The Most Luxurious of Them All: Our 76th Floor Penthouse Suite Rental



With a new season comes the urge to make a change. If that change is a change of your scenery, we can definitely help you out with that. We’ve got some incredible rental suites available in our Aura building for people looking for a way to live the downtown lifestyle without committing to purchase.

Being the tallest residential building in Canada, having a great view of the surrounding city is a given. The unit we’re looking at today is on the 76th floor and is currently one of the highest rentals you can get in our building - it also just so happens to be one of our penthouse suites. If you’re looking for something more high-end (literally), then this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom penthouse suite rental is for you.

Thinking Ahead: The Most Futuristic Skyscrapers

The future is here! Well, almost.
For years, architects and designers have been obsessed with coming up with out-of-this-world concepts for buildings. An annual competition from eVolo calls upon people to submit the craziest, most futuristic idea for a skyscraper that they can think of, and entrants oblige. These concepts often centre around sustainability or surviving a post-apocalyptic world, but more often than not it’s just all about what’s on the outside.

The Story of... The Empire State Building


What was once the tallest building in the world is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. The Empire State Building is an icon of New York City - a pinnacle for building tall, a historical landmark, and of course a popular movie prop (think King Kong and Sleepless in Seattle). All of these things you probably already knew, but there’s a lot more to the building than that, that’s why we’re here to shed a bit more light on the story of the Empire State Building.

Living with Transit: Our Convenient Connection to College Station


If there’s one thing that’s important to any urban dweller, it’s their proximity to transit. In Toronto we have streetcars, buses, and subways, and having easy access to them is key. The fastest and most preferred transit method is of course the subway, and being close to a subway station is something a lot of Torontonians think about when they’re choosing a neighbourhood to live in. We don’t exactly want to rub it in, but here at Aura we’re pretty lucky to not only have College Station right beside our building, but we don’t even have to walk outside to access it!
