Condo of the Week: 1 St Thomas

Posted by Robyn Urback / February 6, 2013

1 st thomas torontoThis suite comes with a (four) million-dollar view. Steps away from Yorkville a 24-hour Rabba, this condo was built for art collectors and those who like to go on late-night fresh fruit runs. While the maintenance fees alone will cost you over $3,000 per month, the skyline views from your two private terraces are surely worth a few bucks, right? While this unit is, sadly, just a smidgen over my price range, I will take that antique dentist's chair and/or the map of Canada shelf. I was never one for excessive natural light and premium finishes anyway.

1 st thomas condo torontoMOVE ON IF:

You're afraid of heights. You like to be able to move around your shelving. You can't properly define "rotunda."

Can I just buy the Canada bookcase?
Liberty Villain replying to a comment from Rick / February 6, 2013 at 11:22 am
For real!
mezimeen / February 6, 2013 at 11:24 am
33g's in property tax! That's KRAAAY-ZAY!
milo / February 6, 2013 at 11:32 am
what a beautiful home.

and the maintainance fees and taxes are stupid high - but they'd be the same in a nice 4 Million dollar Yorkville house too
Lieberry replying to a comment from Rick / February 6, 2013 at 11:33 am

Thats awesome
Audrey / February 6, 2013 at 11:36 am
This is the best yet, very well decorated, looks like a liveable space. Ah to be rich.
Alex / February 6, 2013 at 11:41 am
Very nice, but with $4 million I'd just buy a house. Love the Canada shelf!
Wow / February 6, 2013 at 11:45 am
nearly $3300/mo in MAINTENANCE fees? Is this place falling apart or something? What an obvious cash grab....
unoriginal / February 6, 2013 at 11:59 am
Looks like someone went to Restoration Hardware and said, "give me one of everything"
JLL / February 6, 2013 at 12:05 pm
Wait- all that money and they still only got the "kitchen wall" that's in every new condo build?
Oliver / February 6, 2013 at 12:40 pm
no mention that Drake lives in the same building?
Sami / February 6, 2013 at 12:45 pm
Canada bookshelf from Wanderer Canada:
Collin Ng replying to a comment from JLL / February 6, 2013 at 12:46 pm
pretty sure it's not just a galley kitchen...

where's the tap, and the article also mentioned a granite topped island.
Rip-off / February 6, 2013 at 01:02 pm
Property taxes and maintenance fees are ridiculously stupid. How does it cost the city of Toronto $33,000 a year to service a single condo unit in a building?
Brad replying to a comment from Sami / February 6, 2013 at 01:06 pm
Jerks didn't include PEI. Jerks.
Skye / February 6, 2013 at 01:08 pm
For four million, you could still have a huge house with an actual yard. But if I had a country estate and needed a pied-a-terre for film festival season-or simply didn't want to travel all the way home after a day at Stillwater-why, yes, it would be excellent.
JAAAAAAAT / February 6, 2013 at 02:20 pm
that is some ugly furniture. looks like expensive Leons crap. leave it to the wealthy to have great taste
Tanya replying to a comment from Sami / February 6, 2013 at 02:26 pm
Dude am I tripping out, or is that a link to buy that bookshelf in Second Life?
Mrs Toria / February 6, 2013 at 03:42 pm
I see no signs of a bidet. All that money and no bidet? Who are these people? They are uncivilised and poorly bred.
Cory replying to a comment from Rick / February 6, 2013 at 03:49 pm
Seriously, where did they get that bookcase?
Liberty Villain replying to a comment from Tanya / February 6, 2013 at 04:06 pm
Unfortunately, you are correct. It's insane what people will spend their money on.

Anyone find the real thing...?
TrivialMe replying to a comment from Liberty Villain / February 6, 2013 at 07:58 pm
Couldn't say how widely available the bookshelf is, but it looks like it might have been produced by Prototype Design Lab:
david / February 7, 2013 at 06:11 am
should of taken some of the TMI (monthly maintenance) and hired someone who know how to decorate....what a mish mash of crap poorly out dated for a beautiful space..
guess they ran out of cash
Fig replying to a comment from Tanya / February 7, 2013 at 10:54 am
You are not crazy - that is totally a link to sell it in Second Life - for real money?!?!
PDLab replying to a comment from TrivialMe / March 6, 2013 at 11:07 am
That IS the PDLab Canada Bookshelf! Good eye.
J / July 4, 2013 at 11:32 am
@Oliver: Not only does Drake live in the building ... it IS Drake's condo:
Jay replying to a comment from milo / July 4, 2013 at 11:38 am
Exactly. And a house in Yorkville would cost a LOT more than $40,000 a year to maintain, with a gardener, pool boy, heating, and water. If you want a backyard, move to Miami. Backyards in Toronto are useless.
T.Orocks / July 4, 2013 at 12:11 pm
This is Drake's condo in Yorkville.
Most bogus / July 4, 2013 at 12:14 pm
I for one am very proud Drake is Canadian and from Toronto.Who cares about what these people say about where or how he lives.
That is His business and His business is doing better than most of the critics that comment on furniture and taxes and all that rubbish. Stay thirsty my friend.
kjm / July 4, 2013 at 12:35 pm
Who the hell is Drake ?
33 grand in prop taxes and 3 grand in condo fees ... I am behind in my 3 grand of prop taxes ... sad but true ...
BillyO / July 4, 2013 at 12:37 pm
Rumour has it Drizzy has a condo in the Shangri-La (I wonder if he likes Momofuku?) in addition to his mansion in LA.

This one will sell in the mid 3 milli range for sure.
sk / July 4, 2013 at 12:48 pm
I just want that Canada bookshelf.. how much for that??
Lucas / July 4, 2013 at 01:04 pm
Looks like someone went shopping at UpCountry...
Daved replying to a comment from Most bogus / July 4, 2013 at 01:06 pm
Agreed. I am sure that every single person that talks about other's extravagant living, lives to the extent of their means. If you make $20k/yr, you own or rent appropriately. Same with $75k/yr. If you make $20mil/yr, you live accordingly.
charles replying to a comment from Brad / July 4, 2013 at 01:10 pm
They didn't forget PEI, its the far left. Idiots...
James replying to a comment from charles / July 4, 2013 at 01:26 pm
Your kidding right? PEI is in Eastern Canada
guillermo vilas replying to a comment from Oliver / July 4, 2013 at 01:26 pm
that is Drake's condo!
Marc Filion replying to a comment from PDLab / July 4, 2013 at 01:36 pm
How much does the Canada bookshelf cost and where can I buy one? Send me a private message is you want.

James replying to a comment from Marc Filion / July 4, 2013 at 02:00 pm
I want one of those too.
Jason replying to a comment from charles / July 4, 2013 at 03:37 pm
That's Vancouver Island, not PEI. You should lose your citizenship (if you even have it).
Just me / July 4, 2013 at 06:38 pm
Interesting and very entertaining comments lmao
John / July 4, 2013 at 07:10 pm
That Canada shelf is wonderful except for that bulbous waste of space land mass next to Ontar..... oh wait thats Quebec....
dee / July 4, 2013 at 09:45 pm
Where can I get that bookcase? Someone please find me a seller! C'mon internet find it! :)
meh / July 4, 2013 at 10:02 pm
good lawd those curtains are ugly!
Lex / July 5, 2013 at 10:28 am
HOLD ON! Am I halucinating or people are actually thinking this 'Designer's mistake' is beautiful?!
Does Drake have no taste AT ALL?!
Mrs Tarses / July 5, 2013 at 10:59 am
What's a Drake?
sd replying to a comment from Oliver / July 5, 2013 at 05:58 pm
This is actually Drake's suite!
Chris / July 10, 2013 at 07:37 am
I tracked down the price of the Canada bookshelf; hold onto your hats folks . . .
