One Bloor West Lower Penthouse: A Diamond in the Sky
One Bloor West is taking real estate to new heights as Toronto’s tallest condo tower. Standing at an incredible 85 floors with 416 units, at the intersection of Yonge and Bloor, One Bloor West, known as The One, takes the cake as Toronto’s most sought-after address.
Designed by world-renowned architects Foster + Partners, the building is uniquely situated at a prime location right in the heart of Yorkville, Toronto’s most posh neighbourhood and home to the Mink Mile, a strip of Bloor Street West with prestigious designer boutiques like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton. Not only does Yorkville offer the best shopping experience, it also offers an equally incredible dining experience, recently celebrating three Michelin-starred restaurants.
The crown jewel of The One sits on the 80th floor of the building, the incredible Lower Penthouse with over 8,000 square feet of indoor living space, a palatial sanctuary of floor-to-ceiling glass, featuring an exclusive infinity pool, waterfall, hot tub, bar and entertainment space, currently on the market for C$35 million (US$26 million).
High above the city, the penthouse is able to mould into the vision of the owner by offering unrestricted flexibility for individual layouts that are completely customizable. The C$35-million penthouse includes 6+2 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and is designed with clean tones and the finest material. The design of the kitchen is contemporary European, featuring custom-made countertops and cabinetry, and the latest Miele appliances. Each bathroom is a work of art, made with marble flooring and countertops, and Kohler fixtures, allowing for a spa-like experience over 300 metres in the sky.
The developer of The One, Mizrahi Developments, led by Sam Mizrahi, has a 25-year track record of real estate development and high-end building in North America. Its projects are known for their superior craftsmanship and innovation, with no detail missed in the process of selecting and sourcing the best materials and manufacturers.
This stands true for The One, with Mizrahi Developments engaging Foster + Partners for its groundbreaking project. Known for its exoskeleton designs, the firm took a similar approach to the way it developed the Gherkin in London, England, an iconic development in the capital’s skyline. Foster + Partners created a superstructure in which the support for the building is mainly on the exterior, allowing for interiors that maximize exposure to the sunlight. With this in mind, The One truly takes advantage of what nature has to offer, allowing the sky to be a daily, ever-changing canvas between its soaring window frames. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in a one-of-a-kind building in Canada,” says Mizrahi.
An exciting addition to the building is the Andaz hotel, adding approximately 200 rooms that elevate the luxury hospitality experience in the city. This makes a perfect option for those who would like to invite family and friends to their home and still maintain their privacy, as the Andaz hotel is an extension of each resident’s private oasis.
The building adds another set of amenities to its residences via a sky lobby with fitness facilities, library and formal entertaining rooms, and a large south-facing terrace providing the residents and their families with luxurious, intimate spaces for rest and relaxation. An extension of comfort and convenience is offered by the building’s 24-hour concierge service. With the help of the concierge, residents and guests will be able to enjoy the area’s entertainment, culture, cuisine and shopping in full.
Making history as the highest penthouse in Canada, this exclusive property offers a truly bespoke lifestyle opportunity. In other words, the sky’s the limit!
