Boutique living in the trendy Queen West ‘hoodSend This Listing To A Friend
Experience city living at its finest in this ultra-hip, studio loft in the heart of it all.
The authentic loft-like design greets you at the front doors, with high concrete ceilings, exposed ductwork, and brand new engineered hardwood floors.
The floorplan is rich in functionally, giving privacy and purpose to each designated space, while remaining airy and open. A hallway leads you to each area of the unit, starting with the modern bath, tucked away to the right of the entrance. Here you have a chic tub sink, tiled floors and a newly renovated glass shower. Next you have a den-like, bedroom space with a large, double closet. Floor-to-ceiling windows lead you to the main living and dining space where you have a corner style kitchen.
You’ll spend your summer nights outside, relaxing and bbq’ing on your generously sized terrace that overlooks John Street. Host a pre game with friends before hitting the Queen Street bars, or people watch while curled up with a glass of wine. It’s hard to get bored when you’re in such a vibrant location.
About the Building
The One-Six-Nine Lofts is the epitome of a no frills building that boasts stylish spaces in a boutique building that is ALL about location. Technically in the Grange Park Neighbourhood, this 11 storey mid-rise building houses just 46 Units ranging in size from 499 to 1487 square feet.
Concrete everything and exposed ductwork lend to the aesthetic appeal of this soft loft building, as do sliding barn style doors and some industrial inspired lighting. The amenity list in the building is extremely light…which is to say, there are none. Typical buyers here appreciate this, as it keeps maintenance to a minimum, and there is plenty outside your door if you need a gym or theatre. Fortunately the associated condo fees are also light.
