People buying million dollar condos in Toronto now get free Rolexes and Porsches with purchase

Remember that imposing complex of ultra-modern, modular, greenery-covered condos that has been slated for King Street West for some time now?

Well, the luxury development and architecture firms behind the community dubbed King Toronto threw a sumptuous party proving that the prospect of living in the building is absolutely out of reach for many normal people.

Units in the uniquely-designed and much-anticipated construction project were available for purchase at the exclusive one-night-only Lunar New Year-themed sales event yesterday evening at Toronto's Shangri-La Hotel.

It was all captured on video.

The evening included giveaways for a new Porsche 911 Carrera, Hermes Birkin bags worth up to $110,000, a Rolex watch and multiple gift cards for tens of thousands of dollars each.

You know, the usual goodies you'd expect for free at any party, especially if you're dishing out millions for a few hundred square feet of space in one of the least affordable cities on the planet.

The incentives were tiered based on how expensive of a unit attendees were looking at buying.

The pixelated-looking set of buildings are due to include 500 residential units ranging in price from $850,000 to $8 million, along with boutique office spaces, a massive shopping plaza and connecting pedestrian pathways, an "urban forest" and more on the stretch of King between Spadina and Portland.

The community is the brainchild of Dane design company Bjarke Ingels Group, Westbank and Allied Properties REIT.
