Toronto Soft Lofts & New Lofts

If any of these soft lofts inter­est you, please call Lau­rin at 416−388−1960

By no means are there lofts cur­rently for sale in all of these build­ings. In fact most of them are not cur­rently avail­able. This list of Toronto lofts is meant to inform and illus­trate only, to show the wide vari­ety of soft loft build­ings in Toronto. If you know of any that are not listed here, please email us and we would be more than happy to add your contribution.

There is a large seg­ment of the build­ing indus­try today devoted to build­ing new lofts, “soft” lofts. There is noth­ing wrong with this at all, as peo­ple know what they are get­ting into from the begin­ning. When you go to a nou­veau loft build­ing, you are expect­ing to see liv­ing space on the lower level with sleep­ing space above, open to the lower. Usu­ally with a large wall of windows.

Some soft loft devel­op­ers are now build­ing units that are sin­gle level, with high-ish con­crete ceil­ings and exposed duct­work. Again, as long as you know the build­ing you are going to is new con­struc­tion and not con­verted, then there should be no surprises.

This might be the time to have a small dis­cus­sion about the word “loft” itself. I know a lot of die-hards don’t even want the word loft used in con­nec­tion with the soft vari­ety, which is their own pre­rog­a­tive. But, if we look at the two most com­mon uses of the word, we can see that both are right, in their own way.

The purist says that loft only means a raw and open space in a con­verted indus­trial type build­ing. This is what it has come to mean more and more, thanks mostly to movies and tele­vi­sion. But a loft can also be an upper level, one that is open to below. In my father’s house, the mas­ter bed­room over­looks the liv­ing room – and is thus a loft. My uncle’s cot­tage has a bed­room in the upper level that over­looks the main room, again a loft.

So either way we use the word, we are cor­rect in it’s usage. We just need the qual­i­fier in front, be it hard or soft. In this way can we dif­fer­en­ti­ate what sort of dwelling we are speak­ing about.

Newly con­structed lofts, or soft lofts (oth­er­wise known as con­dos with high ceil­ings), are exam­ples of condo devel­op­ers try­ing to cash in on the pop­u­lar­ity of lofts. Most soft lofts have very lit­tle char­ac­ter and, in most cases, the ceil­ings aren’t even all that high. The qual­ity of con­struc­tion can be dis­ap­point­ing and quite often the loca­tion is really the only sell­ing point, since vin­tage lofts are usu­ally a lit­tle off the beaten track, not in the best neighbourhoods.

How­ever, there are a few out­stand­ing newer build­ings in Toronto, with some loft-style fea­tures. To find out more, look at the list of lofts below.

Call Lau­rin at 416−388−1960 or or email him today if you are inter­ested in any of these Toronto soft lofts! Please be sure to let us know if you think a loft is missing.

Fashion District Lofts - 10 Morrison Street Fash­ion Dis­trict Lofts – 10 Mor­ri­son Street
When Freed Devel­op­ments and Lash Devel­op­ment Corp. first acquired the cor­ner lot at 455 Ade­laide Street West, they didn’t quite know what to do with it. Then a team from Core Archi­tects Inc. came up with a unique design: an L-shaped build­ing stretch­ing towards Mor­ri­son Street and con­tain­ing a vari­ety of inno­v­a­tive spaces, includ­ing town­houses on the ground level and lofts above. Though launched as the Fash­ion Dis­trict Lofts at 455 Ade­laide Street West, that name has changed and the soft loft build­ing has an address of 10 Mor­ri­son Street. It is the project we all knew as 455 Ade­laide West, but the name is no longer the same.

Lofts 399 - 399 Adelaide Street West Lofts 399 – 399 Ade­laide Street West
The orig­i­nal Mode Lofts is gone and in its place is now Lofts 399. Exca­va­tions began in 2008, so some­thing might actu­ally come to fruition next to the Quad Lofts. Cres­ford can­celed this project after sell­ing some of the units, due to a dis­pute with the city over den­sity that appar­ently could not be resolved. The project was res­ur­rected as Lofts 399 and finally com­pleted in 2013. Units are now reselling and the fin­ished build­ing is inter­est­ing, with a dif­fer­ent sort of archi­tec­ture where it meets the street.

Space Lofts - 255 Richmond Street East Space Lofts – 255 Rich­mond Street East
The name of this build­ing is a bit mis­lead­ing, since loft sizes start here from as lit­tle as 350 square feet and, as far as I know, don’t exceed 1,000 square feet. There are some really nice lofts in the build­ing though, and the loca­tion is great, within walk­ing dis­tance to the St. Lawrence Mar­ket. In the two-storey lofts the liv­ing area is quite impres­sive with the floor-to-ceiling win­dows through its 18-feet height. Sin­gle storey units with their 9-feet height can hardly be called lofts. Located on the lower east side of down­town (Rich­mond and Jarvis), the own­ers at Space have con­ve­nient access to King Street East, the Dis­tillery Dis­trict, St. Lawrence Mar­ket, and the Finan­cial Dis­trict from their res­i­dence. This soft loft build­ing was com­pleted in 2004 with mostly 2 storey lofts with the bed­room on the upper level and huge floor to ceil­ing win­dows span­ning 18 feet.

For many Cana­di­ans, mov­ing to an urban apart­ment is about tap­ping into the excite­ment and cul­tural oppor­tu­ni­ties of the big city and can also mean a shorter com­mute to work. But find­ing a place in the city can mean sac­ri­fic­ing the larger liv­ing spaces found in the sub­urbs or coun­try. Increas­ingly, urban dwellers are find­ing that loft apart­ments offer the loca­tion and oppor­tu­ni­ties of city life with far more space than aver­age con­dos or apart­ment homes. What’s the idea behind lofts, and why are they so popular?

One def­i­n­i­tion for a loft found on the web is “An appeal against con­ven­tion– con­ven­tion in think­ing, con­ven­tion in build­ing and con­ven­tion in liv­ing. They are a cel­e­bra­tion of open con­cept liv­ing and uncon­ven­tional spaces brought about by the con­sid­ered appli­ca­tion of imag­i­na­tion and a rejec­tion of mass-market housing.”

By the 1980s the con­cept was spread­ing first across the United States and then to Europe and Asia. As the trend grew it caught the atten­tion of devel­op­ers iden­ti­fy­ing a new mar­ket. Devel­op­ers being devel­op­ers did not let a lack of own­ing an exist­ing ware­house or fac­tory build­ing to con­vert stop them from mov­ing into the new mar­ket. Thus the new word “loft” began to be applied to units in ground up new con­struc­tion. Need­less to say the term grew fuzzy.

By now the term loft has matured. Lofts built new from the ground up are typ­i­cally referred to as soft lofts or new lofts or loft-inspired or mez­za­nine suites. Whether cre­ated out of an exist­ing build­ing or built ground up new, all lofts have cer­tain com­mon ele­ments or they are not lofts.

Lofts are part of the Post­mod­ernism move­ment in archi­tec­ture. Post­mod­ernism is a counter– reac­tion to the strict and almost uni­ver­sal mod­ernism of the mid-20th Cen­tury. It embraces ele­ments from his­tor­i­cal build­ing styles incor­po­rat­ing them with­out a rigid adher­ence to one style. It also does not as pol­icy try to hide the struc­tural or mechan­i­cal ele­ments of a build­ing but often uses these in the design.

What is a “soft” loft?

In recent years devel­op­ers have built new build­ings with some of the char­ac­ter­is­tics of a hard loft such as high ceil­ings, big win­dows and open floor plans. These lofts typ­i­cally have a softer edge… no exposed ducts and plumb­ing, car­pet in some areas and upscale kitchens and baths. Soft lofts have more in com­mon with tra­di­tional con­do­mini­ums than a true hard loft.
