There aren't a lot of authentic Toronto Lofts for sale. But the Broadview Lofts are what we call a 'true loft' conversion. It was originally a warehouse for the Rexall Drug store chain at the turn of the century. When Sorbara did the loft conversion, the first 5 floors already had the makings of beautiful loft space: massive beams that provided long, clear-span views, 10 to 20 foot ceilings, and great window-to-floor-space ratio. Then they added 2 more floors, (set back from the perimeter to reduce mass) built with extensive use of glass.
The Broadview Lofts could be my favourite Leslieville Loft so far. I think this building has the perfect mix of modern design and raw, historic vibe. I like how SDG preserved the building's charm and industrial flavour, by salvaging and restoring several of the buildings original fixtures - even hardware, and redistributing them throughout the project. The tongue and grooved wood ceilings are considered a bonus feature, but (like the concrete floors) they can collect dust, so make sure you keep them well-sealed.
If you're on the top 2 floors you have a completely different home. These are 'soft lofts', brand new, with contemporary design and finishes.
For starters, you can walk Downtown in 30 minutes or less but you still get the feeling of the residential neighbourhood. Though you're closer to Eastern than Queen, you're surrounded by three great neighbourhoods: Broadview / Riverside, Leslieville , and The Studio District. It's less than 5 minutes walk to galleries, great restaurants and funky furniture stores. There's 24 hour TTC and you're only a couple of minutes drive to the DVP or Gardiner Expressway. All the Leslieville Lofts are an easy commute to anywhere in the GTA and Broadview Lofts is no exception.
