Rental of the Week: $5,000 per month to live in a genuine loft near King and Spadina
A furnished one-bedroom loft in the heritage-designated Monarch Building.
The Monarch Building, which dates from 1915, was originally a luxury goods warehouse known as the Croft Building. The property was later owned by a conveyor belt manufacturer before it passed into the hands of a developer, who converted it into lofts 20 years ago. This unit sold to its current owner earlier this month. After a paint job and the installation of some new light fixtures, it’s up for rent.
