The Imperial Building is a Toronto landmark that sits at the top of the St Clair escarpment. Built-in 1957 as Head Office for Imperial Oil, the entrance from St Clair welcomes the visitor into an impressive rotunda in keeping with the era of construction. The lobby is graced with a large clock in roman numerals set in a mosaic of gold tiles. Marble dominates the space, with the LCBO on the east side of the corridor and Longo’s Grocery on the west side.
Camrost Felcorp took over the property in 2010 and inside the building’s heritage shell, created a modern residential building of unique quality. The south views are iconic Toronto, and this is what Suite 810 offers in abundance. From the 11 foot windows, 810 looks south over the city rooftops, past the cluster of towers that sit below the line of vision, and on to the lake.
Open the door to Suite 810 and you are immediately greeted with the long view south and a modern loft design. The suite begins with an office library on the left. Built-in bookcases climb the height of the suite with enough room above for a display of a series from your art collection or your aspiring collection.
Following your eye down the hall to the main space, the kitchen with a large island and ample storage is on the right. This flows to the open dining and living areas. The ceilings here measure just under 14’. The windows are equipped with electric blinds with remote control.
Next to the living room is the main floor bedroom. This bedroom is served by the four-piece bath opposite the office/library. The bedroom has blinds for full privacy or enjoys the option of opening the sliding doors to take in the view. A large closet with lighting punctuates its superb functionality.
From the upstairs bedroom, the night lights of the city are mesmerizing. The large walk-in closet and ensuite bath complete the comfort and seclusion.
The windows have panels that open for those who enjoy natural air on both levels.
