The Glebe Lofts — Pape church conversion a part of history
Completed in 2004, The Glebe is a fabulous loft conversion of the architecturally magnificent Riverdale Presbyterian Church, located at 660 Pape Avenue, in prime Riverdale and just steps from the subway.
Very rarely does an opportunity come along to live in history. Designed by renowned period architect J. Wilson Gray, originally constructed for the trustees of the Riverdale Presbyterian Church, this imposing architectural building is now retrofitted, entirely within the existing envelope, into only 32 astonishing multi-level loft residences.
Erected in 1920 as an extension to the original 1912 Riverdale Presbyterian Church, this loft conversion pays homage to the soaring height of the original sanctuary in all of its two storey primary living spaces, featuring large open plans, expansive interconnected to flow with the building space.
Each loft is custom designed for the purchaser, to optimize the dramatic effects of light and spatial volume: incorporates solid masonry demising walls, thermopane windows, superior thermal and acoustical insulation, individual high efficiency heating systems, all new electrical and mechanical systems, and a host of luxury features.
Located at 660 Pape Avenue, steps from the subway and the vibrant cosmopolitan shops, restaurants and coffeehouses of the Danforth, close to the downtown and the cultural heart of the City, The Glebe offers a unique lifestyle for character, location, design features and value anywhere in Toronto.
