Condo of the week: 180 University Avenue
If you've ever wondered what it's like to live at the Shangri-La (the hotel-condo, rather than James Hilton's mythical paradise), a glimpse at this 57th floor suite confirms that it's pretty swank up there. This two bedroom plus den condo goes for $2,780,000 and is decked out with plenty of luxury features in keeping with its price tag.
The design here is contemporary without the minimalist trappings that you often see in Toronto condos that adopt the soft-loft style. Located in one of the city's finest hotels, there's no desire for an industrial vibe here. This unit is bright as can be with white walls and wood floors throughout the main living areas.
The space isn't huge for the money someone will be putting down, but living in a downtown hotel has its perks, including a perfect 100 WalkScore and the various amenities offered on site like a full service gym, pool, and spa.
Someone who can afford to have expensive tastes. The prospective buyer will probably be working a lot to make all that money, so having everything that you need on-site could be a major selling feature for an executive who's tight on time.
This is not a condo meant for a sizable downtown familiy. You can get three bedrooms out of it if you try, but at the expense of some of the luxury in having the den as an entertainment room. If it's lots of space you're after, this one isn't for you.
