View as Map

We've complied a list of Toronto's most unique, unusual or just plain weird condo names in and around the city. Some contenders making our list include the Rain Condos for its uninviting tagline, "the forecast in Oakville calls for rain," and the Beyond the Sea Condos, Etobicoke's most musical address. In the city, we have the Star of Downtown on Wellesley Street and for those young and rich, the Yonge+Rich Condos on Richmond. Did we miss any? Add your suggestions in the comments below.

1. Rain Condos

Copy Link
521 Kerr Street, Oakville
ON L6K 3Y7, Canada

Making our list for its uninviting tagline, "the forecast in Oakville calls for rain." The website features rain drops and smiling people holding umbrellas.

2. Hot Condos

Copy Link
4635 Metcalfe Avenue, Mississauga
ON L5M, Canada

Another cheesy tagline calling the HOT Condos the "hottest address in Mississauga." The building's interior also includes some flashy red decor, in case you didn't realize how hot it really is.

3. Palm Condos

Copy Link
5740 Yonge Street, Toronto
ON M2M 3T3, Canada

According to the website, living in the Palm Condos is like being on vacation. First, Toronto doesn't have palm trees and second, the condos are located at Yonge and Finch, not on a beach.

4. Success Tower

Nothing says success like the Success Towers.
