As one of the most popular new buildings among UrbanToronto's readers in recent years, Plaza's Ivory on Adelaide—voted one of 2014's best projects in our year-end poll—has brought a new urban presence to the revitalizing stretch of Adelaide just east of Sherbourne.

When we last toured the Hariri Pontarini-designed building in December, we took in the completed, polished public spaces and amenity offerings of a building that opened to its first residents in late 2014. Now, we take a closer look at the luxurious suite interiors on offer at Ivory's luxurious penthouse suites.

On stepping foot in PH 14, the impressive outdoor terrace spanning the length of the living/dining area immediately draws the eye. Past the modern Bryon Patton and Associates-appointed interiors, the spacious east-facing terrace offers panoramic views in three directions, with Lake Ontario visible to the south.

Inside, the two-bedroom suite has been outfitted with unintrusive decor, showcasing the possibilities of the space. The centrally placed kitchen features modern, stainless-steel appliances, including an in-built microwave above the stove.

A large kitchen island provides a space for casual meals and entertaining, with more formal dining space also adjoining the kitchen.

The two bedrooms are characterized by expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, which create an open ambiance in both spaces. Both bedrooms also feature spacious closets, with a large walk-in storage space and—in the master bedroom—an ensuite bathroom

Facing north, both bedrooms offer an unobstructed panorama of the growing city, with the cluster of towers near Yonge and Bloor a particular focal point.
