The uppermost floors of Commerce Court North, as the ultimate two-floor apartment with a promenade and loft attic to boot.
Replace the frosted glass in those wonderfully tall arched windows and the view would be astounding. You'd probably have to soundproof the elevator rooms. Or glass them in - would be quite the animated conversation piece adjoining the living room and bathroom.
I'm over the Science Centre today. It was nice while it lasted, but the concrete looks dreadful in the fall drizzle as I sit with a glass of chablis on a dreary fall day. Time to get out.
Today I'm into taking over the Atlantis Pavilions and Cinesphere at Ontario Place. It's got setting, close to downtown, views, and everything else I need. Sorry kiddies, go somewhere else to cool off, the amusement park is now my garden.
these are hilarious....keep 'em coming (and yes, yes, I know what you're thinking: keep doing his f**king work for him) but it's all for the greater good of giving urbantoronto.ca some much-deserved publicity. I've been on this forum since long before I got a newspaper column and I must say it's a really great group of people that continue to stay fresh, civil toward each other and a really inspiring place. Okay, enough buttering you all up...
I may even write this one earlier than planned since I'm really digging on all your responses.
Listen, forget the KFC bucket. I'd like to set up some pied-a-terre within the billboard trusswork atop that junk shop on Danforth near Main. (Those of you who've been out there may know what I'm talking about.)
Now that I think of it, in addition to the Yorkville Firehouse 10 Toronto St would make a fine address. It would have to be residental, and not the centre of my future business empire. I would turn the back parking lot into a personal garden and a patio. The property would make such a great conversation piece when entertaining. And I can walk to work. The only thing I wouldn't have are views.
