Welcome to 700 King Street West, Loft 408.

For those who love to live modern, surrounded by city life, you’ll feel right at home in this crisply-styled, indulgently pampered, contemporary urban loft. Located in the central west quadrant of the city centre, at the major intersections of buzzing King West and Bathurst Streets, Westside Lofts is a quick streetcar ride to the financial core, a short stroll to hip Queen West, and a hop and a skip 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, Thor Espresso, and Gusto 101), this is truly living in the centre of it all!

Westside Lofts is a 14-storey converted office building with a unique clock-tower façade. The building offers 200 units in the King West neighbourhood, ranging in size from one-bedroom to two-bedroom plus den, and a few three-bedroom units. Suites feature 11-foot ceilings, wide hallways, and large windows. Converted to a residence from an office building, Westside Lofts has succeeded in blending the old with the new. With a retro-looking exterior, the building’s interior is fully updated. Some of the retro-charm can still be found in the games room where a baby grand piano might remind you of days gone by. Notable for downtown traveler, Westside Lofts enjoys instant access to TTC routes along King Street and Bathurst Street. No matter where you’re heading, these two routes can get you there. You will also find safe bike lanes on Adelaide and Richmond Streets.

Perched on the fourth floor, Loft 408 is inviting and bright, offering soaring ceilings and north-facing windows that envelop you in warm natural light. This almost 850-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath residence features a well-proportioned sense of space. Clean lines and quiet elegance characterize this loft, which features blond wood floors and crisp contemporary details.

As you cross the threshold, you’re met with a defined foyer that features a double closet with enough space for all your outdoor fashion and foot ware, a second bedroom, and an abutting washroom. Stepping further into the space, a gallery hall leads past a washroom and Master bedroom with chic barn-style sliding doors. Beyond is the open concept entertainment space which unfolds into a series of articulated living zones, lit by a bright bank of windows that provides the lucky owner with a serene but stunning north-west view of the central west downtown core. The super-functional kitchen with tons of storage, stainless steel appliances, and convenient breakfast bar is an ideal space to laugh or pontificate with family and friends.

The Master sleeping zone features a large double closet, spa-like ensuite bath, and French doors that welcome in sunlight from the bright Entertainment space – how perfect is that? The second bedroom, though more modest in size, is mere feet from the loft’s second bath and boasts a generous closet and sliding barn doors that also open on to the living space. And to top it all off, there’s a breathtaking ‘bright-lights-big-city’ common roof-top terrace with seating areas and bbq’s to enhance your enjoyment of starlit evenings!

Ideal for the urban professional, this coveted high-style loft isn’t the kind of offering that comes to market regularly! 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 trendy Toronto real estate certainly won’t last long!
