If I were Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes, or Drake I'd so be all over this. Im not much for condo living but with a pad like this how could I resist!

As spectacular as these units are, there are several reasons why certain clientele tend to choose one over the other. Aside from the higher price/sf + extraordinarily high maintenance fees, living at Yonge/Bloor in a very large building like this doesn't carry the same level of privacy and exclusivity as living in a walled-off mega mansion in the Bridle Path/Post Rd. It also doesn't allow for private 16-car garages and NBA sized basketball courts.

I agree but those buying such units are definitely not buying them as primary residences. I would imagine it to be someone who visits Toronto only few times a year and prefers to own a place instead of staying in a hotel.

When I looked at the price list for the penthouse condos at 30 million... I mean sure be nice to have a "prestigious address" but also myself I would want some land with that. Just my opinion. Mind you I would use that as my "home away from home" so kinda torn really.

Don't penthouse units like this generally come unfinished so the purchaser can do whatever they want?
That's an elephant-in-the-room question I've been asking quietly to myself here. Four ways my *limited understanding of how I could see this go...

1) Don't bother decorating, we'll do it all for you.

2) We can do the decorating for a premium as an option.

3) You are allowed to decorate this place as long as if fits our vision/standards for it.

4) Sure...if you want to turn this into Krusty the Clown's funhouse in the sky, knock yourselves out.

*Note: My income level is far far below this being my field of expertise. >.<

I'm pretty sure this is the option here; a one-and-done thing designed to attract foreign/distant buyers who don't want to have to worry about arranging something from a distance. It'll look like they actually "live" there for the 2-3 times they actually visit the location.

If you're buying a 30 million condo you probably already have a few other homes already, with plenty of land.

For what it's worth, I would totally buy the penthouse if I had that kind of money.

A floor every 2 weeks would be great... so it would top out in July 2025.

I know Sam has his photo op already planned for the last piece of steel.
