The place

The top floor of Theatre Park, a condo tower with a swanky sixth-floor pool overlooking the action outside Roy Thomson Hall during TIFF.

The main living area is arranged around a two-sided gas fireplace:

The kitchen is continuous with the living area:

There’s plenty of room for a dining table:

The countertops are Calcatta marble:

There are four bedrooms, all with access to the terrace. Here’s one of them, with a view of the CN Tower:

The history

City planners called the developer’s 2007 proposal to squeeze a 130-metre-tall skyscraper onto an 18-metre-wide lot “inappropriate” and “unsupportable” but—what do you know—the tower topped off seven years later. This penthouse was customized for a couple, who haven’t used it much.

Big selling point

The wraparound terrace is 2,000 square feet. (For a bit of context, consider that the patio at El Caballito’s next door is about 1,800.) It has a barbecue and a wet bar.

Also, a hot tub:

A huge retractable awning:

And even a putting green:

Possible deal breaker

Unlike some other luxury towers, this one doesn’t come with valet service. The unit does come with four parking spaces, though, two of which are accessed by a neat hydraulic lift.
