Condo of the Week: $1 million for a loft with super-tall ceilings near Roncesvalles
A bright, two-storey loft, with polished concrete floors, exposed ductwork and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The unit is part of the Robert Watson Lofts, a 1903 confectionery factory that was converted into condos in 2007. This condo isn’t in the converted part of the development, though. It’s an all-new unit that was designed in the style of a factory loft. The seller bought it during pre-construction.

Big selling point
This place is walking distance to Roncesvalles, where restaurants like The Commoner and La Cubana serve up trendy grub. It’s also close to multiple public transit routes, the railpath and plenty of craft breweries.
Possible deal breaker
In the summer, the unit’s ground-level, gated terrace is surrounded by shrubbery. In the winter, though, the space has a view of a parking lot:
