A one-bedroom, one-bathroom home in the Space Lofts, a 220-unit complex built in 2004 on Richmond just west of Sherbourne. Amenities include a gym and sauna, a party room, a meeting room, a 24-hour concierge, a guest suite and visitor parking. It’s within walking distance of the Eaton Centre and St. Lawrence Market, with easy access to Queen station as well as several streetcar lines and bus routes. The building also shares a courtyard with George Brown College’s culinary school—an affordable, delicious lunch-break option.
The unit itself has been for sale since September 5, when it was listed at $699,999. It was reduced to its current price on September 18.
Forget Toronto’s obsession with boxes: this building’s lobby is a rotunda.
Here’s the foyer. The stairwell walks up to the bedroom and accommodates loads of storage underneath.
The kitchen is equipped with a peninsula that doubles as a breakfast bar, along with Caesarstone counters and backsplash.
Note the sneaky storage niche above the fridge.
Now the living area.
This angle highlights the exposed-concrete cantilevered ceiling and corner workspace.
The 17-foot window wall is a conversation starter.
An opposite view offers a peak inside the bedroom. And don’t forget the swing chair.
What it’s like to look down from the loft.
The bedroom has a glass railing and polished concrete floors.
That’s the ensuite bathroom on the left and the stairwell to the foyer on the right.
The hallway to the ensuite is flanked by two sliding-door closets, one them housing the washer and dryer.
A glimpse at the bathroom.
The balcony has unobstructed, north-facing views. That cluster of trees is Moss Park, which will be the site of a new Ontario Line station.
Swivel east to get a better look at the neighbourhood, with St. Jamestown and Regent Park in the distance.
Moving on to the shared amenities: this is the meeting room.
Here’s the gym.
There’s also a sauna for post-workout sweat sessions.
Finally, the party room, which comes with this lounge as well as a kitchen, a bar and a dining area.
