Condo of the Week: $625,000 for a one-bedroom loft in a former Rexall warehouse in the east end
Address: 68 Broadview Avenue, Unit 521
Neighbourhood: South Riverdale
Agent: Heather Holmes, RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage
The Place: A corner loft on the fifth floor of the old Rexall Drug warehouse, which—unlike many industrial loft buildings—has a party room, a concierge and a rooftop garden and deck.
Bragging Rights: The warehouse-style windows let in plenty of light, and remote-controlled window shades block out the UV rays when you’ve reached your Vitamin D quota.
Big Selling Point: Lofts with balconies are rare. This one offers southwestern views over the downtown skyline.
Possible Deal Breaker: If you drive, beware of the DVP traffic during most daylight hours. If you don’t drive, you’ll have to contend with the Queen streetcar.
