Con­struc­tion on Four Sea­sons Ho­tel and Pri­vate Res­i­dences Toronto is un­der­way, with first oc­cu­pan­cies and the open­ing of the ho­tel slated for next sum­mer.

The de­vel­oper is Bay-Yorkville De­vel­op­ments Ltd., a joint ven­ture be­tween Menkes De­vel­op­ments Ltd., Life­time De­vel­op­ments and Al­cion Ven­tures. Menkes Con­struc­tion Ltd. is build­ing both the ho­tel and res­i­dences.

Talk about ex­clu­sive ad­dresses. How about a 9,038-square-foot pent­house in the heart of Toronto for a cool $28 mil­lion — the most ex­pen­sive con­do­minium res­i­dence ever sold in Canada?

Just re­cently, an in­ter­na­tional buyer signed a pur­chase agree­ment for the west pent­house of the new Four Sea­sons Ho­tel and Pri­vate Res­i­dences Toronto.

The pent­house res­i­dence takes up the en­tire top floor of the 55-storey West Res­i­dence build­ing.

As one might ex­pect, it will have panoramic views of Toronto’s im­pres­sive sky­line.

And just to make the condo look that much big­ger, it fea­tures 12-foot ceil­ings, a floor-to-ceil­ing glass gal­le­ria and four ex­pan­sive cor­ner ter­races. Are you ready for this! In­cluded in the $28-mil­lion price tag is a staff res­i­dence, lo­cated in the ad­ja­cent, 26-storey East Res­i­dence build­ing. The staff res­i­dence pro­vides the own­ers with the con­ve­nience of sep­a­rate, pri­vate quar­ters for house­hold staff lo­cated on-site.

“As one of the largest de­vel­op­ments of its kind in North Amer­ica, our ex­cit­ing new ho­tel and pri­vate res­i­dence in Toronto rep­re­sents a won­der­ful aff ir­ma­tion of the strength of the Four Sea­sons brand in Canada and around the world,” said Isadore Sharp, founder and chair­man of Four Sea­sons Ho­tels and Re­sorts. “This new home will al­low us to of­fer the ex­quis­ite ser­vice, style and com­forts that have be­come our hall­mark, while re­main­ing the world leader in lux­ury hos­pi­tal­ity.”

Lo­cated at the north­east cor­ner of Bay Street and Yorkville Av­enue, Four Sea­sons Ho­tel and Pri­vate Res­i­dences Toronto is a mixed-use de­vel­op­ment fea­tur­ing a ho­tel and 210 pri­vate res­i­dences in two sleek 55-and 26-storey tow­ers.

The pro­ject is 85 per cent sold, with a var­ied se­lec­tion of suites in each tower avail­able for pur­chase.

“The dis­cern­ing in­ter­na­tional buyer of the pent­house suite was at­tracted to all that this land­mark pro­ject has to of­fer,” said Alan Menkes, pres­i­dent of the high­rise res­i­den­tial divi­sion of Menkes De­vel­op­ments, the man­ag­ing part­ner of the pro­ject.

“Four Sea­sons Ho­tel and Pri­vate Res­i­dences Toronto boasts the city’s f in­est lo­ca­tion, with stun­ning ar­chi­tec­ture, im­pec­ca­bly de­signed liv­ing spaces and glob­ally renowned ser­vice stan­dards,” hw says.

De­signed by ar­chi­tects Al­liance, the 55-storey West Res­i­dence tower con­sists of a 253-room Four Sea­sons Ho­tel on the f irst 20 floors, and 100 pri­vate res­i­dences above.

Both tow­ers share a court­yard de­signed by in­ter­na­tion­ally-renowned Claude Cormier Land­scape Ar­chi­tects.

The de­sign and f in­ishes of the pri­vate res­i­dences were cre­ated by Brian Gluck­stein De­sign Plan­ning.
