I apologize for the title of this article… and that's going one step better than developer Great Gulf has ever done, never apologizing as far I as know, for the very silly name of this building: X The Condominium. I suppose we've always been quick to forgive though as it's such a terrific building, a residential homage to Mies van der Rohe's TD Centre, with a dash of Mondrian - well, dashes of Mondrian - scattered across the façade, all expertly honed by architectsAlliance and with finely crafted interiors by Cecconi Simone. The building captivated UrbanToronto during its time in sales and then while under construction, and we were lucky enough to be toured through a nearly completed penthouse floor in 2010, culminating in a well-read article that showed off the building's fantastic uptown views.

Two years later we have another treat: suite 4002, forty floors high on the building's southwest corner, is up for sale, and we went in to take a peek… well more than a peek; this high up you get quite the eyeful. Come on up and enjoy this latest visit to one of Toronto's more fantastic condo suites on the market.

We sweep thorugh the lobby to the elevators, and head into the suite. It's 1,660 square feet large - penthouse size - with a second bedroom that has its own ensuite. You'll also see a den below in the floor plan, which would also work great as an office, or library, or as it is in the suite currently, a work-out room. And there's lots of closet space, two balconies, and floor-to-ceiling wall-to-wall views.

Not bad?! We take in the living-dining-kitchen area from several angles…

…note the hardwwod floors, the nine-foot ceilings, the European appliances…

…and the whole city at your feet.

Right in the middle of this expanse, perfectly placed for the best views: the red chair (every unit needs one of these)!

Of course, you get those those views from outside too: here's the west-facing balcony…

… and here's what the west-facing balcony faces:

…or look a bit to the left…

…or if you're out on the south-facing balcony, here's the view looking south:

We can only imagine how great this all looks in the evening. If the unit tweaks your fancy, head back up to the Suite 4002 link near the top; that will bring you to the agent's page on the property.

Meanwhile, we head back down to ground level, stopping to peer in at a couple of the amenities, checking out the fitness equipment…

and the lounge with its billard tables, large screen HDTV, and sitting areas.

The building also has a bookable dining room and catering kitchen facilities, and quite a nice pool atop the podium. More info on everything here can be found in UrbanToronto's dataBase entry for X, linked below the article. We'll leave off with one more shot, taking in a favourite piece of Toronto public art, Shayne Dark's Double Vision, installed just outside the doors of X.
