For those who love to live modern, you’ll always be mise-en-scene in this crisply-styled, indulgently pampered, contemporary urban loft. Located in the central west quadrant of the city centre, southeast of the major intersections of terrific King West and Bathurst Streets, 66 Portland is a quick streetcar ride to the financial core, a short stroll to hip Queen West, and a hop and a sip to the Entertainment District. It’s also just moments to the Gardiner Expressway for those seeking speedy access to the airport or cottage country. In proximity to the theatres, Paramount Cinema, Harbourfront, the Rogers Centre, some of the City’s finest restaurants and clubs (we love Forno Cultura Bakery, Delica Kitchen, Thor Espresso, and Gusto 101), this is truly living in the centre of it all!

Sub-penthouse #701 is one of 85 residences in an intimate boutique concrete and steel loft condominium completed in 2007 by Freed/Lash Developments. This particular space is well-designed and elegantly upgraded, having ample square footage, an intelligent space plan, and a substantial sun-drenched terrace! Positioned on the south-east side of the seventh floor, this split-plan two bedroom space offers the luxe loft buyer beautiful proportions, fluted concrete columns, and expansive floor-to-ceiling glass that captures all-day sun!

This loft encompasses approximately 926 square feet of indoor space plus an additional 605 square feet of outdoor under-the-stars living on a wrap-around corner terrace. The clean-lined, completely custom-built kitchen boasts sparkling stainless steel appliances, a Blanko sink and faucet, gleaming hardware-free cabinetry, and a generous island/breakfast bar. Beyond, in the open concept entertainment space you truly get a sense of the ‘contemporary meets rough’ aesthetic that permeates the loft; new upgraded flooring and fresh white walls compliment the harder, industrial elements including fluted columns, concrete ceilings, and exposed ductwork. Two walls of windows offer breathtaking panoramic city views and allow sunlight to bathe the space. It feels like a glass house in the sky!

The Master sleeping sanctuary – perfect for lazy Sundays in bed – is bright and spacious, connecting to an open walk-in closet and sparkling spa-like ensuite bath. The second bedroom, though more modest in size, is mere feet from the loft’s second bath and boasts a generous double closet and sliding patio doors that open on to the expansive terrace.

Ideal for the urban professional, this coveted complex and high-style loft isn’t the kind of offering that comes to market regularly! And, given it includes a locker and underground parking space, in one of our city’s most dynamic and vital neighbourhoods, this competitively-priced slice of luxury Toronto real estate certainly won’t last long!
