Welcome to 233 Carlaw Avenue, Loft 307!
Located just north of Queen Street East on Carlaw Avenue, the Garment Factory Lofts are located in the heart of hip Leslieville. Now the destination of choice for the high-styled, but down-to-earth buyer, Leslieville is considered one of the city’s most vibrant 'hoods for design, food and fun. Nearby Queen Street East offers daily shopping, café culture, and purveyors of the funky and fine! Our fav's include Mercury Espresso for our shots of espresso Lady Marmalade for brunch, Queen Margherita Pizza for sharing and the Brick Street Bakery for all manners of sustenance. On the go? Delica Kitchen is a great stop for delicious soups, salads and pret å manger sandwiches and, for those who crave something sweet, there's the always enticing Bobbette and Belle Bakery. Looking for great mid-century modern furnishings to swank out your pad? We love MachineAgeModern, Studio Pazo and Guff Furniture which are all a short stroll from this fab space.
Are you outdoorsy? This Triple AAA locale also benefits from its proximity to a multitude of green spaces and the waterfront. Just a short stroll, bike, or blade can whisk you away to the sanctuary of the Leslie Spit and the recreation of the Beach! Or just head up Broadview to connect with the Riverdale East Park with its two ball diamonds, three multipurpose sports fields, a running track, seven tennis courts, an artificial outdoor ice rink and ball hockey pad, a picnic area and outdoor pool. And don't miss the link to the Don Valley with its technical biking trails.
Completed in November of 2008, the Garment Factory Lofts is an eight-floor live/work industrial conversion designed and converted in partnership by award-winning Core Architects Inc. and family-owned Atria Developments. Boasting 150 loft units, the Garment Factory Lofts marries the authentic warehouse aesthetic with modern architectural detailing. Some units - like this one - are situated in the original factory, and others located in a newly constructed podium tower extension, but all offer an opportunity to display one’s personal style in this one-of-a-kind conversion. With flared concrete columns, soaring ceilings up to nearly 12 feet, and oversized floor-to-ceiling windows, this heart-grabbing conversion has become one of the premier loft addresses in Leslieville.
This condominium, which boasts a sterling reputation for being well-managed, has the benefit of around ten visitor parking spaces, a hobby room, a small gym, and the benefit of late afternoon/evening security on site in the stylish lobby. Predominantly owner-occupied - with enormous pride of ownership and community spirit - this complex is also pet-friendly! Need the occasional car? Autoshare is right at the back of the building with two rental cars! Isn't that brilliant?
Loft 307 is just under 600 square feet of efficiently designed interior space, with a generous 134 square foot covered outdoor terrace with gas barbecue hook-up. Boasting ceiling heights near 12 feet high, and two flared concrete columns, this modular space is a series of articulated living zones ideal for the busy professional. We love the spa washroom with its oversized shower with rainshower head. The sleeping sanctuary is well-proportioned with a double closet, and the entertainment zone features a smart kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including gas cooking!), polished concrete floors, and a floor-to-ceiling bank of sliding glass doors that connect to the north-facing terrace. This is a winner!
Do you crave the combination of luxe condominium living and a location that promotes the best of urban living? This may be the spot for you!
