Located on Lake Shore Boulevard West near Bathurst Street, the historic Tip Top Tailor building is hard to miss with its huge bright red ‘Tip Top Tailors’ sign perched above the roof.
Originally constructed in 1929 by Bishop & Miller, the Art Deco building was a warehouse and office facility for the Toronto clothing retailer. Then, in 2005, the 11-storey property was converted into 256 tastefully refinished Toronto lofts, aptly named Tip Top Lofts. The new residence features classic hard loft styles on the lower floors, while the new upper floors host modern soft lofts.
Beyond the scope of the building, homeowners here will find themselves immersed in the growing and historically enriched Fort York neighbourhood, a mix of lush outdoor green spaces and well-known cultural attractions such as the Harbourfront Centre, Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, and the Canadian National Exhibition or CNE.

Most Notable Features
Historical charm: Deemed a heritage building in 1972, the Tip Top Lofts building has been a Toronto property since the 1920’s when it was the factory and office of Tip Top Tailors Ltd, Polish immigrant David Dunkelman’s menswear fashion retail company. That’s nearly 100 years of history wrapped up inside one little building on Toronto’s waterfront. So the question is: what will you add to the story?
Hard and soft lofts: When the building was converted into lofts in the early 2000’s, Context Developments was smart-thinking to create both hard and soft lofts. What that means is that Tip Top Lofts offers both the classic, exposed brick and woodbeam ‘hard loft’ style, as well as more modern ‘soft loft’ styles that will feel like a contemporary condo. You get to choose.
Holiday parties: Downtown Toronto condos can sometimes feel cold and impersonal, but Tip Top Lofts tries hard to create a fun and friendly sense of community, with meet your neighbour summer BBQs and annual Holiday parties for Christmas and New Years.
