314 Palmerston’s story is a bit different than the rest of the church conversions and there’s no fancy loft name for this address. The Baptist Church and adjoining school from 1888 was originally acquired by Matthew Kosoy who had planned on converting the unique property into a multitude of condos. It was Joe Brennan, who was hired to restore the exterior, who had encouraged Kosoy to create a handful of high-end townhomes, something unique for high-end buyers. Today, there exists four large suites at 314 Palmerston: two suites that are 5,500 square feet, one that is 8,000 square feet and the largest is 10,000 square feet and is owned by Joe Brennan himself. Knowing they had something special here they allowed the buyers to design the suites themselves. What remains is nothing short of luxury. Joe Brennan’s 3 storey suite has been featured many times in the media for its stunning design and luxurious finishes.
