Cities across Canada demand to be seen. Be that by shopping in downtown Toronto, a bike ride along Vancouver’s lush seawall, or by meandering beside the river in Calgary; they steal hearts with their bustle, eco-consciousness, and culture.

Where better, then, to soak in the sights and sounds than a high-end condo? This curated collection offers inspiration to those in search of a refined city hotspot to call home.

Victoria Park, Calgary

Loft-style living awaits in this amenity-rich penthouse. You may never have to leave a building where every whim is satiated by the high-end gym, billiards, lounge, and hot tub—and more. An unrivalled panorama awaits on the balcony, with Calgary’s green neighbourhoods stretching outwards, framed by the Rockies in the distance.

Time spent in the spacious, open-plan kitchen is time well spent in the company of state-of-the-art features: granite countertops, a five-burner Bertazzoni gas oven, flat-panel ebony stained cabinets, and metallic tile backsplash complete the modern look.

The final piece of the puzzle is the four-piece ensuite bathroom, where hectic days fizzle away in the depths of the whirlpool bath.

What sets this condo apart? Let’s start with the chic white and wood accents, 17-foot ceilings, and lakefront access. But this two-storey penthouse’s crowning glory is an unbeatable location. It’s just steps from the Rogers Centre, the city’s finest shopping options, and a wealth of nightlife venues.

While the decor may be modern, the view of the lake from every room is timeless—the perfect backdrop to accompany a glass of wine after a full day.

Nuns’ Island, Montreal

See Montreal at its finest. That’s the ethos of this ultra-modern Montreal penthouse, with over 4,000 square feet of floor-to-ceiling windows to let the world outside, in. But the true charm of this condo lies within the environmental design and thoughtful material selection.

The geothermal building works to reduce the eco-footprint of luxury. And with both indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna, fitness centre, steam room, and spa, you’ll be able to enjoy that luxury with a sense of wellness.

West Vancouver, Vancouver

This west coast beauty is situated in coveted West Vancouver; the downtown core is only a quick drive over the iconic Lion’s Gate bridge. Here, a slower pace of life plays in contrast to the wealth of activity options offered by nearby mountains and parks.

Have the best of both worlds. Enjoy all the trappings of city living without compromising on luxury with these one-of-a-kind condos.
