The living area has a fireplace:

Big selling point
If you’re not using the amenities, you’re doing it wrong. The building has a 24-hour fitness centre, a yoga studio, a concierge, a pool, a spa and maid service.
Possible deal breaker
The downside of all those amenities: the monthly maintenance fees are steep, and they don’t include hydro. In a suite like this, with three bathrooms and plenty of space to spare, maybe a couple of high-earning financial workers could split the cost.
By the numbers
• $1,850.08 in monthly maintenance fees
• 1,829 square feet
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 parking spaces
