Toronto's Entertainment District has come a long way from its roots as a warehousing and garment manufacturing district. While the warehouses and manufacturing buildings are either gone or repurposed as offices, restaurants, or clubs, new condominium towers continue to sprout on former parking lots or otherwise under-utilized sites in great numbers.

Along with the thousands of new condos the high-rise developments bring, a limited selection of ultra luxury penthouses are being offered. These units boast all of the features and the best views in a condo, but also come with the vast space associated with a single family home. Among the buildings offering penthouses that give single-family homes a run for their money, Lifetime DevelopmentsThe Bond will soon house a full-floor suite on the 42nd level of the Core Architects-designed condominium tower, soon to complete construction on Adelaide just west of John.

At an impressive 3,568 ft2, the Bond's 42nd floor penthouse will be more than quadruple the size of the average Toronto condo. Combined with a 1,913 ft2 west-facing terrace, the suite will offer a total of 5,481 ft2 of living space, including two bedrooms, a den, three bathrooms, a powder room, and much more. (Clicking on the floorplan below will bring up an enlarged, more detailed view of the unit layout.)

Part of The Bond's 'Connected Collection', the suite will feature direct elevator access and panoramic views of the surrounding Entertainment District and the skylines beyond. A 3D fly-through rendering video provides a detailed view of the unit. 

The video begins on the unit's outdoor terrace, flying over a fire pit and through the terrace doors to reveal the suite's living and dining rooms, both offering views of the Financial District through floor-to-ceiling glazing. The video then cuts back to the outdoor living space to reveal features like planters, seating, and a more. Finally, the master bedroom is shown complete with a gas fireplace and terrace access.
