According to 'those in the know', the items many people list as domestic wishes are, by virtue of their fantastical uniqueness, rare. Throw in the extra condition - that they must all be contained under one roof in a stellar location like The Fashion District, and words like ‘scarce’ and phrases like ‘in your dreams’ may start to get thrown around.
No need to wake up, or listen to those naysayers. There is indeed an intersection between dreams and discriminating taste - and it is made of concrete and glass!
Welcome to 388 Richmond Street West, Loft 923!
Located in the central west quadrant of the city centre on the north west corner of Richmond Street West and Spadina Avenue, 388 Richmond Street West is a quick streetcar ride to the financial core or University of Toronto, a short stroll to hip King and Queen West for shopping or delectable dining, and moments to the Gardiner Expressway, providing speedy access to the airport or cottage country. In proximity to the Theatre District, Scotiabank Cinema, Harbourfront, and the Rogers Centre, and around the corner from some of the City's finest restaurants, this is literally living in the centre of it all.
For those who crave a modern loft in the heart of the city, nothing beats living in District Lofts on Richmond Street West. Completed in 2001 by Context Developments and designed by Architects Alliance, this 14 storey high 148 unit U-shaped twin-tower condominium won numerous awards for its cutting edge styling and urban design. Arranged as two narrow slabs perched atop a base that features retail at grade plus two levels of parking, followed by single level lofts and the exercise and party room amenity spaces, the remaining tower lofts are all two-storey through units with corridors on every second level facing into the courtyard. Featuring rows of cantilevered balconies on both the north and south side, monopitch roofs sloping toward the interior courtyard, and four exterior bridges linking the two slabs as part of the fire exiting system, District Lofts represents a distilled essence in contemporary living.
Generously sized at nearly 900 square feet, this sun-filled, north-facing 2-bedroom 2-level loft represents the best of modern living. Upon entering, you're immediately struck by the high ceilings and open concept floor plan. To your right, the kitchen offers plenty of prep space that will suit any chef, not to mention granite counters and a breakfast bar. Following the reddish-dark hardwood floors into the living space, you pass a well-positioned work area tucked beneath the metal and glass staircase. The living space - boasting floor-to-ceiling windows - opens on to a sunny balcony that offers an unobstructed north view! Upstairs, you'll find two bright, well-proportioned bedrooms, plushly carpeted, and a dreamy modern spa bath (with ensuite laundry!). Throw in a parking spot, essential amenities (concierge, gym, rec room), and reasonable maintenance fees, and this is truly a unique urban space not to be missed!
The District Loft building at 388 Richmond Street West is located in the heart of downtown's Fashion District, attracting the young professional who works hard, plays hard and enjoys the night life of this lively neighbourhood. Do you feel the pull?
