Condo of the Week: 500 Wellington Street West
This boutique-style condo at 500 Wellington has some serious potential. The units were only completed in 2011, and right now, the decor in this suite is set up such that it's pretty malleable. That said, it's got a really girly vibe to it at the moment, with crystal chandeliers, glossy white wardrobe doors and a luxe washroom made for soaking and pampering. Those details could all be easily changed, though, if they're not your thang. But at this stage, the place screams "super-sized bachelorette pad / all the single ladies / too many cosmopolitans." Or "one too many lines snorted off a glass table while wearing leopard print stilettos and hoping for a threesome" because you heard that glamourous living sounded something like that in a song by the Weeknd. That kind of girly.
All of that aside, (and none of it being especially bad, if I do say so myself) this living space is glorious, like the snow white heavens all people of financial aptitude one day gain access to. The kitchen is incredibly sleek, with plenty of counter space and compact, up to the minute appliances. It features the aforementioned glossy cabinetry, and it's brought down to earth with warm hardwood flooring. Throughout the apartment, the walls are the clean, stark white that's so sought after right now in home decor, and there appears to be a sitting area in one of the washrooms.
This is upscale Girls â while Hannah eats cupcakes in the tub, Marni can now recline in the chair while she whines about Charlie and the merits of being a hostess. That said, this apartment would be the perfect place to get ready to go out. There's even private elevator access, which means no mingling with the great unwashed, such as bloggers. (And no one seeing who comes in and out, either).

Someone who wears white business suits. People who want to be downtown, single ladies or not. This condo is in the middle of everything, and it's pretty enough that it would probably feel like a home and be worth the money.
MOVE ON IF
Though there could very well be room, the suite doesn't strike me as the best spot to raise a family. Its coldness, and the narrowness of key family gathering areas, like the kitchen, make it seem like a better option for those among us who roam free.
