An apartment in Toronto’s Midtown neighborhood went for an incredible price of $615,000 in early September. The price for the smaller, 632-square-foot (56 square meter) condo, was $202,000 less than the condo’s sale record.
The condo conversion in the two-story, five-unit building is believed to be the most expensive sale ever in the Canadian city.
The building is called Midtown Row and it’s being developed on the site of the former Chaplin Hotel, with units boasting quartz countertops, floor-to-ceiling windows and Häagen-Dazs access.
It also has an indoor pool and playroom.
Canadian residents, however, must wait until next spring to apply for their unit.
The listing mentions a lengthy list of “extras” a buyer might receive, including a resident concierge, maid service, in-unit laundry, and private parking.
The building’s marketing agent, National Leasing Group, does not respond to a request for more information.
In midtown, two separate residential sales went for between $650,000 and $700,000 for a combined 619 square feet of space.
The apartment price for one unit at Harbourfront was $960,000, but to get this price you will have to believe that your ceiling, the country’s tallest in the city, will be kept high so you’ll feel the view. The actual price, according to listings, is $980,000.
Each room, the listing states, features a “twilight shelf” (eye-catching, for sure) suspended over your home and a lot of upscale finishes. It also boasts some sort of “touch-screen electronics.”
Also in Midtown, units in the 20-story 10 Grey streets is on the market for $1.2 million.
Sold for under $800,000 is a unit at the design-focused Nespresso Creative Labs in Toronto’s Little Italy neighborhood.
