Condomonium: $1.25 million for a Bloor Street suite with a protected view over downtown
ADDRESS: 175 Cumberland Street, Unit 1407
AGENT: Brian Gerstein, Century 21 Heritage Group Ltd.
THE PLACE: A recently renovated two-bedroom suite in the Renaissance Plaza building, which partially surrounds the Church Of The Redeemer on Bloor. The subtle decor of this unit contrasts with the hipper look of a different condo in the building that we featured in April.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Many buildings have amenities like valet parking and an indoor pool, but how many people can say they live upstairs from a Louis Vuitton? The chi-chi shop fronts Bloor Street at ground level.
BIG SELLING POINT: Units on the southwest side of the building are the most coveted, thanks to construction regulations that protect the sight lines over downtown. We’d even argue that the unit’s 14th-floor view of the Royal Ontario Museum tops the view of the museum from the roof.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The city is loft crazy, and buyers keen on 12-foot-high ceilings may look to newer properties to meet their height requirements.
