The Ultimate Hard Loft In Corktownoffered at $925,000
Some condominium communities have pretty fantastic websites, which is exactly the case with the Lofts at 90 Sumach.
As their site says “Erected in 1956 as a warehouse, 90 Sumach became the design centre for the beginning of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s television era. For decades the CBC’s archives, studios, rehearsal spaces and workshops thrived here. Respected artists such as Glenn Gould, Jim Henson and Lorne Michaels once worked within these walls. Though 90 Sumach was converted to live/work lofts in the late 1990’s, it is still home to a diverse range of artists, designers and other creative professionals.”
Once called the “Brewery Lofts” by the original developer after the surrounding Dominion building complex, this former CBC warehouse is located in the heart of Corktown, one of the city’s rising stars of up-and-coming neighbourhoods. Situated in proximity to the revamped River City, the redeveloping West Don Lands, the magical historic Distillery District, and revitalizing Regent Park, it’s just a short stroll to Leslieville, or the St. Lawrence Market, not to forget it’s just a quick streetcar ride to the financial district and subway lines. And for those with a car, it’s zoom zoom easy to get on the Don Valley Parkway or Gardiner Expressway! Without question, this formerly fringe locale will soon be in the centre-of-it-all!
The Sorbara Group converted the historic building into 100 residential lofts in 1998 and, while no longer a brewery or props warehouse, Sorbara took great pains to maintain the hard-loft concept that is coveted within the city. The building has attracted many creative owners who, not afraid to take on a project within an up and coming neighbourhood, have made some incredible improvements within their lofts. While many new developments have been completed within recent years, the Brewery Lofts stand as one of the only original hard loft conversions in the area. The building amenities include a rooftop garden, gym, media room, party room and visitor parking.
Boasting 14 foot ceilings, impressive concrete fluted pillars, polished concrete floors, and exposed ductwork, this spectacular open concept corner loft of around 1600 square feet of living space has a sun-drenched south-west exposure; we hope you like breath-taking views of the entire skyline, because these windows are spectacular! This loft – one of only two like it in the building – is well-appointed with a modern contemporary kitchen (gas cooking!) with visually arresting aqua-blue cabinets, breakfast bar and granite counters, an open airy entertainment space with a gas fireplace and balcony perch, a den and a snazzy mezzanine master bedroom with generous custom built-ins! Well-executed with an aim to retain its authentic loft flavour, this is ready to occupy as-is or treat it as a blank canvas to reinvent your own modern way of living. Fusing that true hard loft ambience with top notch creature comforts – and two side-by-side parking spots – it doesn’t get better than this!
