Office Space: $22.50 per square foot for some old-timey Casa Loma real estate (including a boardroom with a rotating bar)
ADDRESS: 287 Macpherson Avenue, suite 202
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Casa Loma
AGENT: Allan Consky, Royal LePage/ Johnston & Daniel Division, Brokerage
PRICE: $22.50 per square foot
OFFICE SPACE: An open-concept area with mill floors, exposed brick and oak panels in the boardroom that date back to the 193os.
WATER COOLER GOSSIP: The Georgian-style stunner was built in 1936 to house the head office of the Canada Mills Flour Company, and rumour has it that the company bigwigs brought craftsmen over from England to fashion the oak paneling. While office headquarters were on the second floor, the first floor acted as a loading space for trucks to cart the flour freighted from the CP Rail tracks behind the building. Though its industrial days are long over, the building’s old-timey character is still intact, even after a full renovation in 1975.
IDEAL TENANT: Fittingly, the last tenant to use the space was an ad agency—there’s a rotating panel in the boardroom that turns to reveal a bar. The place is perfect for Mad Men wannabes.
