1 Columbus Lofts in Roncesvalles, Toronto
This one’s for the baseball fans. One Columbus Lofts occupies the former Rawlings baseball glove factory. This red brick 4-storey former factory has only ten lofts inside. With only ten units there are still a variety among them: one, two, or three bedroom layouts starting at 1,300 square feet. Lofts here feature the original wooden beams, exposed brick, large warehouse windows, ten foot exposed wood ceilings with duct work, and polished concrete or hardwood floors. Amidst the industrial shell are modern kitchens and spa-inspired bathrooms, making a perfect balance of old and new.
While there aren’t any amenities at One Columbus, its location makes up for it in strides. Situated just south of Dundas Street West in Roncesvalles, you’re walking distance to many of the neighbourhood’s best restaurants, local breweries, and boutique shops. Sorauren Avenue Park is in your backyard, you’re a ten minute walk to Loblaw’s and only a 12 minute walk to Dundas West Station. Opt for the streetcar instead of the subway as you have access to three major routes: 506 Carlton, 505 Dundas and 504 King, all of which take you into the downtown core.
