Condo of the Week: $650,000 for a cleverly designed loft in Moss Park

And the rooftop terrace:
The 1930s building was converted into 10 condo units in 2001. This one has had the same owner since that year. He did a big renovation in 2012, to create a bedroom for his daughter. Now the family is growing again, so it’s time to move.
