Elton John purchases luxury Toronto penthouse

Rocket Man Elton John has added to his already impressive property portfolio, picking up the penthouse in the King Toronto development in downtown Toronto.

According to The Dirt, King Toronto was the brainchild of Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, with the aim of becoming a “work of art” that helps define the local area.

The legendary musician purchased one of six penthouses, with his known as “The Treehouse,” tucked away in the western end of the building for an undisclosed amount

Renderings of the more than 220sq m unit show light oak floorboards, custom brass detailing and a floating staircase that links the levels together.

There are also white Venetian walls and a sea on windows and walls of glass that give views across the city.

The three-bedroom and three-bathroom unit will feature a large tree that will grow in a planter and up through a double-height atrium.

One of the other terraces also features a spa, located off the main bedroom on the upper floor.

The King Toronto building also offers residents access to the ground floor shops and restaurants, a huge sun terrace, a communal party room, a fitness and yoga space, a board room, and an indoor lap pool and hot tub.
