This loft conversion as authentic as it gets at the historic Merchandise Building
A real loft is hard to find, but this 1 bedroom in the legendary Merchandise Lofts offers the rare opportunity to buy in one of Toronto’s most famous loft conversions. This is a true industrial living space with 12 foot ceilings, concrete floors, barn doors and exposed ductwork – even the lighting is industrial.
The urban location, right in the middle of downtown, is uber convenient, close to Ryerson and the Eaton Centre and the subway. it has a 98 walk score! But you may not want to leave – the amenities are second to none. Seriously, there is everything from a basketball court to an enclosed rooftop pool and even a dog run. Here, a big dog is no big deal; there are no size restrictions. And unlike soaring towers, this building is the kind of place where people know their neighbours.
Worried about parking in the core? No problem. This unit also includes parking–often hard to get with smaller units.
Merchandise Lofts began its life in the early 1900s as the Simpson’s Warehouse. Today, the building’s size means residents benefit from extensive facilities, including a Metro Supermarket on the ground floor, 24-hour concierge, indoor basketball court, fully equipped gym, meeting room, games room, sauna, party room, and a rooftop terrace with a glass-enclosed swimming pool, BBQ area and dog walk area. Merchandise is one of the city’s pet-friendliest buildings. Basically, everything its residents could ever need, without ever having to leave!

About Church-Yonge Corridor
The Church-Yonge Corridor is the definition of Central! A diverse neighbourhood in the eastern part of downtown Toronto, it’s popular for its historical vibe, fabulous restaurants, cafes, boutiques, salons and pubs.
The Merchandise Building is steps to the subway and Dundas Square – the beating heart of Toronto. Here, shopping tourists at the Eaton Centre rub shoulders with Ryerson students, concertgoers heading to Massey Hall and the doctors and patients at St Mike’s hospital. It’s 100% T.O.
There is a grocery store in the building, green spaces at Ryerson Community Park and St. James Park and the parkette right behind your building.
