About Candy Factory Lofts - 993 queen street west, toronto, on

The Candy Factory Lofts represents one of the earliest hard loft conversions in the city, and is arguably one of the best. Evidenced by the extreme rarity of listings, this building is hugely popular mainly because of the history of the building, as well as the size and quality of the 121 suites within the history-rich walls.

The smallest unit in this building is 857 square feet – perhaps not surprising when you realize that the conversion was completed in 2000, well ahead of the micro-unit condo boom that has descended on Toronto since. Original features of the building have been preserved, and which contribute to its extreme popularity.

The Candy Factory Lofts are about originality. 12.5 foot ceilings in most of the suites show off the original (sandblasted and spectacular) wood beams and ceilings, and much of the solid wood plank flooring still remains. Most of the penthouse units boast large square footage, and private rooftop terraces with spectacular views of the city and nearby Trinity Bellwoods Park. (One suite we’ve seen had reclaimed space from the original freight elevator, and the original door was preserved in the suite.) This is the finest example of ‘cool-loft-factor’ we’ve come across yet. It should be no surprise here that turnover is rare and buying a loft here can be competitive.


What We :The Candy Factory Lofts are one the best conversions in the city, in one of the best locations in the city. Nuff said.


What We Don’t: Although units at the Candy Factory Lofts do come at a premium, expectations of sellers can be even more sky-high. Most units are very open-concept, so if you want walls to your bedroom this may not be the right place for you. Some layouts can be odd, as architects had to work with the existing structure. Always in demand.
