The place

A gargantuan home on the 47th floor of the Residences of The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto. It has floor-to-ceiling windows that look south over Lake Ontario and offer close-up views of the CN Tower.

Here’s the foyer:

And here’s the view. From this angle, you can see exactly how badly the CN Tower needs cleaning. Such luxury!

The history

This 54-floor luxury condo and hotel was completed in 2011. A family bought this unit because it was one of the biggest luxury suites available near the downtown core.

Big selling point

With five-star amenities like in-room dining, maid service, a spa and a pool, this would be a perfect place to hole up for the winter. Anyone who works in the core may literally never have to step outside in cold weather, because the building is attached to the PATH.

Possible deal breaker

There’s no private outdoor space. Anyone who needs fresh air will have to head to the residents-only lounge on the 21st floor, or to DEQ, the hotel lounge, where, at certain times of year, they might find themselves fighting for tables with the likes of Zac Efron, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Kiefer Sutherland, Josh Brolin, George Clooney or Ryan Gosling.
