The place

A three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse occupying half of the 25th floor at Sixty Colborne, a luxury condo building that towers over King and Church. It comes with two parking spots, a locker and 800 square feet of terrace. With a stunning view of downtown’s east end, residents are within walking distance of St. Lawrence Market, Berczy Park’s famous dog fountain, the Financial District and Union Station.

The history

Completed in 2017, Sixty Colborne is the brainchild of Toronto architect Peter Clewes, known for designing the Thompson Hotel (now 1 Hotel Toronto) and Pier 27. The complex remains one of the city’s most expensive real estate properties per square foot. This penthouse has only ever had one owner, and realtor Kimberly Phinney says the place has drawn interest from professional athletes and high-earning businesspeople thanks to its size and location. 

The tour

Sixty Colborne is known for its angled façade.
