Who lives where at the Four Seasons Hotel Residences


Toronto condo dwellers have no shortage of buildings to choose from. But, for the city’s wealthiest Internet moguls, old-money heirs and crazy-rich execs, few are as alluring as Yorkville’s Four Seasons, a sleek two-tower complex with sprawling suites, private elevators and an on-site brasserie run by Daniel Boulud. Here, a peek inside one of the city’s priciest condos—and what some residents paid to get in.


The penthouse

The entire 55th floor is one 9,000-square-foot penthouse—the most expensive condo ever sold in Canada. It’s also currently a bargaining chip in a high-stakes divorce between its owners: online advertising tycoon Robert Oesterlund and his estranged wife, Sarah Pursglove, who furnished it with gold-leaf ceilings and a $12,000 taxidermied lion.

Film studio overlord Paul Bronfman purchased a $3.83-million suite in September 2013, bought the unit next door a few months later, then got a permit to combine them into a superunit.
