Condo of the Week: $780,000 for a two-storey loft in a former perfumery on King West
The Place: A two-bedroom, two-level unit in a 1930s-era perfume factory at King and Niagara.
Bragging Rights: The walk-in closet in the master bedroom has enough shelving for a Kardashian-sized shoe collection.
Big Selling Point: The roomy bedrooms and kitchen feel more like a house than a loft—perfect for downtowners who crave more living space but have no desire to maintain a lawn.
Possible Deal Breaker: On hot summer days, the neighbourhood abattoir can unleash a decidedly unpleasant odour. But reprieve may be on its way: a recent application to change the site’s zoning (from industrial to mixed use) has the realtor predicting it could soon be sold to developers.
