5 luxury homes in Toronto, Architectural Digest's new 'capital of cool'

Design mag Architectural Digest has settled its stylish focus on Canada's largest city and goes so far as to dub it an up-and-coming "capital of cool." If this glassy midcentury penthouse, located high atop a Philip Johnson-designed tower at 155 Cumberland Street, is any indication, the city has been pretty damn cool since the '60s. The sprawling apartment measures 10,200 square feet, with an additional 5,000 square feet of outdoor space, and was recently renovated and updated to a very high standard. Highlights, apart from all that outdoor space, include a stone-lined atrium, a wine cellar, and a master suite with two bathrooms and a pair of dressing rooms. Of course, owning the coolest penthouse in the city comes at a price, a very high one. This palatial pad is listed for $28.3M.

↑ For buyer desirous of a penthouse but without the many millions required for the last place, this 2,500-square-foot two bedroom offers a blank slate for $2.1M. Yes, that's still plenty of money to be spending in Toronto, but this flat's ridiculously large roof deck makes the price look cheap. The terrace off the living area measures 530 square feet, but the one on the roof is a gargantuan 3,175 square feet. That combined with the two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and clean-lined modernist style makes this one desirable penthouse for a buyer willing to start from scratch on the furnishings.
