What we like about this loft:

  • Neighbourhood is gentrifying quickly
  • Maintenance fees are absurdly low
  • Over $200K in upgrades
  • The mezzanine is functional with lots of headroom throughout.
  • Priced well considering size upgrades, low fees + parking.
  • Unique factor: Former CBC studio, rehearsal space.
  • Lorne Michaels, Jim Henson, Glenn Gould once worked in this building.
  • Unobstructed West view w/rare balcony

Final Thoughts:

The seller says they have spent $200K on upgrades in this unit and I don’t doubt this. The more you explore this unit, the more it is clear the vast amount of time and money that has been put into designing the space. The pictures don’t do it justice. Storage is an element of this unit that the seller has addressed well. Custom closets in the master bedroom, washroom and hallway are all high-end products and blend seamlessly into the space. Upstairs headroom is functional, unless you are 6.5ft+ tall. Unobstructed west view. Balcony. Parking.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD – CORKTOWN

A RAPIDLY GENTRIFYING NEIGHBOURHOOD 

As Toronto undergoes its largest-ever revitalization, some of its forgotten neighbourhoods re-emerge from the past. One area that is definitely seeing its share of development currently is Corktown, the area bordered by Parliament, King, Shuter and the DVP. It’s a part of the city the Globe and Mail deemed “one of five neighbourhoods to watch next year” in a recent piece. Step outside in Corktown on any day now and you can literally hear the construction around you and see the cranes in the distance.

 

A little late to the game after so many of the city’s downtown neighbourhoods, Corktown is finally seeing the revitalization it has so long deserved. A couple of years ago, Streetcar Developments began buying up land in the neighbourhood to build smaller scale, low-rise condo buildings. Streetcar has built the Corktown District Phases I and II on King Street East; Corktown District condos on Sumach with new townhouses on Bright Street (pictured at top); and the Trinity Lofts on Eastern Avenue (co-developed by Dundee Realty) – all appropriately sized projects for the properties on which they sit.

 

A huge Corktown landmark is the Dominion Brewery Building, built in 1889 on the north side of Queen, west of Sumach. The building serves as offices now. Beside it is the Dominion on Queen and behind it are the Brewery Lofts on Sumach Street, an old CBC warehouse that in the 90s became one of the city’s original loft conversion projects.
