Originally completed in the 1920’s, and converted into lofts in 2006 – the Tip Top Tailors factory is now home to one of the most desired hard lofts in the City… and easily one of my most favorite condos to sell in!
The building was designated as a Toronto Heritage site in the 1970’s and thanks to this many of the buildings original features are still in tact. It’s the art deco design that gives the lofts such a strong first impression and initially won me over! The stark white columns which flank the building on either side give the loft such a bold and timeless look. The cherry on this lofts cake is it’s stunning fountain positioned square in the centre of the entrance. A quick walk up the main staircase and you’ve officially arrived at 637 Lake Shore Blvd.
If your jaw hasn’t dropped yet – hang on, because The Great Gatsby looking lobby is sure to wow your socks off! All guests must sign in with the concierge… and these guys don’t play around. All realtors MUST show proof of insurance and a business card, something only a handful of condos make mandatory. If you don’t have business being in the building, good luck getting past the lobby!
The majority of the buildings amenities can be found just behind the lobby! There’s a central court that acts as an impromptu art gallery/meeting spot for the residences. From here, access to the gym, yoga room, hot tub and party room can be had!
Located at the foot of Lake Ontario, you’re only minutes to the downtown core. Wind down at Coronation Park next door, or watch the sailboats dock at the Marina behind the building. The Martin Goodman trail takes you along the waterfront with it’s dedicated bikes lanes. Porter Airport is a only a few blocks away and perfect for a weekend getaway!
Described by many as one of the most sought after loft in the City, this unit in particular has many unique features that only it can boast! Facing east, the large industrial windows give you the perfect vantage point of the CN Tower – in-fact, it was this view that made my seller purchase the loft in the first place!
The large 13.2 foot ceilings make this one bedroom unit feel much more spacious than others of similar size! The exposed brick wall, ceilings and duct work add to the hard loft feel of the suite.
The main space in the loft is divided into kitchen, dining and living! The kitchen features modern stainless steel appliances and a custom glass bar that helps define the area and add to the efficiently of the space. The living space is full of natural light, and is boarded by the exposed brick wall!
The bedroom can easily fit a large bed with ample room for end tables and a dresser. Ample storage can be had above the bed or in the large closet… oh and did I mention waking up to a clear view of the CN Tower every morning?
In the large washroom is where you’ll find the washer and dryer tucked neatly away!
A locker isn’t needed with all the extra storage spots throughout the loft but 1 parking spot is included – which is usually hard to find with one bedroom units! Maintenance fee’s are $347 a month and the property taxes have been assessed at $1925 for the year. My seller is pretty flexible on closing and hoping to find someone who’s enjoyed the loft as much as he has!
