The new Four Seasons Hotel and Residences is breaking records in a number of ways. First is from a height perspective. In Today's Photo Of The Day, taken from Front and Church, we see it is now the tallest building at Yonge and Bloor. And it still has a few floors to go. This record will remain for only a few years until One Bloor takes over.

The other record is from a financial perspective. Word on the Urban Toronto forum is that the top floor penthouse has sold for a staggering $28 million dollars which, if true, is a record for Toronto condos. For that amount you get the three bedroom, 9,038 square foot unit on the 55th level of the building. 

Here's the floorplan for that unit.
