About 155 Cumberland St — 155 Cumberland
Just northeast from the intersection of Avenue Road and Bloor Street West, prospective buyers will find the luxurious and unique condos at 155 Cumberland Street. These exclusive homes are set in an idyllic location for Torontonians in search of a modern home close to downtown Toronto.
Built in 2010, 155 Cumberland has a highly distinctive façade of limestone, metal and glass. Its north and south faces are composed of staggered, cubist-inspired geometric shapes that jut out to form balconies and terraces. At the same time, this aesthetic works to highlight the building’s individuality amongst the tamer neighboring architecture.
Originally the penthouse home of Rose and Noah Torno, a wealthy Toronto couple that wanted to place their home on top of a glass office building, like those they had seen in 1960s Manhattan. Today, their former home has been renovated, while maintaining that singular 60s style. Together with the newly added 14 Yorkville condos on top of the original structure, 155 Cumberland is one of the city’s most exclusive properties in the city.
155 Cumberland’s residential floors extend over 11 storeys, however they house just 15 luxury condos. These high-end homes are large for condos, especially in this area, ranging from just under 1,800 square feet, to over 10,000 square feet in the building’s largest penthouse. Most of the suites come with 1 or 2 bedrooms, and 1 to 3 bathroom, while all Yorkville condos for sale in this building come with private terraces or balconies, some of which even feature their own hot tubs.
These boutique condos are designed with open-concept spaces, soaring 11-12 foot ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. These design elements flood spaces with light, showing off the luxury aesthetics that complete the interior designs of the homes. Floors are finished with hardwood and polished stone in foyers and bathrooms, while additions like built-in shelves, gas fireplaces, heated floors, and private elevators add to the wow factor of the suites.
The kitchens in all of the units are uniquely designed, featuring their own style of breakfast bars, kitchen islands and contemporary, chef-inspired layouts, while all include top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances and modern cabinetry. Bathrooms are equally luxurious, with their freestanding soaker tubs and elegant multi-piece counters.

Yorkville is known for its near endless supply of upscale stores, restaurants and bars, all of which are a short walk away for residents.
