On the 12th floor of a roughly 35-year-old high-rise on Queens Quay, this one-bedroom suite with den is spacious at 1,119 square feet, and has a split-level floor plan that has undergone custom renovations, agent Julie Kinnear says.
"It's a pretty grand, old building," she explains. "The square footage [of units] is significantly bigger than the new [condominiums] for the same price."
Part of the open-concept living and dining room — which has halogen lights and built-in shelves flanking floor-to-ceiling glass doors to a Juliet balcony — was sectioned off to create a den. The latter has a door, walk-in closet, and a smoked-glass window to allow in natural light. "You can close it off if you have guests or want quiet or privacy if someone's watching TV," Ms. Kinnear says.
On the lower level, there are a four-piece bathroom and the bedroom, to which a walk-in closet was added. The updated, eat-in kitchen includes a pantry.
Parking comes with the suite. A monthly fee of $626 covers utilities — including cable — and the maintenance of the gym, indoor pool, recreation room, and squash courts.
The building is steps from the Harbourfront Centre, shops at Queens Quay Terminal and the Toronto Islands ferry docks.
