THE ONE AND ONLY PENTHOUSE AT THE FOUR SEASONS PRIVATE RESIDENCES

JIMMY MOLLOY, 1

SALES REPRESENTATIVE

416.925.9191 | jimmymolloy@rogers.com | www.jimmymolloy.com

This spectacular penthouse is perched atop the flagship hotel and private residences of the worldrenowned Four Seasons Hotel: the only global luxury brand ever created in Canada. Boasting unparalleled panoramic views over the entire city, it is located in Canada’s most important cultural and residential neighbourhood – Yorkville. A short distance to the financial centre of the entire country and minutes away from one of the world’s great airports, this location is not only the center of the city but also the gateway to the entire world.

With over 9000 square feet of living space, full radiant in-floor heating, 4 oversized terraces and soaring ceilings that are over 12 feet – this 4 bedroom home in the clouds is matchless. The suite includes $5 million of upgrades and a separate home automation system valued at $1 million, state of the art appliances, wine cellars, a walnut-paneled library and home movie theatre. With the inspiration and influence of the architectural symmetry of Versailles and an abiding respect for the classical form, this unit is set apart from all others. Here we discover the Classical reinterpreted with a narrative of contemporary style.

The grand, atmospheric interior with its gallery halls and soaring glass walls are a testament to the extraordinary achievement of a home that is irreplaceable. The architectural flow of this expansive suite, created with complementary shades of marble used in elegant and imaginative ways throughout, allows for a family environment that is unique and inviting.

Everything is at your doorstep, no need is overlooked, no want goes unanswered. Your life is complete as you live with the gracious knowledge that your comfort is ensured by the world’s best hotel brand. There is only one penthouse of this quality and style. Like the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace or the Taj Mahal, there is Only One. The Penthouse at the Four Seasons Private Residences Toronto.

TORONTO’S

ANSWER TO FINDING AFFORDABLE HOMES

On April 20th, the provincial government introduced the Ontario Fair Housing Plan. It is an omnibus package of measures with the stated intent to “help more people find affordable homes, protect buyers and renters and bring stability to the real estate market.” Two questions emerge: will it work, and what will be the impact on the real estate industry, particularly the residential resale market? The highlights of the Ontario Fair Housing Plan are: • A 15 percent non-resident speculation tax on the price of homes in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. • The expansion of rent control, to include those buildings built after 1991. • Developing a standard residential lease. • A program to leverage the value of surplus provincial land to develop new market and affordable housing. • Empower the City of Toronto and other municipalities to introduce a vacant homes property tax. • Ensuring property tax on multi-residential buildings is fair. • Development charge rebates to encourage the construction of rental accommodation. In addition to the above-measures the Plan announced that it would review assignments (or “paper flipping”), double ending (or the practice of a single broker/salesperson representing both the buyer and seller in the same transaction), and partnering with the Canada Revenue Agency to explore more comprehensive reporting requirements so that correct federal and provincial taxes are paid. There is no doubt that the expansion of rent control will immediately have the effect of limiting the rent increases that landlords can implement. Unfortunately, this measure may be responsible for creating a greater rental housing problem in the future. Developers will likely stop building purpose built rental projects, and the measure may even cause developers to reconsider condominium projects that were also designed to appeal to landlord-investors. The current Liberal government will be long gone when the

2

supply of rental accommodation reaches crisis proportions. The foreign investor tax may work. However, investors can be very savvy business people and will inevitably find ways around the governing criteria and imposition of the new tax. The new legislation will have some impact, but that impact should be minimal. There is ample evidence that the residential resale market in the greater Toronto area is being driven by domestic, and not foreign investor demand. That being the case, aside from a possible momentary “let’s wait and see” lull, the residential and recreational markets in Toronto and Ontario should continue much as they were before the announcement of the Ontario Fair Housing Plan. The market is being driven by historically low mortgage interest rates, 100,000 net migration annually to the greater Toronto area, and a lack of housing supply, both rental and home ownership. None of these matters were addressed by the Plan, precisely because it is beyond the power of the provincial government to do so. So, if the ultimate goal is to make housing in Ontario affordable, the Plan will fail, because even the extension of rent controls will in the longer term result in a rental housing problem. People will continue to require housing in the greater Toronto area. Prices will not come down until there is more supply. At Chestnut Park Real Estate Limited, Brokerage (“Chestnut Park”) we will continue to offer our buyer and seller clients expert and professional services, trust, integrity, knowledge and discretion. We will guide and move our clients through the uncertainties that the Plan will create over the short term. Notwithstanding any possible turmoil in the market our goal must remain that the consumer experience with Chestnut Park and its brokers/sales representatives should always be one of excellence.

THE 1000 ISLANDS The 1000 Islands is located on the St Lawrence River mid-way between Toronto and Montreal. As part of the historic “inland highway” into Canada’s interior, it has a rich history. Today it is a haven for cottagers, boaters, fisherman, hikers and cyclists and is part of Parks Canada’s National Parks system and the Ontario Provincial Parks network. Development has been carefully monitored resulting in the natural beauty and wilderness feeling being maintained. Although the international border runs down “the middle” of the River, residents cross it regularly to visit, play and dine. The area on both sides of the River is rich in history, culture, amenities and activities, to say nothing of the breath-taking landscape that generally distinguishes it as one of the continent’s unique playgrounds. Residents and visitors can take advantage of many fine restaurants, shops, markets and land and water sports. Owning a property in the 1000 Islands is a privilege. Whether it is living on an island with the fun and enjoyment of boat access only, or, living seasonally or year round on mainland properties overlooking the spectacular river vistas, the 1000 Islands is a place that once you come to visit, you will never want to leave. $2,750,000

Chestnut Park supporting The NEW NEW artists at the Gala opening

Chestnut Park has always had an invested interest in art. Great art and fine homes work synergistically. We were very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of yet another extraordinary event and sponsoring the Museum of New 25th anniversary.

The Museum of New was founded by Joseph Drapell and poet Anna Maclachlan in 1998 in Toronto, to promote the art of the New New Painters and other artists. Located in the heart of Toronto’s Queen West Gallery District the entire venue is now available to artists and curators who want to explore new exhibition possibilities. On April 8th The Museum of New celebrated an exhibition of New New Painting with their opening night. Some of the artists responsible for the new demanding and significant art were present at the exhibition.

14

This impressive exhibit featured ‘New New Painting’ by 12 artists. Their featured works chronicle the history of New New Painters and point to where the movement has been heading in recent years. The New New Painters are often regarded as a group with a single vision, yet the considerable diversity of their work proves otherwise. Mr. John Henry was the first curator to exhibit New New Painters (NNP) in 1991, (even before their grand opening in Paris in 1992). He also organized the second largest exhibition of NNP in 1999. In his foreword to the catalogue of the exhibition “25 Years of NNP” he wrote: “I feel it’s only a matter of time before this group of masterful artists receives recognition at the highest level.” In spite of many subsequent exhibitions, the artistic innovations of NNP proved to be “ugly” or “too new” to be understood in their own time and artists had to go ‘underground’. The renowned Canadian filmmaker, T.W. Peacocke is producing a documentary about this experience entitled ‘Art, Freedom, and Cliché.
