BuzzBuzzHome: When we mined our data to find the smallest new condo suites available in Canada, Montreal had the honour of being home to the smallest of the small, with a condo on the market at just 286-square feet. We’ve come a long way since then and it’s clear that Montreal isn’t just home to shrunken spaces.
Here’s our roundup of the five largest new condo suites currently available in the city, organized by smallest to largest based on complete size (we’re even counting how many times the city’s smallest condo can fit in each unit). Whether you’re looking for a space with an at-home gym, wine cellar or a terrace that spans the entire length of a penthouse, these impressive units have it all.
Dr. Penfield, L’Avenue Condos, Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal
This penthouse atop the 46th floor of the tower comes equipped with 5,301-square feet of interior space and 70-square feet of exterior space. There are three bedrooms in the high-flying suite, though there’s an option to turn then den/library into a fourth bedroom. Other perks include a dining hall and private balconies off the master bedroom, kitchen and second bedroom, family room and foyer gallery. Another bonus? Suites in the the condo are named for Montreal streets and who wouldn’t want to live in a unit in a space with the moniker of Dr. Penfield, of Heritage Moment fame. The price? It’ll all cost you $4,535,900.
