While it’s not winning any creativity points for the name, The Church Lofts wins all the points for an authentic loft conversion in an excellent urban neighbourhood.
Originally built in 1906, this neo-gothic church turned urban residence is a rare treasure within the scene of Toronto condos. Transformed into 28 unique, single and multi-leveled Toronto lofts, these are authentic conversions that feature restored stained glass windows, original brick and steel trusses, as well as cornice and vaulted ceilings. With suites ranging in size and layout from one to two-bedrooms and amenities such as a communal multi-purpose room and a parking garage, Church Lofts is the perfect home for the discerning loft-lover.
Just up the street, residents can explore the many shops, hip bars, and delicious restaurants of Bloorcourt Village, with the richness of Little Italy just a short trip south on College Street.
