Imperial Lofts in St. Lawrence Market, Toronto
The Imperial Lofts is a 6-storey hard loft conversion just north of the corner of Sherbourne and Adelaide. Originally the old Imperial Optical Warehouse and Office Building with its adjacent 3-storey art deco factory building, the lofts were converted into 65 suites featuring original brick walls, wooden floors, exposed wooden beams, ducts and pipes. These beautifully converted lofts boast 10 foot ceilings and range in size from one-bedrooms as small as 780 square feet (a generous size really), all the way up to two-storey three-bedroom lofts at over 1600 square feet that have their own terraces. While the only amenities the Imperial Lofts offer are a rooftop terrace and BBQs, they have very low maintenance fees.
Both the 3-storey and 6-storey buildings that comprise the Imperial Lofts are listed as Contributing Properties in the St. Lawrence Heritage Conservation District. The Imperial Lofts are in the heart of the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood, famous for its beautiful old-world architecture and industrious theatre scene, not to mention “one of the best food markets in the world” (according to National Geographic). Surrounded by popular bars, cafes and restaurants, you are only ever minutes away from some of the city’s best dining experiences.
