Annex Lofts – 113-115 Dupont Street

The Annex Lofts are an amazing luxury loft conversion at 113-115 Dupont Street in a unique conversion from a commercial building. This intimate 7-suite building has a fantastic Annex location on Dupont between Bedford and Davenport. Stunning contemporary finishes contrast with the amazing original concrete loft structure. Extraordinary living spaces with great light, high ceilings and expansive wall spaces perfect for art. True loft living in a great neighbourhood setting.

Annex Lofts - 113-115 Dupont Street
Remarkable and stylish lofts in one of the Annex’s (very few and) most fabulous boutique loft buildings. A few blocks east of the Devonshire soft lofts, as well as the gorgeous Madison Avenue Lofts, this area is finally getting some of the luxury lofts it deserves – and that people are looking for.

Annex Lofts - 113-115 Dupont Street
Magnificent details and finishes abound throughout these huge lofts. Unparalleled master bedrooms with massive windows and spa ensuites. Soaring 12′ ceilings, the finest design and craftsmanship with superb use of natural stone, wood and exposed brick. From the random-sized-plank wood flooring imported from Germany through Toronto’s Floorworks to the sculpted modernist vanities by Italy’s Antonio Lupi bathroom design company, every detail inside the three-storey building was chosen for flair as well as function. All lofts have walk-outs to balconies or massive terraces with with spectacular city views.

Annex Lofts - 113-115 Dupont Street
Inspired by the true meaning of a New York loft. This magnificent loft conversion by award winning Zinc Development created massive (the smallest is around 2,500 square feet up to the biggest at 5,000 square feet) personal residences with soaring ceilings, towering windows and unbelievable urban views. Appointed with only the finest appliances and finishes, including Bosch dishwashers, AEG ovens and gas cooktops, Liebherr fridges and custom stainless steel hoods.

Completed in late 2007, original buyers met with developer Ken Zukerman to customize their lofts – not surprising given their $1-2 million price tag. But they got 2 or 3 bedrooms, 3 washrooms and more square footage than most homes for the money. And with a location that is steps to all that Yorkville and the Annex has to offer, restaurants and shopping are never far from home.

Academy Lane Lofts – 1852 Queen Street East

Originally built in 1913, the structure at 1852 Queen Street East was once part of the East Ford sales and service station. Owner William Humphries Moore turned it into a bowling alley and dance academy in 1923. Moore had emigrated from Ireland with his 10 children and originally lived in the west end of the city. The stonemason, who worked on Toronto’s Old City Hall, moved to the Beaches in 1906.

Academy Lane Lofts - 1852 Queen Street East
A former Armory from the early 20th century, this building has also housed a boxing club and a popular community bowling alley. It is one of the only loft conversions in the Beaches. It was rebuilt and converted to lofts in 2003, but it integrated the older building as a part of its modern construction. You can see bits and pieces of the original brick walls in the halls, as well as some wooden beams and other exposed parts of history.

Academy Lane Lofts - 1852 Queen Street East
Academy Lane Lofts gets its name from its former use as the Academy Lane Bowling alley. Located on Queen Street East just west of Woodbine Avenue in the Beach, it rises 4-storeys and houses twelve very unique single and multi-level lofts. The building housing the lofts has new third & fourth storeys built on top of the original two-storey building. Developed in 2003 by Streetcar Developments, it was one of the first projects Les Mallins attempted.

Academy Lane Lofts - 1852 Queen Street East
The building was vacant and abandoned when purchased by Streetcar. But their conversion to the Academy Lane Lofts changed this once desolate corner in The Beaches into a vibrant hub of trendy retail and modern living spaces. Along with Beach House Lofts next door, Academy Lane Lofts won the 2009 Toronto Urban Design Award for “Building in Context, Private Mid-Rise.”

Academy Lane Lofts - 1852 Queen Street East
The lofts feature exposed beam construction, over-sized windows, and gourmet kitchens with granite countertops. The lofts range from 863 to 1,701 square feet and many feature a balcony or terrace. Academy Lane Lofts was one of the first condos to use an innovative stacked parking system. Toronto really needs more quality infill developments like this.

Academy Lane Lofts - 1852 Queen Street East
This loft’s ideal location offers you a great opportunity to live the Toronto Beaches life. Enjoy a stroll on one of the area’s many beaches; or wander through Kew Gardens, the big park leading south from bustling Queen Street. Queen East is where you will find innumerable specialty shops and restaurants. The picturesque side streets are lined with Victorian and Edwardian homes, side by each with modern infill houses. And make sure to find time to check out the Fox Theatre, Toronto’s oldest operating movie theatre!

The Abbey Lofts – 384 Sunnyside Avenue

The Abbey Lofts is a 24-unit loft conversion carved from a neo-Gothic church that was built in the Medieval Revival style in 1911. The light-grey solid limestone walls and stone cladding of architect William George Burns’ church, built for a Methodist congregation, are unchanged in nearly a century. The 90-foot church tower, built with the same limestone, quarried in St. Mary Ontario, is a square campanile with pseudo ‘battlements’ on top.

Abbey Lofts - 384 Sunnyside
The medieval Revival style is also referred to as Tudor, as in English architecture from the early 16th century. Some aspects of the Tudor style were borrowed from late Medieval castles or palaces, which often had overlapping gables, parapets, and patterned brick or stonework. Medieval churches were often fortified places of sanctuary and the Sunnyside church has some of the features of a fortification, but with a huge arched stained glass window to let light into the vaulted structure.

Abbey Lofts - 384 Sunnyside
The church itself has changed names and congregations several times. In 1925, the Methodists merged with other Protestant denominations, and set up the Howard Park United Church. Then in 1970, the United Church congregation left the building and it was acquired by a group of Italian evangelicals. In 2003, they in turn moved from their Howard Street Pentecostal Church to a new building in Vaughan. The church on Sunnyside Avenue, in the High Park-Bloor area, was acquired by the current developers.

Abbey Lofts - 384 Sunnyside
The architects have taken care to retain as much of the original 1911 Edwardian interior as possible. There are original, exposed limestone walls, original church doors (with newer windows) and stained glass archways.

Inside the former church, one Abbey Lofts unit has retained the three original solid wood church doors, fronting onto a 30-foot terrace. The elegant, arched doors have glass insets. Almost every unit has original exposed walls, some with 13-foot ceilings in sunken living rooms.

Abbey Lofts - 384 Sunnyside
The Abbey Lofts have open-concept living spaces, with galley-style kitchens and island eating areas. Some have stairs down to sunken living rooms, which can lead to a den or extra bedroom reached through double doors. The ceilings are very high and help to create a large open atrium-style space.

Abbey Lofts - 384 Sunnyside
The majority of the ground floor suites have spacious terraces and sunken living rooms. This building only has 24 units ranging in size from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet. The Abbey Lofts is one of the richest character lofts in the city. The lofts feature original 17-foot, wood-vaulted ceilings, exposed limestone walls and restored stained glass windows.

Abbey Lofts - 384 Sunnyside
What’s really special about this building is that it is in the heart of an actual neighbourhood, at Sunnyside Avenue and Marmaduke Street. Most other lofts are right on busy streets, but The Abbey is in a quiet family neighbourhood right across the street from Howard Public School. This location gives easy access to all the goodies along Roncesvalles and is only two blocks from High Park.
