Deadmau5’s condo is for sale, and this is what it looks like inside
Super-DJ and prog-house producer Joel Zimmerman (better known by his stage name, Deadmau5) bought two penthouses in the Merchandise Lofts building in 2011 and combined them, creating this two-storey, 3,000-square-foot sky villa on Dalhousie Street, just south of Gould. The property has views of the downtown core, and its setup reflects the needs and whims of its owner: one room is given over to a $200,000 studio, a soundproofed space where Mr. Mau5 produced some of his most famous beats. The condo, once the backdrop for countless Instagram posts, now stands nearly empty. That’s because Zimmerman is currently living on a 118-acre estate in Campbellville, Ontario where he’s been known to amuse himself by hunting drones.
Earlier today, the unit went up for sale, with an asking price of $2.5 million. Despite its size, it has a bachelor-pad vibe: it only has two bedrooms, and the building is located on the Ryerson campus, a few blocks away from undergraduate residences. Plus, the condo includes certain mischievous, Mau5-ian touches, including what can only be described as mouse holes: miniature arch-shaped openings bored into the baseboards. From their size, it appears they were designed as passageways for Professor Meowingtons, Deadmau5’s cat.
Here, a peek inside the house of Mau5.
