Rental of the Week: $9,500 per month to live in the tallest residential building in the country
A furnished three-bedroom condo in the tallest residential building in Canada.
The owners, a family, started living in this corner unit as soon as the 79-storey Aura building was completed in 2014. Most two-level units at Aura have open bedrooms overlooking the main floor, but the owners made sure all the bedrooms in this suite were enclosed for privacy.

There’s a Murphy bed in the library:
A little office nook perched above the ground floor:
And there are two proper bedrooms. Here’s one of them:
And the master bedroom:
The master ensuite:
The dining room’s “living wall” comes with a built-in pump system that waters more than 100 individually potted plants:
And the owners installed soundproofing under the main floor for the grand piano, so disturbing downstairs neighbours won’t be an issue:
Possible deal breaker
The 21-foot ceilings allow for lots of open space and natural light, but this suite, like all upper-level units at Aura, has no balcony.
