The buyers already own the neighbouring penthouse suite, so they considered this a golden opportunity to nab more living space, along with unobstructed southwest views of the city and 1,400 square feet of wrap-around balcony space. With the condo board’s approval, they should be able to combine the two units.
The agents priced the unit at $2,350,000, figuring its large floor plan and penthouse prestige would lure in some high rollers. In the end, though, the neighbours’ offer, for $150,000 under asking, was the only one.
