Rental of the Week: $3,400 per month for a brick-lined loft across the street from St. Lawrence Market
An unfurnished two-bedroom condo at the St. Lawrence Market Lofts.
In its previous lives, this 160-year-old building was a grocery warehouse and candle factory. It was converted into lofts in 2003. The owner lived in a one-bedroom unit two floors below for nine years before moving into this penthouse in 2015. He has now moved to a home in Riverdale and is looking to lease his old pad out.
The property is across the street from St. Lawrence Market, and it’s a 15-minute walk to other downtown attractions, like the Toronto Islands ferry terminal. The owner completely overhauled the kitchen and bathroom just a year ago.
Here’s the living area:
The suite has tons (like, actual tons) of exposed brick:
Here’s the newly renovated kitchen:

Possible deal breaker
The master bedroom, on the unit’s upper level, has a ledge that opens onto the living room below, meaning there’s very little privacy for the occupants. This place may not be ideal for a family, despite its generous size.
