One of the most unique and exciting projects seems to have been completed. A fully lit up penthouse unit seems to attest to that. That project is 155 Cumberland/130 Bloor. Initially 130 Bloor was a 14 storey building built in 1960 by the Bronfman family. The first 12 floors were office space with the top two floors occupied by a spectacular modern penthouse apartment owned by Noah & Rose Torno. When the Torno's passed away the unit was left empty. In 2005 the building was purchased by KingSett Capital, a Toronto-based real estate investment firm. Shortly after the city placed the Torno Suite on its Inventory of Heritage Properties. A such KingSeet decided to build upwards while retaining the existing Torno Suite. The first 10 floors were to remain as office space, floors 11-12 were to be turned into condos with 6 new floors to be added above the Torno Suite. A potentially crazy idea but it seems to have worked. Designed by Quadrangle, this most certainly must have been one difficult job - adding 6 floors to a functioning 50 year old office building all the while not touching the amazing penthouse. Some shots by Redroom Studios of the final product.
