201 Carlaw Ave in South Riverdale | Leslieville, East End, Toronto, M4M2S3
Before its conversion to lofts, this Leslieville landmark lay at the heart of Toronto’s industrial sector. Originally built to house printing presses, this warehouse was once a vital part of Toronto’s industry. Converted to lofts in 2014, this Toronto loft seamlessly blends the original 3-storey structure with a striking glass tower and stacked townhouses along the east side.
Indeed, the original 1913 building remains an integral part of the condominium, with an eight-story tower that rises above the historical podium. Designed with an eye to maintaining the original features, the developers incorporated the original industrial skylights into these two-storey units. Another painstaking restoration involved the façade as well as the classic features of the main entrance portico, which reveals a grand wooden staircase and vaulted ceilings.
