Living the loft life you’ve imaginedSend This Listing To A Friend
Calling all loft lovers! Meet the authentic loft conversion you’ve dreamed about, in the heart of downtown Toronto. There’s a lot to revel in at 155 Dalhousie St.
From hardwood and concrete floors, to airy 10-12 ft ceilings, the entire unit exudes contemporary and refined taste. White oak, engineered hardwood flooring and walls, with extra sound blanket beneath the flooring to help mitigate sound transfer. Natural light shines in from warehouse windows!
Almost everything has been updated. The kitchen is sleek and newly renovated, with white corian countertops and an integrated sink – zero seams here — which means it’s easy to maintain and makes for great clean-up.
The bathroom boasts rare Turkish walls and floors, as well as a quality faucet and shower. The vent fan even has an integrated Bluetooth speaker inside!
How to maintain this minimalist aesthetic? Custom storage throughout means there’s a space and place for everything, from cabinet built-ins in the kitchen to the closet organizers and bike pulley in the entryway.
You’ll rarely hear noise from any neighbours as the building is solid concrete, which also means stable temperatures throughout the year.
This loft really is one of a kind – there’s barely two units alike in this building. Merchandise LOFTS was the first loft conversion designated heritage in 1997, and the first large scale warehouse conversion at over one million square feet.
The building amenities are great, especially for those with dogs. With the close proximity to Eaton Centre, Ryerson University, restaurants, bars, and more, you can pretty well walk anywhere here. Live your best car-free urban lifestyle in the heart of downtown! You’ll be right on the Dundas streetcar line and a quick walk to the subway.
About the Building
Construction for Merchandise LOFTS began in the early 1900s, as the Simpson’s Warehouse. It was later used as the Sears Merchandise Warehouse, and was finally completed four decades later in 1950, after numerous additions. Today, the residents benefit from extensive facilities, including a Metro Supermarket on the ground floor, 24-hour concierge, an indoor basketball court, fully equipped gym, meeting room, games room, sauna, party room, a rooftop terrace with a glass-enclosed swimming pool, BBQ area and dog walk area. It also happens to be one of the city’s pet-friendliest buildings! Basically everything you could ever need is here, without having to leave.

About Church-Yonge Corridor
The Church-Yonge Corridor is where the big city hustle-bustle is. There is so much to see and do here, from browsing the trendy shops on Church Street, taking a stroll through Allan Gardens, immersing yourself in a live theatre performance or visiting an iconic attraction. It’s easy to see why the Church-Yonge Corridor is considered one of Toronto’s most happening hoods.
Church-Wellesley Village is steps away and hosts the city’s LGBTQ+ community. Every year when millions from around the world flock to the city for Pride Week, this is the centre of the action. The festival is a week-long celebration with concerts, exhibits, and of course the legendary Pride Parade.
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 serves as a community gathering place for events and hosts many year-round concerts and community celebrations. It’s 100% T.O.
Shopping in this hood is a breeze with so many different options from the high-end fashion stores on Bloor, to the trendy boutiques on Church, to the day-to-day retail that is found throughout the neighbourhood!
