Lofts & Unique Spaces
The former Irwin Toy Factory has been converted into 215 residential loft units. The open plan concept provides a sleek and fluid feel to the space. Creating a unit that exudes space, air and light appeals to the natural instincts of potential buyers. The large windows, retaining the warehouse look, provide an abundance of natural light with a breathtaking night view of the city’s lights.
Arguably Toronto's most famous hard loft building. The Candy Factory lofts are situated in the trendy design district surrounded by designer stores and fashionable restaurants. The ultra wide hallways, exposed posts and 12ft wood ceilings are hard not to like. This Building has it all. The project was completed in 1999/2000 by Metro Ontario Group. There are 121 lofts in the building. A must see for any loft enthusiast and one of our favourite Toronto lofts.
The Chocolate Co Lofts, formerly the Paterson Chocolate factory was converted in 2004 by Plazacorp. The building houses 144 lofts and is situated opposite the lovely Trinity Bellwoods park in the design district. It is arguable the best location of any Toronto loft development in the city. The building has both hard and soft lofts. The old chocolate factory to the east of the building offers gorgeous yellow brick, timber posts and 12 ft wood ceilings.
This hard loft building offers loads of character, charm and history. There are no right angles in the building, with sloping floors and skewed brick walls being testament to the 140 year old original warehouse structure, situated above the Starbucks Store in Toronto's trendy St Lawrence Market neighbourhood. Exposed brick, ductwork and wood beams are seen in all units.
Converted from a historic vinegar factory around 100 years of age, the Queen City Vinegar Co. Lofts offer true loft living in downtown Toronto. Located conveniently near the DVP and Queen Street East, the building houses 38 suites and is only 5-stories tall. Polished concrete floors, exposed brick and massive warehouse-style windows are available in all suites.
These hard lofts are BIG beauties ranging between 4,000 and 5,000 sq.ft. They have all the bells and whistles, including 14 ft ceilings, wooden beams, exposed brick and private elevators. A short walk to the Rogers Centre or a short crawl back from the many King West night spots.
The building was originally developed in 1873, at which time the famous baker, John Dempster, owned his first bakery and grocery store. After a long delay, the lofts where completed in 2007. The developer finishes are inconsistent so don't judge all the lofts at once. Some units have been beautifully finished by meticulous owners. On the fringe of funky Queen W, you're only a 5 minute walk to bars, galleries and the legendary Drake Hotel. Located at Argyle and Dovercourt.
There is nothing small about this building, with 14 ft ceilings, massive concrete mushroom pillars and front doors big enough to build an ark. This building certainly demonstrates the term 'open concept'. Completed in 1998, the Sorbara Group have done a splendid job with the conversion of this former CBC prop warehouse. Today, the 100 lofts within this concrete mountain differ by more than just finishes, as creative owners through the years have manipulated the spaces to create some funky living
The building has been superbly restored by Canderel Stoneridge and features red brick and yellow wooden posts so rich with character you cannot help falling in love with it. Originally built as the Massey Harris Head Office, the property was converted in 2003 to create 46 unique loft units. The penthouse units are effectively soft lofts as they are a more recent extension above the original structure.
