Condomonium: $795,000 for a sub-penthouse suite in Seventy5 Portland, with common space designed by Philippe Starck
ADDRESS: 75 Portland Street, Unit 904
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Waterfront Communities—The Island
AGENT: Brandon Ware and Lee Michael Colucci, Private Service Realty Ltd.
THE PLACE: The 11-storey Seventy5 Portland is another project from Freed Developments, the company behind the Thompson Residences and Fashion House condos. The sub-penthouse has an open-concept layout and polished, sealed concrete ceilings.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Drop the name Philippe Starck and local design groupies are sure to get hot and bothered. The French designer lent his world-renowned touch to the building’s common spaces, including the lobby and the atrium. The residence is also the first Canadian project from Yoo Ltd., the London-based firm Starck heads.
BIG SELLING POINT: The endless table that stretches from the main lobby to the inner courtyard. Flanked by oversized planters, the 100-foot long surface brings an Alice in Wonderland feel to King West. Since the courtyard can be rented for private functions, it’s easy to imagine throwing the swankiest mad tea party ever here.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Call us prudes, but the open-concept master bathroom trend in condos is a touch off-putting.
