CHURCH LOFTS – 701 Dovercourt Rd
Our last stop is at the aptly-named Church Lofts. This former Neo-Gothic Methodist Church was built in 1906 before becoming a United Church in 1925. The unique design of the residences within offer cropped sections of the former church. One room will have half an archway, the next half a stained glass window. Throughout is beautiful exposed brick, vaulted ceilings, wooden beams, skylights and more. Each of the 28 contemporary lofts is unique and offers its own slice of history.
Although there aren’t any church conversions up for pre-construction sale today, Wonder Condos, a hard-loft conversion of the once-was Wonder bread factory, will soon be the hottest pre-construction project to launch in years. We’ll have access and all the details when it approaches. Until then you can read all about it here, “Wonder Condos: The Hard-Loft Conversion We’ve Been Waiting For.”
