About One Six Nine - 169 John Street, Toronto, ON

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 lends 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 (recently adjusted to make sure reserve funds are healthy).

One Six Nine Lofts is in the heart of Queen Street West, just a short block north in fact, and there is little that can’t be found in walking distance as evidenced by the perfect 100 walk score. Retail, restaurants and a wide variety of entertainment and nightlife offerings live in the area and given the short walk to everything downtown, it’s no surprise it’s a popular pick with young professionals.


What We LOVE: You can watch the soundstage set up at the MuchMusic stage from your balcony, but the street noise is still surprisingly not bad. Bar-goers from the club district just south rarely walk by the building.


What We Don’t: Parking is very limited, and the parking that does exist is on a New York-style lift system, which can be tricky if you have a large car. Oh and there’s only one elevator, so if someone’s moving in…
