Found on Charles Street East just a short walk from Church Street, The Waldorf Astoria Lofts was converted into a residential property in 1990. Prior to the conversion, the buildings were well known since the 1960’s as the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, a fashionable entry into Toronto’s then bohemian Yorkville.
Now the residence stands at 8-storeys of refurbished white concrete and stone and offers 131 Toronto lofts, with mostly one-bedroom suites. The units feature renovated bathrooms and kitchens with tile flooring, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets and electric fireplaces in master bedrooms, and ensuite laundry. Residents will also enjoy the sauna and fitness room, as well as a common rooftop deck. Beyond your front door, you’ll discover the Yonge and Bloor neighbourhood, an eclectic downtown experience that brings together fun nightlife adventures, boutique shopping, arts and culture venues, and Toronto business bustle.
