Do not buy

(2.0 out of 5 stars)
by Toronto123 Nov 19, 2019
While the location is central and the units are modern and bright, I would highly discourage buying in this building for the following reasons: At any given time, 1-2 (out of 5) elevators are down for “maintenance” which can last weeks to months. On top of that, another elevator is often unavailable during moving times. Come to this building on any given night and you’ll see a looong line of angry residents waiting for an elevator. It is overrun by Airbnb guests who leave garbage everywhere. The pool amenities are constantly down for repair. At least once per week. They just notified us that there is no visitor parking in the building going forward. At all. So hopefully your friends and family never want to come to visit.

Do not live here.

(1.3 out of 5 stars)
by Iced Jun 26, 2019
Having lived in the building as a renter for the last 2 years, I highly discourage anyone looking to purchase a unit or rent a unit to live in to choose this building. The occupancy in the building consists of 80% Airbnb users, making it feel unsafe, dirty, and like living in an unregulated hotel. While there have been changes in the security team, they still fail to stop loads of Airbnbs that tailgate into the building behind residents - meaning you never know who's in the building and for what purpose. The architect's decision to include only 2 elevators for 30 floors, and an additional 3 for the next 32 floors - is inhumane. Keep in mind that AT LEAST one of these elevators is usually broken for months at a time. Leaving 62 units of occupants - along with the Airbnb guests several suitcases - fending for 4 elevators. Honestly, if you're considering this building, don't.

Curved unit layout

(3.0 out of 5 stars)
by SN Oct 24, 2018
The curved layout of units here creates a lot of dead space. Also pillars in the middle of some units occupy additional space. The Concierge typically lets everybody in. Amenities are quite ok. High speed elevators which is a must for such a tall building.

Good building for owners

(5.0 out of 5 stars)
by Daniel Sep 30, 2018
Building is generally well-constructed with good materials in the units. Concierge and security services are excellent and staff are consistently friendly. Between Ice 1 and 2, there are two gyms (weights and cardio), a pool, children’s play room, massage room, several party rooms, etc. Lobby and common areas are usually well maintained. There have apparently been elevator and fire alarm issues in the past however these have not been prevalent lately.

a beautiful building

(4.0 out of 5 stars)
by Sam V. Dec 27, 2017
The condo developer is known for commercial real estate. This complex has two phases I and II. Architecturally really nicely done from outside - completely glass, frosted glass. The lobby area conveniently connected to the path. Most units have really nice views - that's very positive for the downtown Toronto. This condo complex has a gym and a pool. The gym is on the simpler and smaller side, not as big as you'd expect when looking at the building from outside. Very nicely hallways going with the theme of ice. The units are on the smaller side though.

Great for young professionals

(4.3 out of 5 stars)
by Ali H. Nov 25, 2017
You live directly in the downtown core with a few minutes walk to many buildings in the financial district. 5 minutes walk to the waterfront in case you are tired of cars and noise. Probably not the best place to live with a family but very good if you are young and work nearby. The building itself is very nice and stands out among other downtown skyscrapers.

directly in the downtown

(4.0 out of 5 stars)
by Linsey M. Nov 12, 2017
If you work in the downtown, one of the best places to live in - very close to the Toronto business core. It is directly connected to path so you can get to work without going outside (at least I do). Do not expect too much of green space around, it is downtown hardcore - tons of roads, highways (including Gardiner highway) and cars every hour of a day. My unit could have been larger.

Very "busy" building...

(4.3 out of 5 stars)
by Rodney W. Oct 11, 2017
Very "busy" building with high traffic of young people. The building itself very tall with high number of units - that probably explains such busy common areas. Great city/lake views from the windows. A decent size gym. There is also a swimming pool.
