Condo of the Week: $850,000 for a quintessential loft in a much-admired Queen West building
The Place: A one-bedroom unit in the Candy Factory Lofts, overlooking Trinity Bellwoods Park on the Queen West strip. We featured a two-bedroom suite in the same building last year.
Bragging Rights: Cinematic pedigree. The loft is currently owned by film director Sarah Polley’s father, and is the setting for several scenes in Polley’s acclaimed 2012 documentary, Stories We Tell.
Big Selling Point: The warehouse windows, industrial vibe and “Candy Factory” moniker are all authentic. The building, which dates back to 1914, was formerly the home of Ce De Candy Company, maker of such notable sweet stuff as Rockets and candy necklaces.
Possible Deal Breaker: You’ll have constant internal debates over whether to wait for the Queen West streetcar (there’s a stop right outside the building) or just start walking.
