Attention to details pays off in unique loft building
Careful thought went into 37-unit, live-work project
Large-sized suites ran counter to marketing advice
Excerpt from an article by Ellen Moorhouse – Special to the Toronto Star
Think of a bathroom with subway-tiled walls topped with concealed, indirect lighting highlighting a restful blue colour above.
This is how intern architect David Peterson decided to incorporate colour into the clean, streamlined room, with soaker tub, rain showerhead, tempered glass shower partition, cantilevered sink and sliding doors that conceal the laundry.
It’s another example of the thought Peterson has lavished on this 37-unit, live-work project called Roncesvalles Lofts, set on a somewhat inhospitable site near Howard Park and Roncesvalles Aves.
The lofts, which range from 685 to 1,950 square feet, will all have balconies, terraces or garden patios.
Some will be one storey, with nine-foot ceilings; others will be two storeys.
The project targets people who are downsizing, moving out of houses in the neighbourhood or in other parts of the city, as well as people who are moving up.
The lofts range in price from $230,000 for 615 square feet, to $670,000 for a 1,800-square-foot suite, which will also have a large roof terrace and two balconies.
