ADDRESS: 1 Macklem Avenue
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Little Portugal
AGENT: Lease from owner (Mariana Grezova)
PRICE: $750 per month
OFFICE SPACE: A small studio on a quiet side street near Dufferin Grove, the office is shared with Collectivity, a communications firm. The open-concept space on the main floor of a three-storey building features exposed brick walls, polished concrete floors and plenty of natural light (all four walls are lined with windows). The current owners plan to inject a little more green in the property by putting in a yard at the side of the building this fall.
WATER COOLER GOSSIP: Built in 1900s, the building’s first industrial incarnation was a spice factory. Later, Macklem’s Baby Carriage and Toys, which is still in business on Dundas Street West (near Roncesvalles), used it for manufacturing toys.
IDEAL TENANT: Given the location, what you do really doesn’t matter—it’s all about the uniform you wear while you’re doing it. We suggest raw denim (cuffed, of course), desert boots, a chambray shirt, colourful socks, poorly kept facial hair, a vintage rucksack and, if you really want to go all out, a bowtie.

One thought on “Office Space: $750 per month for a sunny vintage spot near Dufferin Grove”
Hi, I am interested in seeing this space but the link to Ms. Grezova’s email does not seem to work. Is there any other way to contact her?
