Authentic Toronto Lofts Are Rare
Did you know that less than 1,500 converted industrial lofts exist in Toronto versus over 100,000 regular condos? Less than 2% of the condo supply are real lofts, which is part of the reason they are hard to find and tend to be premiumly priced when you can find them.
The most difficult thing to find in the Toronto real estate market is an authentic loft. Existing lofts in the Candy Factory Lofts, Liberty Lofts, Merchandise Building Original Lofts, and other real loft buildings sell in days, when they are available – and usually at or above asking price with multiple offers.
It’s the law of supply and demand. Due to the lack of warehouses and industrial properties available for conversion, true lofts in Toronto seem assured to substantially increase in value.
The Robert Watson Lofts are a great alternative near Roncesvalles Village. Converted from the Robert Watson confectionary factory, they are fine examples of what real lofts should be. There are a few units left for sale by the builder, as well as resales coming up as original owners decide to sell.
Why are the Robert Watson Lofts so popular?
The vintage building fronting on Sorauren Avenue is the century-old Robert Watson Candy Factory warehouse that has been restored and converted into lofts. It is one of the few authentic loft conversions in the city.
With exposed century-old brick, wood ceilings and columns, and 10 to 16 foot ceilings, the project stands out as one of Toronto’s finest authentic loft conversions ever. It is loaded with spectacular raw finishes.
The new soft loft building behind is a six-storey loft building with high ceilings, polished concrete floors, exposed concrete columns, and expansive glass window walls with spectacular views.
Features of both buildings include a landscaped courtyard, creative amenities, storage spaces, and parking facilities.
