The history

Formerly a CBC warehouse, the building was converted into lofts by Sorbara Development Group in the mid 1990s. This loft was completely overhauled and remodelled this past winter, its concrete flooring switched out for white oak. The new tenants will be the first residents to enjoy the loft’s new look.

Major perks

The master bedroom is one of the few in the building that gets any natural light. And although the place doesn’t have a balcony, it does have access to a shared rooftop terrace, as well as a private enclosed dog park off the back of the building.

Possible deal breaker

The open layout means the master bedroom isn’t completely enclosed, which might be problematic for privacy-seeking housemates or couples with children. A few temporary dividing walls could address that issue.
