Condo of the week: 1 King West
This ultra modern three level penthouse at 1 King West might have one of the best views in the city. Offered at $4,500,000, the hotel residence in the heart of the Financial District features three plus bedrooms, four bathrooms and plenty of angles on the skyline.
This condo/hotel was originally a bank, redeveloped in 2006 into a heritage-designated 51-storey skyscraper. A cool feature of the historic building is the original steel vault that still exists in the basement, now used for hosting private functions and instagramming wedding photos.
This suite on the forty-ninth floor is bigger than most houses (at least in the city) at 4,300 square feet. The main floor boasts a kitchen and a combined living and dining room. A glass staircase leads to the second and third levels with a sweeping master bedroom, and soaker tub with a private view of the CN Tower.
Anyone who hates cleaning. Hotel amenities are an added bonus when living at 1 King West. Room service, housekeeping, valet parking are just a few of the posh services included with this suite. Sure, you're paying top dollar (the maintenance is more than 2,000/month, annual taxes over $13,000) and you have to share your pool with hotel guests, but still, is anyone really complaining?
MOVE ON IF
You need a balconey. While looking down from a vertigo-inducing high-rise won't appeal to
everyone, outdoor space is a nice feature in any condo. Plus, the building is connected to the underground PATH system, and you can literally travel through the city without seeing the light of day or wearing a coat.
