About Academy Lane Lofts - 1852 queen street east, toronto, ontario

The Academy Lane Lofts is a boutique low-rise located on the outskirts of the popular Beaches Neighbourhood in Toronto’s east end. This 4-storey hard loft conversion (although you’d hardly know it from the outside) was formerly home to both a bowling alley and a boxing gym. The ground floor is home to retail, while three floors above house 10 suites ranging in size from 834 to 1668 square feet. Exposed brick and beam construction is showcased in natural light from massive windows in both single and two-storey layouts.

Most of these suites benefit from private outdoor space. ‘Beach’ living is all about a love of the outdoors, and proximity to the beach and boardwalk is an obvious draw here. Neighbourhood residents love to get outside, especially when it comes to entertaining – the tiered terraces in some of these units can help.

The retail strip along Queen East is continuously evolving and offers all the modern conveniences one could hope for. Local pubs, restaurants, cafes, and boutiques are all well supported locally, and foster an independent flavor and sense of community here that’s well known. This is a thriving community that makes these stylish spaces a great place to call home.


What We : There aren’t many conversion lofts in the Beaches, which is more of a house-oriented ‘hood; Academy Lane Lofts offers an opportunity for condo loft living in a highly sought-after area. Green space is everywhere and the beach a short walk away.


What We Don’t: West of Woodbine is less organic and developed compared to “prime” Beaches farther east.
