The lofts of 957 Broadview Avenue

The lofts at 957 Broadview Avenue were converted in 1986 from a 1927 event hall. It was a social club of some sort – men returning from WWII would attend events here. Later it changed into more of a dance hall. But perched high on the hill overlooking Todmorden Mills, there isn’t much like this in Toronto, with the view overlooking the city.

There are only 12 units in the building, multi-level units that are much like townhouses. Seven units have street-level access, rooftop patios and multi-level layouts. They range in size up to 1,400 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, featuring 10-foot ceilings and refinished maple hardwood floors.

957 Broadview Avenue
Private garages run along the north side of the building, with direct access into the foyers of some of the units. Up the stairs and you are in a fireside living area with a few steps leading up to the kitchen. Up another level are the bedrooms, while the top floor is an open-concept loft leading to the roof with north and south-facing patios.

The last sale in this low-rise loft north of Broadview & Danforth was in 2007, making them a rare find for house hunters. Monthly fees are low for such a small building.

957 Broadview Avenue
Head south to The Danforth and you are quickly in the heart of Toronto’s Greektown. This premier location features far more than souvlaki and tzatziki, with a major emphasis on all sorts of restaurants. Non-carnivores will be pleased to find the Big Carrot Common, home to the Big Carrot grocery store, health dispensary, and smoothie/juice bar.

A quick jog downhill gets you to Todmorden Mills Park’s walking trails, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, ice rink, playground, pool, football/rugby/soccer field, and tennis courts – never mind bocce, cricket, lacrosse, and lawn bowling. Plus the Todmorden Mills Heritage Museum and Arts Centre.

957 Broadview Avenue
Only a couple of blocks south to the Broadview subway station, with the DVP just around the corner. This location puts the whole city at your disposal.

The Bartlett – 8 Bartlett Avenue

The lofts at 8 Bartlett Avenue are housed in a converted 1907 rope factory, just north of Bloor. A small, boutique loft, it houses only 6 units. Each features loads of exposed brick and authentic post and beam construction.

The Bartlett Lofts - 8 Bartlett
Curiously, the loft next door at 6 Bartlett was once a twine mill, which makes one wonder if it supplied the rope factory at number 8…

Behind the building is an old boiler factory that is being converted to the Lanehouse Lofts. I hope they treat it with as much respect as Alice Street Holdings did when they converted it in 2001.

The Bartlett Lofts - 8 Bartlett
Sales in this turn-of-the-century factory loft building are rare, and less expensive than you would think. The lofts are typified with exposed and sandblasted wooden beams and columns. The two-storey lofts have soaring 13-foot ceilings and hardwood floors. Quality finishes have been used throughout. The units typically have two bedrooms and are well-lit with large windows and skylights.

The Bartlett Lofts - 8 Bartlett
The loft is located just east of Dufferin Street and north of Bloor Street. The lofts range in size from 1,090 to 1,390 square feet. Condo fees are low. A double parking space is included with one of the units, with others requiring street permit parking.

Bartlett Lofts

Built in the early 1900s, the building at 6 Bartlett Avenue has seen many uses during its more than 100 years of life. Originally a twine mill (which possibly fed the rope factory next door at 8 Bartlett?), it later became a garage of some sort, then finally a fishing tackle company. I have also heard that it was some sort of Portugese hall, a “casa beneficio”.

6 Bartlett Lofts
But it made its final change in 1985, when Allan D. Gordon Associates converted the venerable old warehouse into 13 lofts. Each unit in this boutique loft building is similar, all with two-bedroom / three-level floor plans. Windows are at either ends, only the end units have windows on the sides. The open-concept, multi-level layout creates a 30-foot light well down through the centre of the units, bringing sun from the skylight throughout. All of the lofts have private roof top terraces, exposed brick and exposed ductwork. And quirkily enough, they have wood-burning fireplaces. Grab a bear skin rub and get cozy!

6 Bartlett Lofts
Having been converted in 1985, 6 Bartlett is one of Toronto’s first original loft conversions. The project actually won an Ontario Renews Awards for the conversion from factory to residential housing. Owners are reaping the benefits of the rapidly gentrifying Bloorcourt Village. The neighbourhood is home to many of the smaller, original Toronto loft projects such as 41 Shanly, 8 Bartlett, 6 Bartlett and the Hepbourne Hall Lofts; plus the newer 40 West Lofts and Church lofts on Dovercourt.

6 Bartlett Lofts
The lofts range in size from 1,300 to 1,600 square feet, and each unit includes one separate exterior garage space. Maintenance fees are on the low side for their size, the same for each unit – but don’t include hydro. Security is by way of an enterphone system. The Bartlett Lofts offer unique living in Toronto’s west end, steps to the Bloor Subway Line and Dufferin Mall.
