Spanning an entire block along King Street West and Douro Street, Electra Lofts is a mid-rise, 6-storey soft loft development known for being one of the original soft loft buildings on the strip. The building offers over 250, two-storey Toronto lofts in conjunction with a collection of townhomes.
Units here are all 2-story, offer soaring, exposed-concrete ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in tons of natural light. Ranging in size from one to two bedrooms plus dens, these lofts are perfect for young, creative professionals looking to live and work in an exciting and artistic area.
The Electra Lofts are steps to both Toronto’s Fashion and Entertainment Districts and Liberty Village and only a short trip to the Rogers Centre, the CN Tower and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, as well as all the shops, restaurants, bars and clubs of the King West neighbourhood.
Most Notable Features
Two-storey lofts: Suites at the Electra Lofts are two-storeys giving the bedrooms more privacy and creating really lofty ceilings from the main floor. If you’re inspired by the idea of living in a classic, loft-style condo with 17-foot ceilings, 16-foot windows with brilliant natural light, exposed concrete and/or brick accents, hardwood floors and private balconies, then the Electra Lofts could be just the place for you.
Visitor parking: While Electra Lofts’ amenities list is modest compared to other downtown Toronto condos, it’s designed for the active live-work lifestyle of professional urbanites, including visitor parking. An often-overlooked amenity, visitor parking will make family and friend visits easy, safe and more frequent.
Ground-floor convenience: A nice perk of Electra Lofts is the ground-floor commercial space. The shops include Kings Market grocery and convenience store, Green Cleaners dry-cleaning, and a Subway Restaurant for a quick bite.
Living at 1029 King Street West you will always have something to do on any given night. The building is a nice walk or TTC hop from the Rogers Centre, where you can enjoy watching your favourite baseball player hit a home run, or you could explore the deep-sea thrills of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. Not to mention boutique shopping and restaurants along King West’s Fashion and Entertainment Districts, Queen Street music and shows, outdoor activities along Toronto’s waterfront, and the up-and-coming boutique design hubs of Liberty Village.
Some local hot spots to check out include The County General on Queen Street for homestyle food and handcrafted cocktails, Sushi 930 on King Street for large takeaway platters, and Mildred’s Temple Kitchen on Hanna Avenue for weekend brunch.

For a slice of greener scenery, Electra Lofts is just down the street from the petite but nicely landscaped Massey Harris Park, as well as very close to both Trinity Bellwoods Park and the trails of Garrison Common.
