Found on Brunswick Avenue only a short walk north of Bloor Street, The Loretto offers prestigious loft style living in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood.
The property was previously the home of the Loretto Abbey Day School, a five-storey heritage building dating to 1914, until it was converted into condos in 2007. The Loretto building now hosts 50 loft-style Annex condos for sale and for rent, with an intimate green courtyard and amenities pavilion constructed over the underground parking garage. The units range from one-bedroom apartments to full three-bedroom plus den townhouses, all of which feature ten-foot ceilings, engineered hardwood flooring, modern stainless steel appliances, and private balconies or terraces. The complex also enjoys some basic amenities such as a fitness facility and party and meeting rooms.
Just down the street, residents will discover the Annex neighbourhood, a charming community stretching from Queen’s Park to Christie Street along Bloor. The street is lined with boutique shops, quaint cafes, cozy restaurants, and trendy bars and venues, not to mention home to University of Toronto’s St. George campus, the Royal Ontario Museum, and Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.
Most Notable Features
Select townhomes: Unlike most other downtown Toronto condos, The Loretto offers 13 townhomes located around the rear of the complex. These units are styled similarly to the lofts, but offer more space, privacy, and the sense of living in a house.
A cultural vibe: If you investigate Toronto’s cultural history, you will discover that Brunswick Avenue plays a popular role as the setting for many Toronto authors. As one of Katherine Govier’s short story collections begins, “Everyone lives on Brunswick Avenue sooner or later.” So if you like the idea of joining a culturally literate community, a home at The Loretto is the right first step.
Lofty amenities: Somewhat uncommon for Toronto lofts, The Loretto has an array of building amenities to add a degree of physical and social activity to your life at home. Enjoy a daily workout in the fitness facility, host a party in the multi-purpose room, and easily invite guests to visit utilizing the building’s visitor parking service.
With an historical loft at 385 Brunswick Avenue, you will get to explore a popular neighbourhood known as the Annex. It’s a lively and youthful urban centre that combines cultural attractions like the ROM, The Royal Conservatory of Music, Hot Docs Cinema, and Lee’s Palace with the campus vibe of University of Toronto, plus a quaint residential feel and an endless array of quaint cafes, cozy restaurants, and fun bars. With TTC routes along Bloor Street and Spadina Avenue, you are easily connected to the rest of the city, whether for Yorkville’s boutique shopping, Bay Street’s Financial District, or King Street’s Fashion and Entertainment Districts. A few local hot spots to explore include Playa Cabana for delicious Mexican-Korean fusion, Smoke’s Poutinerie for a taste of Montreal, and Green Beanery for a mid-day coffee in a bright brickwork roastery.
Need groceries and other household items? Stop by Metro at Bloor and Robert Street, Whole Foods Market on Avenue Road, and Bulk Barn at Bloor and Borden. There are also a lot of smaller fruit and vegetable markets.
For some local greenery, The Loretto is a pleasant walk away from the landscaped grounds of University of Toronto’s St. George campus, as well as Queen's Park to the east and Christie Pitts Park to the west.
The Annex neighbourhood has a 100 Walk Score, with convenient bicycle-lanes on Wellesley Street and College Street. If you want to travel fast, there are three main subway stations along Bloor Street for smooth sailing east and west, plus connection to the Yonge line at St. George Station. For car-owners, the area is navigable along Bloor Street and Spadina Avenue giving you access to the Gardiner Expressway to the south, Highway 401 to the north, and the Don Valley Parkway to the east.
