The place

One of the biggest units in a converted warehouse near Ryerson University. There’s no balcony, but the building does have a huge shared rooftop space with barbecues, gardens and a path for walking dogs.

Here’s the entrance:

The history

The building dates from 1910, but was expanded in the 1930s and 1940s. It was originally built for Simpsons’ mail-order business and went on to fill Sears Catalogue orders before being converted into 600 homes in 2000. An HR consultant has lived in this unit for the past decade. (We showed off another condo in this building in June.)

Big selling point

The unit has huge windows, allowing for great views from the living and dining area, the master bedroom and even the bathtub.

Possible deal breaker

Unless you’re into cherry-red cupboards, the kitchen needs an update. At least there’s some space to work with:
