Condo of the Week: $1.7 million for a two-level loft in the former Imperial Oil headquarters
A new two-level suite on the ninth floor of Imperial Oil’s former headquarters, near St. Clair subway station.
The 1957 building was converted into Imperial Plaza, a condo complex. This unit’s owner, who is also the listing agent, bought pre-construction in 2010. By the time the condo was ready for occupancy, he was engaged and living downtown. He briefly leased the place to a University of Toronto professor, then decided to put it on the market.
