Luxury Living: Sweet suites await you -- but not for long
1 October 2010
Canwest News Service

Toronto's prospective condo buyers are perched in the proverbial lap of luxury. Whether they're downsizing from a large home and seeking an equally extravagant dwelling or moving up to a bigger and better space, luxurious abodes are available in high-end developments throughout the city. "The condo market is fantastic. We've seen near-record highs in the market overall during the past year and there's great opportunity in the luxury market," says Ben Myers, executive vice-president of Urbanation, which tracks Toronto's high-rise condo market. Barry Lyon, president of N. Barry Lyon Consultants, a Toronto real estate consulting firm, also gives a nod to luxury developments. "Choice is abundant, and quality and design standards are excellent," Mr. Lyon says. "Luxury condos are all about ease of lifestyle and the ultimate in convenience." Impressive developments are under construction around the city and, while many units have sold, many lavish suites and penthouses are still available.

TRUMP TORONTO

The first Trump property in Canada says it will change Toronto's skyline with its slender 60-storey tower and spire. The project is 77% sold, but an excellent selection of suites remain.

One-bedroom-plus-library and two-bedroom suites ranging from 1,310 square feet to 2,067 sq. ft. are priced from $2.15-million to $3.37-million. "We have a very limited selection of our larger suites available," says Trump Toronto's director of marketing Howard Tikka. A 2,867-sq.-ft. two-bedroom-plus-library suite in the north-west corner of the 53rd floor is available for $4.93-million.

"This suite has some of the most spectacular views of the city," Mr. Tikka says. "Many people prefer the view toward Lake Ontario, but I think the north and west views are much more impressive." Buyers can begin choosing finishes this month, in the finishes centre, which features model kitchens, a living area and a master bedroom and en suite bathroom.

I like the way the different fabrics and patterns of the facade work like a synthesis of all buildings from different styles and eras that surround it... hope it was intentional, if so i find it a clever and context-sensitive work. My only concerns are for the spire, a little too "funky" for me, wait and see...

Have just spent a year living in downtown Toronto and have been visiting the city for the past 12 years ... am really pleased to see the city embrace new architecture styles and embrace a more modern look - Montreal/Quebec has the history ... Toronto has zero history so embraces the future

A little harsh indeed. It's called progress...

It's kinda a shame that it's so tightly packed in where it is. You can't really get a picture of the full building all by itself. Most we've seen always have other buildings obscuring parts of it.

It does create some impressive density and flush urban canyon's in the process though. That corner's been vacant for the longest time.
