155 Cumberland Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5R 1A2
Since the early 1960’s a unique two storey penthouse apartment stood atop the office tower at 130 Bloor Street West. Accessed from a discrete entrance on Cumberland, it belonged to philanthropists and society couple Rose and Noah Torno. The 10,000 square foot penthouse was designed in the modernist style of famous American architect Philip Johnson with large windows and large planes.
In creating Nº 155 Cumberland Street, the development team retained the Torno two storey penthouse on levels 13 and 14 and built above it and below it creating high-end residences that mirrored the architectural design and quality of this original penthouse. Existing floors 11 and 12 were converted from office space into five condominium suites. Seven new levels, adding an additional nine suites, were also built above the original penthouse creating an irregular tower faced in limestone.
Residents use the same private entrance that the Tornos did which opens to a luxurious lobby with two private express elevators. All suites feature large terraces or balconies and outdoor barbecuing is permitted. Ceiling heights are eleven feet and the penthouse and sub penthouse levels feature twelve foot ceiling heights. Interior finishes were done by builder Joe Brennan with suites having floor to ceiling unobstructed windows and radiant in-floor heating.
