The wow factor of this downtown Toronto condo is undeniable. In the Graphic Arts Building you can live and work in a suite that blends classic architectural details with the flexibility of loft style living, right in the downtown Core.
Built in 1913, this historic five-storey limestone building has a facade featuring Ionic columns and cornice work. For years it was the headquarters of Saturday Night Magazine, an esteemed publication that featured the writing of many of Canada's most acclaimed writers including Stephen Leacock, John McCrae, Robertson Davies and Margaret Atwood. Artists C.W. Jefferys, Tom Thomson and other members of the Group of Seven also worked at Saturday Night. So artsy cachet? Check.
There are 65 soft lofts in this contemporary reimagining of a slice of Toronto's artistic heritage. The impressive entrance still boasts the original Saturday Night signage and, while there are not many amenities, residents enjoy a great rooftop terrace and a fantastic location. In addition to it's appeal as a live/work space, the combination of historic character and urban convenience makes the Graphic Arts Building a great choice as a pied-à-terre in the city for business types, or a good investment for buyers looking to grow their real estate portfolio.
It's all nearby!
Some good places for a nice meal are Mercatto, Blowfish on Bay, Mio, Vertical and the classic Hy's Steakhouse. You can grab a more casual bite at Shopsy's or Subway and if you love coffee, you're not too far from Second Cup, Starbucks or Tim Hortons.
If you'd rather eat in, you can walk to Longo's Brookfield Place in under ten minutes for groceries.
If you're in the mood for some entertainment, Toronto Eaton Centre, Rainbow Cinema Market Square and World Theatres are some of your nearby choices to catch a film. You are also very close to the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts and the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres.
Love being outside? Look no further than Cloud Gardens, just around the corner, or go ice-skating at Nathan Phillips Square in the winter. For those days you just want to be indoors, look no further than Design Exchange, Hockey Hall of Fame, and the Eaton Centre to keep you occupied for hours.
The Graphic Arts Building condos were designed with the true urbanite in mind and do not offer parking. But with so much within walking distance and transit readily available, you are not at a disadvantage if you opt not to have a car. The PATH is literally next-door and TTC Queen Street and Osgoode Stations are both a 5-minute walk away. In 10 minutes, you can walk or take the bus, to Union Station with connections to VIA Rail, GO trains and the UP Express to Pearson International Airport.
Diehard drivers need not fear, there are a number of short and long term parking lots in The Core and the closest highway is the Gardiner Expressway via the Yonge Street onramp about a 5-minute drive from home.
