Robert Watson Lofts is the end product of an amalgamation of two buildings. One is an all brick, century-old structure previously used as a candy factory warehouse and recently converted to loft condominiums, the other a modern concrete building. Located at 363 and 369 Sorauren Avenue in Toronto's Roncesvalles, the building is simply a dream for loft living enthusiasts.
The structure houses 153 units. These range from 550 square-foot studios to over 1,500 square-foot two bedroom lofts. There are one and two-level units featuring exposed brick walls, 12-foot ceilings, absolutely gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the living space with light, exposed wood beams, wall-to-wall closet room, polished concrete floors, stainless steel appliances, kitchen islands, and granite counters, all the classic characteristics of true hard lofts. Some of the units include private terraces that can be used for barbecuing – a novelty in the world of condos.
The complex is situated in the heart of Roncesvalles Village in the central west end of the city, a charming and vibrant commercial neighborhood that boasts tree-lined streets, transportation routes, trendy restaurants, authentic Polish butchers, delis, bakeries, coffee houses, specialty shops, and exceptional schools. The area is also within walking distance of Western Beaches, and is surrounded by beautiful parks, such as High Park, for open-air activity and leash-free dog walking.
The building is equipped with a list of amenities such as:
- Fitness center
- Secured parking
- Guest parking
- Multipurpose meeting lounge
- Pre-wiring for telephone and cable services
- Designer lobby corridors
- Terraces, balconies and patios
- Private storage lockers
In Toronto, there is a staggering demand for loft condos. Lofts don't stay on the market for longer than a few days. And for good reason; the unique architectural character of lofts make them extremely attractive to a large portion of the population. On the other side of the equation, however, supply is very limited. Only a very small percentage of the condo inventory in Toronto is made up of lofts. This virtually guarantees that the price of true lofts will only continue to climb for many years to come, making Robert Watson Lofts a smart investment as well as sensational living.
