Completed in early 2022, Panda Condominiums is Lifetime Developments’ high-rise addition to the eclectic fabric of one of Toronto’s preeminent cultural districts: Yonge and Dundas. Located on Edward Street, just northwest of Yonge Dundas Square, Panda is a distinct 30-storey tower that earned its name from the interplay of black and white finishes that define the building’s exterior.
100m above ground level, on the uppermost floors of the building, are two unique penthouse suites, and with a package of images shared with UrbanToronto by Lifetime Developments, we are taking you inside to show what Downtown penthouses are all about.
Starting with Penthouse 4 on the building’s 30th floor, the suite is designed to be flexible for the needs its future residents. With a total area of 1,178 ft², two primary bedrooms occupy different corners of the floor-plan, each with an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet, while a third room presents a hybrid space that can be used for an additional bedroom or an office. A third bathroom, also complete with a shower, serves this extra room as well as the common area.
In the common space, an open concept layout allows for a kitchen and dining area to flow off the living area. The kitchen enjoys integrated appliances and an island countertop that — besides sitting and eating — adds more space for storage. The living area can comfortably accommodate large furniture in varied configurations, and benefits from the proximity to the large windows, which occupy the majority of the north wall.
Light also comes in from the west, where a door from the living area offers access to a covered terrace, one of the highlights of the suite. The outdoor space offers a total area of 140 ft², and gives residents a mix of views and privacy, with additional features like a gas line for a grill.
One floor below, we have Lower Penthouse 1, with more to offer by way of area. The suite boasts 1,658 ft² of interior living space, and is designed with the urban family in mind. Of the three bedrooms included, the primary bedroom features an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet, while the two other bedrooms are separated by another complete bathroom. A den space also allows for a workstation area to be enjoyed without having to sacrifice a bedroom or part of the living space.
The kitchen and living area offer similar features to penthouse 4, with a modified colour scheme that trends more towards natural wood tones, and features a number of interesting lighting fixtures that are all included. A similarly scaled terrace also expands the livable space by an extra 122 ft², and benefits from the same views and weather protection.
As the residential typology of Toronto continues to move towards increased density, these suites offer a snapshot of the ways that vertical communities have evolved to offer viable and vibrant living options for the residents of Toronto. Both of these penthouse suites remain available for purchase, and any inquiries can be sent to the listing agent, Romey Halabi, who can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
