Condo of the Week: $660,000 to live in a former fur warehouse in the Annex
The Place: A two-level unit in the Creed Building, a former fur storage facility that was converted to lofts in the 1990s. (We featured another of the building’s 19 units about two years ago.)
Bragging Rights: There are two entrances: one inside the building, and one private street entrance just for this unit. That’s a potential selling point for any would-be hermits that don’t want to make small talk every time they come home from work.
Big Selling Point: With a 662-square-foot main level and a 773-square-foot lower level, the space is large, especially compared to newer downtown digs. The monthly maintenance fees work out to about 55 cents per square foot.
Possible Deal Breaker: The lower-level bedroom could be considered a basement, the very mention of which is enough to scare some people off—but thanks to an open space on the main level and a wall of windows above, the room still gets plenty of natural light.
By the Numbers:
• 1,435 square feet
• $788.68 in monthly maintenance fees
• 2 washrooms
• 2 levels
• 2 entrances
• 1 (+1) bedroom
