THE GOOD

You'll feel like a bona fide gladiator romping around this coliseum-shaped property. It operates like a hotel. You don't have to park your own car, open your own doors, or really, be autonomous in any way! And you're just a stone's throw from Tiffany & Co. should a diamonds emergency arise.

The building also has a panoramic view of the city. The developers claim the balconies will be "similar to what you might find in a Parisian hotel," and that they will be ideal for enjoying a "morning coffee and croissant." Or, you know, showering the city with cash money from your $8 million penthouse.

THE BAD

Personality-wise, this neighbourhood is in need of a lobotomy — or has it already had one? OK, maybe that's not fair. Let me reword. Perhaps it'd be better to say that despite the central location, the demographic make-up of the neighbourhood is rather homogenous and this lacking vibrancy. Luxury is on offer, of course, but there's got to be...

And despite its otherwise light-friendly design, some suites have washrooms sans windows, which can be gloomy, especially considering the price point.

THE VERDICT

Living in a hotel-esque building with an unobstructed view of the city almost trumps my issues with the neighbourhood. The design of this place is insanely gorgeous. If you're a status type, this could be a very attractive destination.
