About the Loft
A unique loft, even within a building of unique lofts.
Authentic: of the boutique Tannery Lofts’ (circa 1905) 36 lofts, only the first 3 storeys are part of the authentic converted space from the original factory. Private: enjoy total privacy with a unique private entrance – no elevator waiting or common entrance required. But the real highlight is undoubtedly the 400 square feet of private terrace, complete with custom planters.
Vintage hard loft + private outdoor space? Nearly unheard of in Toronto.
This loft oozes character: from wood slat ceilings and exposed beams to huge windows and original brick walls. With 14 foot ceilings throughout, a spacious living and dining area, modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, and a raised enclosed bedroom with tons of storage underneath, this is loft living at it’s best. Renovations and customizations include: a recently renovated bathroom, unique closed bedroom (our Sellers say it’s like “sleeping in a sound-proof room”), custom partition wall on the terrace, customer Levelor black-out roller shades and floor to ceiling sheers.
Love the terrace as it is and worried your outdoor design skills aren’t up to par with the current owners’ eye for detail? Fear not: the hanging patio lights, built-in planters and privacy curtains are yours to keep.
Street permit parking is available.
Regent Park: The Neighbourhood
Nestled between the quaintness of Cabbagetown, the green spaces of Riverdale and the shiny up-and-coming newness of Corktown, Regent Park is like being everywhere at once–where the best of urban living is just a few blocks away in any direction: cafes, patios, restaurants and some of best green spaces downtown. And commuting couldn’t be any easier, with biking trails, streetcars the DVP all on your doorstep.
Regent Park has already reached the halfway mark of a 15-year, $1 billion revitalization project, where a mix of integrated housing is paving the way to an urban community of the future. An incredible new aquatic centre, the Daniels Spectrum Arts and Cultural Centre, new sports field and a farmer’s market are just some of the new attractions, a massive investment that is making Regent Park the envy of communities around the city.
Regent Park is a study in rapidly changing demographics. A scan of the streets and streetcar stops during rush hour sees them dotted with young professionals heading to Toronto’s business district. In the evenings and weekends, it’s a lot of the same people walking their dogs in nearby Riverdale Park and Corktown Common at the foot of River Street or heading out for brunch in Cabbagetown or Leslieville.
Decidedly still an “urban” neighbourhood with a natural grit factor, Regent Park today offers an incredible investment opportunity. With the nearby Pan-Am games facilities and housing well underway, the huge Donlands redevelopment will soon feature new parks, recreation facilities, retail, and inevitably…higher prices. Now is an ideal time to get in on the ground floor of a wave that is transforming the central east end, in a historic building that will always stand out among its new neighbours-to-be.
Perhaps this article from Toronto Life (May 2013) sums it up best: “Regent Park now has better amenities than many highly sought-after, bidding war–rife Toronto neighbourhoods.”
