower designed by Daniel Libeskind

Address: 8 The Esplanade, Unit 3501 Neighbourhood: Waterfront Communities-The Island
Agent: Cory Wong, Trustwell Realty Inc., Brokerage Price: $429,000

The Place: A compact one-bedroom on the 35th floor of the L Tower, a massive skyscraper that’s just a few hot dog carts away from Union Station.

Big Selling Point: For a small unit, the kitchen is impressive. The cabinets are by Munge Leung, the built-in appliances by Miele, and the marble countertop is big enough for three stools.

Bragging Rights: The L tower was designed by an architectural auteur, Daniel Libeskind, who also worked on the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal at the ROM, the Jewish Museum in Berlin and One World Trade Center in New York. The architect’s vision is reflected in this unit’s off-kilter shape.

Possible Deal Breaker: The apartment faces south toward Lake Ontario, but another skyscraper already blocks most of the view. Oh well. The owner can always get their water fix by making the 10-minute stroll to Harbour Square Park and the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal—which will soon, hopefully, be even nicer than they already are.

By the Numbers:

• $429,000 • 614 square feet inside • $300 per month in maintenance fees, approximately • 58-storey building • 25-square-foot balcony, approximately • 9-foot ceilings • 1 bathroom • 1 bedroom • 0 parking spaces
