Want a view of the lake? Of Toronto's downtown core? Of Downsview Airport? Of Humber Bay Shores? Of Bloor-Yorkville? How about leafy-green Queen's Park and the U of T? Or leafier-greener High Park? Does Midtown appeal? Rosedale?
Can't choose? Well, you could always buy a condo in every one of those areas—and try to remember which closet you left which particular shirt and tie in—or you could just plant yourself at the top of Aura, where you get every Toronto view you've ever dreamed of, where one big closet will fit every shirt and tie you'll ever need, and where the rest of the 11,000 square feet + of space extends to the horizon in every direction.
We've been staring up at that building a lot, especially over the last few weeks as a metal armature has been raised. It will eventually hold the peaked crown of Aura's curtain wall sheathing, and it's been calling us, calling us, calling us…
So up we went! Hop on into the hoist (but note: the camera is shaky owing to the vibrating sides of the hoist)!
Not surprisingly, as alluded to earlier, the views from up here are worth a million in every direction, so let's start with the southeast, and gradually swing around.
There's lots you can pick out from up here. Well, you can pick out everything from up here. Coming up next; zeroing in on the Regent Park revitalization.
South. This is the crazy big view.
We would have like to have stayed until the sun went down and the city lights came up at Yonge Dundas Square, but maybe that will have to wait for the first cocktail party in our new penthouse offices, this fall maybe? (Unless someone else snatches it up first I suppose.)
Southwest; our radically transforming Entertainment District, Concord CityPlace, and Fort York neighbourhoods.
Turn a bit closer in, and there's lots to see to the northwest, and to the north.
And all that could be yours…
Meantime, there's that armature we've been watching carefully. Just what does it look like up there? Like this:
And for now, that's your tour. Enjoy the long weekend!
