Toronto Real Estate - Victoria Lofts, 152 Annette Street, Toronto
A century old church converted into hard lofts
A magnificent church at 152 Annette Street in Toronto, in existence since 1885, together with its Sunday school, has been converted into 38 loft units. Most of these units have private outdoor space. Flats and two-storey units range in size from about 600 to 1,800 sq.ft.
Despite the difficulty in converting such a structure with heavy outside walls, a small number of extremely large windows and massive wooden trusses inside, the architect managed to preserve the exterior character while providing light to the lofts inside. Interior walls of the upper units had to follow the angles of the trusses which would otherwise block passage between rooms.
The location is excellent, close to shopping, restaurants, library and schools, and with an easy access to the subway. The residential neighbourhood offers quiet, treed streets, and High Park is within an easy bike ride.
If you are interested in exploring a possibility of loft purchase, whether in a converted church, factory, or other commercial building, I will be happy to assist you. Please give me a call at 416-322-8000 and have me paged, or e-mail me.
