History

The Distillery District, named after the Gooderham and Worts Distillery that was built on the site in 1859 is the largest and best-preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America. In 1832, James Worts and William Gooderham founded their company and it soon grew to be widely known as the largest distillery in the world. In 1859 the present day buildings were built and they still survive, as they were, today.

Housing and Accommodation

The first residential component was added to the Distillery District in 2008 when the Pure Spirit Condos and Lofts condominium on Mill Street was built, and more have been added to the area since, which has created a new vibrancy to this neighbourhood. Condominium units range in size from approximately 500 sq. ft. to 1,500 sq. ft., and the Gooderham condo building has some larger units with approximately 2,000 sq. ft. Contemporary suite layouts feature 9 foot ceilings, large windows and wrap-around balconies. Amenities in these condominiums generally include state-of-the-art fitness facilities, sauna and media rooms, as well as outdoor terraces with swimming pools, hot tubs and BBQ-lounge areas.
