The Action: Early in the fall, the luxury One St. Thomas Residences had few vacancies other than this two-bedroom-plus-den corner suite. It was picked up for $2.615-million in a matter of days.

What They Got: New York architect Robert Stern designed this eight-year-old high-rise with luxury amenities, services and suites, such as this 2,497-square-foot unit with a formal dining room and living room with a gas fireplace and loggia with a second access point from a den.

• Appointments are upscale, such as hardwood floors, granite floors and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, as well as three bathrooms, a walk-in closet in the master and his-and-her closets in the secondary bedroom.

• A laundry room, locker and two-car parking complete the unit, which owes $2,474 monthly for water and use of common areas.

The Agent’s Take: “The building is beautiful – and newer – so it offers a pool, gym, concierge, visitor parking and valet parking,” agent Elli Davis says. “And it’s right on the Mink Mile on Bloor Street, so it’s a very sought-after building.”

The suite was staged to showcase its core features. “It’s quite original, but well kept,” Ms. Davis says. “It has a large balcony/terrace and two bedrooms and a den.”
