Condo of the Week: $599,000 for a Stockyards industrial loft in a former tannery

Neighbourhood: The Stockyards Agent: Anya Ettinger, Bosley Real Estate
Price: $599,000 Size: 900 square feet Bedrooms: 1 Bathrooms: 1 Maintenance fees: $530


The place
An open-concept industrial unit in the Stockyard Lofts. The location is surrounded by bustling neighbourhoods—the Junction to the west, Little Jamaica to the north, Carleton Village to the south—and is a short walk to the St. Clair streetcar.
The history
This complex, built in 1910, has a long history as a tannery. In 1996, developers transformed it into condos, dividing its interior into 27 units. It opened to residents in 1999, and many of the original owners, including the seller of this particular unit, still live there. Realtor Anya Ettinger says that residents relish the building’s sense of community—they’ll often stop by during showings to chat and offer testimonials.

The tour
The unit is on the first floor of the three-storey structure and fronts leafy Prescott Avenue.
