Reading the news, you’d think that everyone is packing up their bags and moving to the suburbs because of the pandemic. Sales of luxury condos in the core have slowed. Remember, the pre-pandemic market was red hot.
Not so fast, though. As people adjust more to a new world, pandemic and post-pandemic, will what drives people to downtown living emerge to the forefront again? This executive suite in the St. Regis Residences is a perfect illustration of the reasons people buy luxury downtown.
After all, what is true luxury? Brokers and developers downtown will tell you buyers want the lifestyle options the downtown core offers. They want walkability and connectivity.
Why do people buy luxury downtown?
And buyers want full-featured, spacious home layouts in a condo, like they had in their Rosedale, Forest Hill and Lawrence Park homes. Suite layouts, aesthetics, architecture, location, and pricing – these are the selling features. Another big one is new-age, next-generation elevator technology. Now add health and hygiene to that list.
The St. Regis is one of the most luxurious condo/hotel developments in the city. Elegant, exquisite, with bespoke luxury offerings, residents and guests soar over one of the city’s most prominent intersections – Bay & Adelaide.

Signature rituals are an integral part of the St. Regis brand and experience. That is highlighted by the observance of the Bloody Mary Ritual, the Evening Ritual, and the Afternoon Tea Ritual.
This executive suite in the St. Regis Residences is up for sale at $3,198,880.
“It’s a hotel residence, so you have access to VIP facilities,” says Tammy Masoumi, a salesperson with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “The location as well makes it unique, right downtown, walking distance to all the restaurants, the Financial District. In term of luxury, you have access to that hotel lifestyle.”
“Ritz Carlton is selling now for $1,800 per square foot. This building is selling for $1,200 per square foot, average.”
Masoumi adds international buyers in particular are contacting her because when shopping for luxury condos in the city, they recognize an opportunity.
