About The Glebe - 660 pape avenue, toronto, ontario
The Glebe Lofts, completed in 2005, was one of the early church conversions in the city. Converted by Bob Mitchell, who is responsible for many of the famous early Toronto Lofts, the 4-storey building is home to just 32 hard lofts ranging in size from approximately 1000 to over 2000 Square feet. Originally home to the Riverdale Presbyterian Church, these multi-level lofts were constructed entirely in the original building with no additions to accommodate the conversion.
Most of the suites at the Glebe Lofts feature 14-foot ceilings and incorporate thermo pane windows and skylights to take full advantage of natural light in the open plans inside. Exposed steel, hardwood flooring and most suites with terrace or balcony are just some of the features. The historical uniqueness is really the thing most likely to attract prospective loft buyers to this particular spot, as it is a true hard loft conversion in a very old building.
Historical living in a neighbourhood like this is pretty rare as well. Pape Station and the Danforth are practically outside your door. Health food and markets, restaurants, daily conveniences and the uber popular Taste of the Danforth Summer festival are all just a stones throw away. While you’ve really no need for a car here, north-south options to get you down to the Lakeshore and Gardiner are plentiful.
What We : Units are spacious and multi-level, feel like townhomes, inside, and no two are the same. There’s even underground parking. Plus you’re living in a church!
What We Don’t: You could forget that you’re living in an old church, as there aren’t many original elements left inside…which kind of defeats the purpose. To create living space inside a large empty church, they needed a whole lot of drywall.
