155 Cumberland is the most elite residential address in the heart of Toronto. The crown jewel in the development is the existing penthouse apartment spread across the 13th and 14th floors. Unique to Toronto, it was designed in the 1960s in a classic style and is widely regarded as one of the finest of its kind in Canada. All the rooms open onto a two-storey central atrium and feature high ceilings, travertine on floors and walls, and wood paneling from oak logs brought from England and milled specifically for the apartment. In total, the penthouse is 11,000 sqf plus 4,500 sqf of terrace.

After converting the 11th and 12th floors of the office building to residences, the program stacked on top of the penthouse is an asymmetrical tower of seven new storeys, faced in Indiana limestone, containing full-floor luxury suites. The two floors below the penthouse, which were previously used for office space, were cut back to hold four new half-floor residential suites.
