A Spacious, Opulent Place To Call Home
The GTA luxury condo market is alive and well. For those who are looking for a more spacious and opulent suite to call home – often complete with A-list amenities and over-the-top features – you’ll be happy to know that we’re seeing entire condominium towers dedicated to this type of lifestyle.
We typically think of luxury condos as starting from the $1-million price point, with some units reaching well over that.
While any size of unit can be considered a luxury unit with the right finishes and features and in the right building, we often see Toronto luxury condos being more spacious than your average Toronto condominium suite. A luxury unit might start around the 800-square-foot mark for a one-bedroom, with some buildings – like The One in Yorkville – featuring a selection of opulent three-bedroom suites ranging from 4,000 square-feet to 9,000. Similarly, Tridel’s Aquabella – near the downtown Toronto waterfront – features an expansive 4,326 square-foot unit with two private terraces and a wine cellar.
Amenities at luxury condominiums are usually plentiful, thoughtful and contain perks and features not commonly found in more conventional buildings. For example, 1 Yorkville features two floors of amenities connected by a spiral staircase.
These amenities include an expansive outdoor pool with private cabanas and its very own juice bar, hot and cold plunge pools, aqua massage spa, sauna and steam room. It also boasts a Zen garden and a rooftop terrace with city skyline views, state-of-the-art barbecues and an outdoor cinema.
Many Toronto luxury condominiums, like Yorkville Private Estates, have services that assist with day-to-day details, for that hotel-inspired feel. These might include a concierge that assists with bookings for dinner reservations, concerts or sports events, housekeeping, dry cleaning, pet care and floral or grocery delivery.
A Wealth Of Ornate And Contemporary Touches
Inside a luxury suite itself, you’re likely to find designer finishes and name-brand appliances, paired with luxurious fixtures like rain shower heads, and large, walk-in showers. Touches like marble, gold and other rich, contemporary materials will likely be featured prominently, along with additions like breakfast bars, private terraces and soaring ceilings. Some suites, like the townhomes at AYC Condos, even feature their own private elevator.
Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood definitely takes the cake for the sheer volume of luxury condominium buildings it houses. The neighbourhood features some of the region’s most-talked about developments with some of the most opulent finishes and features. This is not surprising, as Yorkville has long been the city’s prime destination for high-end shopping and dining, featuring the well-known “Mink Mile,” a globally-renowned stretch of Bloor Street that houses labels like Chanel, Gucci, Swarovski and Holt Renfrew.
Luxury Condos Often Found In Upscale Neighbourhoods
We’ve also been seeing more of these buildings popping up in some of Toronto’s waterfront neighbourhoods, where vibrant arts and cultural centers and trendy restaurants meet an idyllic lakefront lifestyle and dazzling views.
We sometimes see luxury condominiums – like Zigg Condos, Blue Diamond at Imperial Village and Brookdale on Avenue Road– in established midtown pockets traditionally home to large estates, where many homeowners are looking to downsize into a more manageable and convenient lifestyle, but stay in the affluent neighbourhood they call home.
As the burgeoning Yonge and Eglinton intersection expands to house more residential and commercial growth, we’re seeing a select number of luxury condos here too, such as Freed’s Art Shoppe, designed in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld. As Yonge and Eg transforms into a major metropolitan hub, we’re expecting more of these suites to appear around this location too.
Lavish, spacious and designed for residents who want to live a truly VIP-inspired lifestyle, GTA luxury condominiums are exciting and indulgent places to call home.
