Condomonium: $2.3 million for a four-bedroom penthouse in the Spire
ADDRESS: 33 Lombard St., Suite 4501
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Church-Yonge Corridor
AGENT: Todd Sloan, Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc.
THE PLACE: Located in a historic quarter of downtown, sitting across the street from St. James Cathedral and steps away from St. Lawrence Market, this four-bedroom penthouse in the Spire is wrapped in terraces and windows providing a 360-degree bird’s eye view of Toronto.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The building won an Urban Design Award of Excellence in 2009—heck, even the Toronto Star’s fusty architecture columnist Christopher Hume gave it an A grade—not to mention that every room comes with a view (there’s even a view from the tub, where you can float above the city).
THE BIG SELLING POINT: Most downtown homes have limited space to raise a growing brood, but with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms and a massive kitchen island, this condo has enough space to allow you to both live in the city core and comfortably raise a family.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With floor-to-ceiling windows, the dizzying heights of the 45th-floor penthouse are hard to ignore. Not recommended for those who experience vertigo easily.
