If you love a walking life as much as I do, then you know how amazing it is to live in the centre of the city. I mean, who wouldn't want to roll out of bed, grab a coffee, and stroll to work on time for your first morning meeting without the least bit of panic? Yup. No stress on traffic jams, streetcar delays, or being over or under dressed in our four season city.
These are merits of a Bright Lights Big City lifestyle. And if you really desire the best of the best, then you already know that St. Lawrence Market is the place to be those looking to embrace the pedestrian lifestyle!
Welcome to 80 Sherbourne Street, Loft 307!
If you’ve been on the lookout in the city centre to see which neighbourhoods offer the best mix of character, urban life, and convenience, you already know one of the very best and most dynamic areas is the original Olde Town of York. Before Toronto became the modern thriving metropolis it is today, it was known as the Town of York, and it is this ten-block area that now forms the historic core of Toronto.
For those in the know, this vintage pocket of character architecturally significant buildings with contemporary mid-rise infill developments provides an engaging street life with the very best of urban amenities. Located on the west side of Sherbourne Street, between Richmond and Adelaide Streets, the Imperial Lofts Condominium is in one of the city’s most convenient urban locations. All your transportation needs are covered, with the 24hour 504 King and 501 Queen streetcars connecting directly to the Yonge and University Subway lines, plus it’s a short stroll south to the Go and Via Rail trains! However, in this location you’re more likely to live your life embracing the neighbourhood by foot, where you’re a short stroll to everyday shopping including the charming St. Lawrence Market with its purveyors of fresh produce and specialty foods, Fahrenheit Coffee (Sameer and his crew really pull a mean shot!), and even a nearby top notch 24hour Metro grocer for those with irregular work hours. And for those with a love of design, you’re smack dab in the centre of oodles of design retailers, art galleries and an outstanding array of entertainment and cafés, including our faves Fusaro's Italian and George Street Diner on Richmond Street and The Beerbistro located on King Street East. Living at the Imperial Lofts means you've got it all at your fingertips!
Situated in two of Toronto's finest heritage buildings, the Imperial Optical Warehouse and Office Building, the Imperial Lofts consists of a 6-storey authentic loft building built in 1905, and a 3-storey office building in the art-deco style dating from the 1930's, both of which have been restored to create 65 condominium lofts. Converted by PlazaCorp in 1997, this intimate complex features loads of character both inside and out.
This character loft is a stylish sun-filled 1 bed 1 bath open concept space of about 778 square feet features expansive west-facing windows, 11' high ceilings and exposed ductwork. The contemporary kitchen, boasting full-size white appliances, has the optimal U-shape configuration favoured by cooks for its efficiency, while the breakfast bar creates an alternate dining space. The exceptional open concept entertainment space boasts wood laminate floors, terrific proportions and scale, and a space plan ideal for entertaining, making it perfect to host family and friends. The carpeted sleeping zone features a wall of closets and conveniently abuts the spacious 4-piece modern bath. Plus, there's a super-convenient ensuite laundry closet - how perfect is that?
And to top it all off, there's a breathtaking bright-lights big city common roof-top terrace with seating areas and bbq's for those starlit summer evenings! This is a dreamy, gallery-like setting for domestic bliss!
