Beach House Lofts – 1842 Queen Street East

The much anticipated sequel to the Academy Lane Lofts, the Beach House Lofts boast 12-20′ ceilings, large outdoor spaces and gourmet kitchens. The Beach House Lofts completed in 2005, the lofts sold out in less than a week. The second development by Streetcar Developments certainly helped bring more upscale urban living to The Beaches.

Beach House Lofts - 1842 Queen Street East
The Beach House Lofts is a four-storey, 12-unit condo building that is popular (and rare) because of its private, intimate atmosphere as well as its great location on the western edge of The Beaches. This also makes the building surprisingly close to downtown via streetcar, or on your bike.

Beach House Lofts - 1842 Queen Street East
The Beach House Lofts are true lofts with mezzanines and high ceilings. The ceilings rise as high as 17 feet and some have skylights on the top floor. The kitchens have high-quality cabinetry and granite countertops. This project is more original than most in this area and has real loft features, such as the industrial-style, modern architecture and lots of glass because of the large windows. Some units have some exposed brick, leftovers from the building’s past.

Beach House Lofts - 1842 Queen Street East
This linear building enhances the existing streetscape. Along with Academy Lane Lofts, Beach House Lofts won the 2009 Toronto Urban Design Award for “Building in Context, Private Mid-Rise.” The building from the outside blends in with the public Beach streetscape. But once inside, it feels very private, like a boutique hotel with an industrial feel. Though, unlike a hotel, there is no elevator, ensuring the stairs help residents get their daily exercise.

Beach House Lofts - 1842 Queen Street East
There’s a range in the loft sizes, between 615 and 1,748 square feet, and a wide range in the prices – that means there is probably going to be a an equally wide range in the demographics of the buyers. You only see maybe one per year come up for sale, so it might be a while before you see one you like.

For buyers with vehicles, there is a really cool automatic stacked parking system that you need to see to believe – it resembles a bunk bed for cars. The developer had to use this system for both the Beach House Lofts and for the Academy Lane Lofts because the lot was too narrow to put in a proper garage with space for every unit. But with a stacked unit, two cars can occupy the same spot, allowing for more parking in a tight space.

Argyle Lofts – 183 Dovercourt Road

Rising five stories, The Argyle Lofts was and remains the tallest structure in the immediate neighbourhood. The distinctive corner bakery entrance will continue to be the loft’s front door, with the clock retained as a reminder of the building’s industrial past. The City insisted on much of the retention, as the building was listed as heritage in 2003.

Argyle Lofts - 183 Dovercourt
The history and charm of this building set it apart from other industrial loft conversions in Toronto making it truly one-of-a-kind. The Argyle Lofts will continue to be a landmark in this prime residential neighbourhood. Finally completed in 2007 after some serious delays (heritage issues and whatnot), the building has been a hit with Toronto loft lovers.

Argyle Lofts - 183 Dovercourt
The Argyle Lofts converted the 1919 landmark Edwardian-style, five-storey former bakery into 86 lofts. The Ideal Bread Company was founded in 1909 by brothers William and Charles Carruthers and Robert McMullen. They demolished the small original 1873 building and hired the architect Sydney Comber to design their new factory, which R.G. Kirby and Son then built. In 1938, Ideal amalgamated with Wonder Bakeries, and production ceased in 1957. Since then, the building has had a variety of uses.

Argyle Lofts - 183 Dovercourt
The lofts in this lovely brick building consist of 1 and 2-bedroom lofts. The 1-bedroom suites are around 500-600 square feet in size, with the 2-beds in the 700 to over 1,000 square-foot range. There’s no shortage of natural light inside the units, as most have tall windows and open floor plans.

Argyle Lofts - 183 Dovercourt
The two-storey penthouse lofts afford spectacular city views through walls of windows and have private roof decks. The penthouses are set back from the fa├žade so not to detract from the architecture and are not immediately visible from the street below. Ground-floor units facing the street will have private front yards.

Argyle Lofts - 183 Dovercourt
Parking is hard to come by, though. Units do come up for sale fairly often, so be sure to get in touch if this building interests you.

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.
