Custom mansions in the sky

Friday 20 Jul 2012

Celebrated custom home builder Joe Brennan and leading residential developer Camrost-Felcorp Inc. joins forces

Signifying the continued steady growth of high-end real estate in Toronto, Camrost-Felcorp is now launching one of the most distinguished pieces of penthouse real estate in the country, with the new release of Imperial Plaza Sky Penthouses. The first time partnership with custom home builder and designer Joe Brennan of Brennan Custom Homes Inc. will provide purchasers with the opportunity to custom design up to 10,000 sq ft of upscale living space. The project will transform the former Imperial Oil building at 111 St. Clair West.

Imperial Plaza Sky Penthouses are part of Imperial Plaza's Private Residence collection that offer homeowners access to exclusive amenity areas including a private lobby with an express elevator and concierge service, as well as a premium lounge and fitness gym. Located on the crest of the St. Clair Escarpment, owners will have word-class panoramic views of Toronto's varied skylines from midtown to the financial district all the way to the lake. "There is an incredible indoor-outdoor relationship. Anything you would design in a luxury home you can have here, your sense of space and light is enhanced." describes Brennan.

From open concept to classic formal, contemporary to high tech, Brennan will work one-on-one with Sky Penthouse purchasers to design and build out each space to their exact specifications and style. Double height libraries with skylights, home theatres with screens that span the entire wall, private gyms with squash courts, kitchens with walk-in pantries, wine cellars, and up to 4,000 sq ft of outdoor living space equipped with bars, outdoor kitchens and living areas, even a rooftop infinity pool are just some of the possibilities.

Once the headquarters of Imperial Oil Ltd., Imperial Plaza stands as an architectural legacy for the city of Toronto and a tribute to mid?century modernism. Built with a limestone façade and welded-steel frame construction, the building is most known for its dramatic polished marble lobby housing York Wilson's two mural masterpiece ‘Story of Oil'. David Feldman, President and CEO of Camrost-Felcorp said: "Imperial Plaza is a unique project from beginning to end. It has fantastic scale and detail unlike anything else in the city along with unprecedented views."
