Introducing Suite 1905, part of the private residences at the Imperial Plaza, an unquestionably unique condominium home. This is Toronto’s perfect residence in the sky. A masterpiece of mid-century International Style modernism. Only the best materials and the most advanced building technologies were employed in its construction. With world class facilities from pool to squash courts to movie theatres, this home has views to the edge of forever!
Originally built in 1957 as the Imperial Oil headquarters, this 21-storey building was then the city’s tallest building. Constructed with a limestone façade and steel frame, the Imperial Building stood as the largest all-welded steel frame structure in the world. At one time the building was proposed to be Toronto’s City Hall. After several decades of use as the head office of Imperial Oil, the building was sold in 2010 and converted into a condominium apartment building.
The dramatic, two-storey polished marble lobby housing York Wilson’s two mural masterpiece, “The Story of Oil” was beautifully preserved and incorporated into the space that now houses a convenient Longo’s Market and an LCBO.
Suite 1905 is south facing with spectacular city views, and has walk outs from almost every room. It is 4,000 square feet! The 785 square feet of outdoor space features a balcony spanning 108 feet and a covered multi-seasonal use terrace on which you can barbeque. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent in upgrades to bring this suite up to the highest standards. With two parking spaces and a locker there is no need to downsize!
This suite has been thoughtfully and meticulously designed. The large master retreat including a huge walk-in closet, spa-inspired bathroom and private office is divine. There are two more bedrooms, a den or media room, and a storage room which could be a gym, separate laundry room with custom built-ins, bathroom and powder room. The massive living room with gas fireplace, the dining room and the master bedroom have 11 foot ceilings and the rest of the suite has 10 foot ceilings, making the suite feel airy and even more spacious. The custom Cameo kitchen is a chef’s dream and is outfitted with the best appliances, large centre island, and plentiful and creative storage space.
This apartment would appeal to many people. It’s a downsizing opportunity, a space to live in for those seeking a carefree lifestyle and it also has enough space for a family or a couple. The stunning view, outstanding amenities, the ideal location and custom finishes is what makes this suite so perfect.
