Part of 1 Hotel Toronto, this modern and spacious condo suite is located in a boutique building tucked away from the street in a bustling area of ​​downtown Toronto.

Highlights include hardwood floors, exposed concrete ceilings, a large deck with multiple exits spanning the width of the unit, full bathrooms in both bedrooms, and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

The office includes a hardwood floor, exposed concrete ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a patio door leading to the long balcony.

“I bought the condominium from a plan in 2009. The entrance to the residential units is private, it never gets crowded to go unnoticed to get the mail or walk my dogs. Alternatively, I could meet my guests in the hotel lobby while the elevators are combined,” says home owner Robin Kay, founder of Toronto Fashion Week and the Fashion Design Council of Canada.

“I chose this condo because the building is dog friendly and has a good size park across the street. The east-west balcony on the south front is wide, allowing for dining and lounging areas,” he said.

“The condo is very well built, practically soundproof for a bustling area. I enjoyed the small specialty bakeries, coffee shops and many restaurants just steps away, and often ordered from the restaurant downstairs,” added Kay.

A four-seater breakfast bar is the focal point of the kitchen that features quartz countertops, pendant lights, exposed concrete ceiling, hardwood flooring, and high-end stainless steel appliances.

There are just 25 residential units in the 15-story glass-and-brick building that also includes hotel rooms and office space. There is a concierge for the residential units, and shared hotel amenities include an outdoor pool, fitness center, party/meeting room, and rooftop terrace/garden.

The building is within walking distance to many trendy restaurants and shops, with easy access to public transportation and the Gardiner Expwy.

“What makes this condo really special is the abundance of natural light throughout, as it is rare to find a condo in the city with south, east and west exposures. Combine that with 10-foot ceilings throughout, it creates a dramatic, gallery-like space,” says real estate agent Sameer Ismail.

The living room includes floor-to-ceiling windows, an exposed concrete ceiling, and a garden door leading out onto the large balcony.

The front doors of the suite open to a large living room. Tucked away to one side is a closet, a two-piece bathroom, and a laundry room.

A partial wall separates the living room from the office, which includes a hardwood floor, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an exit to the garden.

The living room has a hardwood floor, floor to ceiling windows and an exit to the garden door.
