For those who love the idea of loft living, this airy, spacious seventh floor corner concrete 'n cool loft could be your heaven! Well-situated in the epicentre of the Fashion District neighbourhood - just steps from the shops and restaurants of both King and Queen street West - this loft is tucked away on a courtyard, escaping the hustle-and-bustle of downtown streets. Quite simply the best non-penthouse in the building with a view to the South East that's hard to beat, there's little to no likelihood of obstruction to the view going forward despite ongoing intensification in the area. This unique setting provides peace and quiet yet amazing easy access to amenities. And the real estate near King and Spadina will likely continue to appreciate faster than the normal pace in Downtown Toronto.
Welcome to Loft 703, 19 Brant Street!
Located in the central west quadrant of the city centre, 19 Brant is a quick streetcar ride from the financial core or north to the University of Toronto, and a short stroll to hip King and Queen West Neighbourhoods. In close proximity to the Theatre District, TIFF Bell Lightbox, Scotiabank Cinema, Harbourfront, and the Rogers Centre, and around the corner from some of the City’s finest and most interesting restaurants (we recently tried and loved Home of the Brave), this truly is living in the centre of it all. It's got a 99 Walk Score, a transit score of 100, and nearby Adelaide, Richmond and Wellington streets are bicycle-friendly! For car-owners who frequently fly out of Pearson or head out of town on the weekends, you'll love the speedy access to the Gardiner Expressway via the Spadina Avenue on-ramp.
Foodies will love the options right outside their door, ranging from tacos (we recommend Campechano Tequeria) to Bao (try Mean Bao) to high-end steaks (don't miss Jacob's & Co Steakhouse). Grocery shopping and daily errands couldn’t be easier, with Loblaws, a liquor store, even a Winners nearby. Virtually everything you need is just a short stroll away, right down to some choice furniture and design stores (like CB2) near Bathurst and Queen. And don't miss out on the plethora of clubs and pubs; establishments like Horseshoe Tavern and the Cameron House along Queen have been leaders in Toronto’s music scene since the 1970s!
The Quad Lofts on Brant Street are a fashion-forward pair of mid-sized condominium towers, completed by Cresford in 2006. The buildings - 9 storeys at 19 Brant and 11 storeys at 23 Brant - house over 200 suites ranging in size from 530 to 1,600 square feet. Common features accross both buildings include high-ceilings, polished concrete floors, quality appliances, granite counter tops, and balconies with BBQ hook-ups. The buildings are pet-friendly, and share a host of amenities that beckon residents to keep fit, be social, and enjoy the condo community! These include: a beautifully landscaped courtyard, a fitness centre, sauna, an exercise room, a business room, a theatre, two guest suites, a party room and a sports room. We adore how this unique complex marries urban living with green space; an easily accessed outdoor courtyard amplifies the sense of space between one building and the next, while adding a touch of freshness to the existing concrete n' cool aesthetic!
This one-bedroom plus den corner unit with concrete floors and 10-foot ceilings has an efficient layout that smartly delineates living zones while maintaining a lofty, open feel. Directly adjacent to the door is ample floor-to-ceiling storage for all of your seasonal wear! Directly ahead, the loft opens into a sun soaked living space, that's perfect for gathering (and impressing!) friends and family. The formation of the corner kitchen maximizes the entertainment area, while maintaining adequate floor space to maneuver between the appliances. We love the rich wood tones and celadon tile backsplash that complement the black marble countertops perfectly! Sliding transparent doors hide the bedroom and den from view, while still letting in the light. In fact, light spreads through the entire space thanks to two walls of large 'factory-style' windows, which emulate and accentuate that distinct 'loft' vibe, while offering coveted views of some of Toronto’s finest heritage buildings!
Here's a bonus: there's a 2-piece powder room directly off the foyer, which entertainers will appreciate when their guests don't have to travel through the bedroom to use the washroom! Attached to the powder room through sliding doors is a soaker tub, stand-alone shower, and laundry space which lead into the Master bedroom. The bedroom itself is a neat hideaway, whose peace will lull you to sleep!
The large balcony is accessed through sliding doors and has a convenient BBQ hookup for summertime grilling! The space awaits your personal touch of plants or seating; it's the perfect "outdoor room" to enjoy South East views of the cityscape and CN tower! And because this is a corner unit, there is no other balcony beside you, leading to a feeling of privacy and seclusion that is very rare downtown!
Everything in this suite is conveniently organized and tucked away, creating a sleek, airy design that emphasizes the best parts of owning a lofty, urban pad! Check out a flavour video of this sexy downtown retreat:
For the buyer who's seeking a steps-to-the-action loft-living in the heart of the city - in an area which is cementing its claim as a world class destination - this is a fabulous loft with a great layout and generous size (over 1000 sqare feet including the balcony!) in the perfect location. The listing doesn't automatically include a parking space or a locker, but if you must have it we can get it for you!
