The 500, at 500 Sherbourne Street, is a sleek high-rise tower that offers condominium, townhouse and loft units. The largest spaces, with 2 bedrooms and a den, are 1360 sq. ft. and the smallest 1 bedroom is 877 sq. ft.
I’ve chosen The 500 for SelectCondos because it represents the best of downtown luxury residences. Designed by the award winning architect, Paul Northgrave and built by the Times Group Corporation, your introduction to high end living begins in the 2-storey marble-clad lobby. The ceiling height of the building’s entry is 25’ and a striking stone water feature cascades 18’ down. In the lobby you will find a concierge available 24 hours a day for your safety and convenience.
Around the corner from the lobby is The 500 Lounge, a room equipped with a fireplace, wet bar, dining room and washroom. There’s also a business centre with 2 meeting rooms on the ground floor. Heading up to the 2nd floor, you will find The 500 Fitness & Spa. It houses fitness equipment, a yoga/aerobics studio, change rooms and steam rooms.
On the rooftop, there’s a breathtaking garden with a water wall and a dramatic fireplace. You can cook something up at the barbeques outside, or use the indoor lounge with a kitchen and a bar, depending on the weather.
The suites at The 500 are equally as enticing. They feature 9, 10 and 11’ ceilings, 40” upper kitchen cabinets and individual security systems. Additionally, the fee for all the amenities mentioned above is less than 40 cents per sq. ft.
Just south of Bloor Street, east of Jarvis, The 500 is a fantastic downtown location if you’re looking for an east end Toronto condo. It’s just down the street from the Sherbourne subway station and walking distance to restaurants, cafes, boutiques and cultural venues such as the Phoenix Concert Theatre.
