Buyers pay big money to have a view of the lake, and there is one condominium on Toronto’s waterfront that is different from all the rest.
You might not realize it at first glance, but the design of this building is incredibly unique…
Seriously though – who buys a waterfront condo without a waterfront view?
“Aqua” at 410 Queen’s Quay was designed by architects Graziani & Corazza who brought us DNA at 1005 King and 1 Shaw Street.
Maybe you’re not as impressed with their “L” shaped building design as I am, but let me ask you this: how come nobody thought of this before them?
Many buyers put a huge price on a lake view.
I’ve run into countless Toronto Raptors and Toronto Blue Jays in the lobbies of various Queen’s Quay condos. It seems as if the attitude amongst our international import friends is that living on the water is as good as it gets. Maybe these guys just take the lead from other cities where that is most definitely the case, like Chicago, for example.
A true, unobstructed lake view is about as expensive as a view can get in our city. Sure, the condo at Church & Lombard known as “Spire” advertises the best “city views” in the downtown core since it happens to be the only 40-storey building around and has unobstructed views in every direction.
But who cares about a city view, right?
The lake is where it’s at!
Seems as though the developers and architects at Aqua agreed.
And I bet they cashed in big-time on their “L” shape design where everybody gets a view of the water, no matter how small a glimpse…Back To Top Back To Comments
