Toronto Life – Condo Of The Week

Condomonium: $7,200 a month for a furnished two-bedroom in the Shangri-La

180 University Avenue, Unit 2305

ADDRESS: 180 University Avenue, Unit 2305

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Bay Street Corridor

AGENTS: Dylan Donovan, Chestnut Park Real Estate Limited, Brokerage

PRICE: $7,200/month

THE PLACE: A two-bedroom corner suite on the 23rd floor of the Shangri-La, the luxury hotel and condo tower that opened at University and Adelaide in September.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The tower’s residents have access to the hotel’s amenities, including the pool, hot tub, sauna, conference areas and screening room. Most importantly, you can also order room service, effectively eliminating the argument over whose turn it is to cook.

BIG SELLING POINT: The city’s case of Momofuko fever has translated into long queues at David Chang’s restaurant complex. Living upstairs means you can put your name on the list at Noodle Bar, then chill out at home while you wait for your table.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Scrooges will have to put up with the Santa Clause parade every Christmas as the master bedroom looks out on the procession’s route down University.
