House of the Week: $1.9 million for a condo atop the TIFF Bell Lightbox
ADDRESS: 80 John St, Unit 4202
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Waterfront Communities–The Island
AGENT: Winnie Lam and Kennedy Ho, Sultan Realty Inc., Brokerage
THE PLACE: A giant, 2,173-square-foot condo sitting in the new Festival Tower atop the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Keeping with the cinema theme, each room is named after a famous movie star—this particular one happens to be the Hoffman model.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: For the next 10 days, you have a front-row seat to the hottest event in the city, the Toronto International Film Festival. Don’t miss the chance to step out onto your balcony and pretend the hordes of people below are your own adoring fans.
BIG SELLING POINT: All the bells and whistles of hotel living, only in your own downtown condo—including an indoor pool, 24-hour concierge, 55-seat cinema and rooftop terrace.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: This place brings new meaning to the word stark—everything is white. If you’re a fan of colour, you’re going to have to host a few painting parties.
