Verve Condo Toronto

Condo of the Week: 120 Homewood Avenue

Located in The Verve tower at Wellesley and Jarvis, this two-story, loft-style unit is pretty incredible. The environmentally sustainable building (LEED certified) towers over the area at 39 storeys (with an additional six-story loft building attached) so if cozy is what you're looking for, you may be heading in the wrong direction with this one. That being said, the steep price tag on this corner penthouse does come with some impressive additions—floor-to-ceiling windows, an ecosmart fireplace, fancy staircase, the works. Ultra-modern in every element of its design, this isn't exactly a family home, but for the young couple or rich bachelor or bachelorette, this will definitely be an abode worth showing off to your obviously less impressive friends.

GOOD FOR

The young, successful power couple who have seen American Psycho too many times (though likely haven't read the book) and crave the high pressure rush of city-living. Those who find value in not adding to the pollution of the surrounding downtown core and would instead prefer to live in an eco-friendly building that emphasizes green energy in almost every aspect of its construction.

MOVE ON IF

You feel as though a near-million dollar price tag should likely buy you more than a 1,600 square feet, two bedroom apartment in a cookie-cutter condo high rise that looks more like a bank than a home. If you are at all klutzy, please turn away. That staircase is just asking for a concussion.
