With the summer season upon us, many Torontonians make an annual pilgrimage to Canada’s greatest theme park, Canada’s Wonderland. What many people do not know is that Palace Place has a unique connection to Canada’s Wonderland.

So, what do these two Toronto landmarks have in common?

They had both been built by Bramalea Limited, which at the time was Canada’s biggest commercial and residential builder.

In 1979, Taft Broadcasting, headed by the legendary Dudley Taft Sr., had formed a partnership with Bramalea’s parent company, Trizec Properties Inc., which had been led by the Bronfman family, to build Canada’s most ambitious theme park ever.

Coming in at a cost of $122-million, Canada’s Wonderland had opened its doors on May 23, 1981, and it has since become one of Canada’s greatest theme parks.

So, which landmark cost more, Wonderland or Palace Place?

Answer: Palace Place

From 1988 to 1993, Palace Place had been built at a cost of $200-million by Bramalea Limited. The sheer cost at that time was a testament to Palace Place’s unrivalled construction. Bramalea had a very special vision for Palace Place that, to this day, has yet to be duplicated or equalled.

Do you know what other infamous celebrity uses the exact same desk in their home office in one of New York’s most luxurious condominium residences?

Palace Place Trump

Answer: Donald Trump, Trump Tower, NY

Palace Place Melania Trump

Melania Trump shows off the Trump home office at Trump Tower, NY.

Whether you love him or hate him, Trump has defined luxury real estate since the 1980s.

Both Trump and Palace Place have recognized the benefit of using classical pieces inspired by the Louis XV era to create an ambience of wealth and refinement.

Modern lobbies are only modern for so long, requiring condominiums to update them frequently at a major expense for the owners. Following a more classical design is timeless, following the highest standards of 5-star luxury.
