The space is phenomenal, with high wood beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls and it’s wrapped in enormous windows.

Set on a gracious tree-lined boulevard anchored by two elegant Squares, this intimate former belt factory was originally offered as a custom-build conversion fifteen years ago. In fact, I was part of the original development team! Called The Monarch Building on Wellington Street West, this collection of 34 one-of-a-kind extraordinary live/work lofts offers a unique group of custom lofts, each having their own unique personality, configuration and level of custom ﬁnishes.
Located in the central west quadrant of the city centre, just south of King Street West and Spadina Avenue, 436 Wellington Street West is a quick streetcar ride to the financial core or University of Toronto, a short stroll to hip King and Queen West, 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 (and next door to the well-loved Le Select Bistro), this truly is living in the centre of it all. With virtually everything only moments away, this calibre former factory is one of the most centrally located lofts in the City!
