Agent Ira Jelinek had a client set on acquiring a spacious, upper-level suite with a premier address in downtown Toronto. This two-bedroom corner suite on the 60th floor of One Bloor was one of the only candidates they visited, with the further enticement that the asking price had dropped from $1.549-million to $1.448-million in the new year.
“[My buyer] was interested in the building, the location and the view,” Mr. Jelinek said.
“It was listed at a higher price before and when they reduced it, there was still some room for negotiation.”
What they got
One of Toronto’s tallest residential skyscrapers, One Bloor stands at 76 storeys, with more than 700 private residences. Nordstrom Rack and McEwan’s anchor the street level retail.
This 1,038-square-foot unit has nine-foot ceilings and window walls facing north and west, along with a balcony spanning the width of the bedrooms and main living area.
Finishes and features are all upscale, such as granite counter tops, an island and stainless steel appliances in the eat-in kitchen.
The unit comes with two full bathrooms and laundry facilities, plus a storage locker and parking.
Monthly fees of $708 cover the cost of water, heating and concierge and the use of a gym and outdoor pool.
The agent’s take
“It’s the tallest building in the area and it’s got the One Bloor address versus other ones on Charles or other side streets,” Mr. Jelinek said.
“And it’s right at Yonge and Bloor, so it’s across from the subway. It’s a marquee property.”
