Modern living in a boutique heritage loft
South Corktown building close to Distillery District, with views of Lake Ontario
Location: 90 Trinity St., Unit 708, Front and Parliament Sts. Asking price: $569,000 Size: About 772 square feet Parking: one owned underground space, one owned locker Maintenance fees: $624.83 per month Taxes: $2,974 (2015) Bedrooms: 1 plus 1 Bathrooms: 2 Nestled between Toronto’s Corktown and the Distillery District, this boutique building known as Trinity Lofts was built by Streetcar Developments less than five years ago. It was once a bread factory and is a designated heritage building. Eight storeys, it has a unique curved frontage with lots of windows, coupling the heritage feel with a contemporary style. This one bedroom unit is on the seventh floor, allowing for unobstructed views of downtown Toronto.
“It has been an unforgettable three years living in a loft in such a prime Toronto location. We have enjoyed many strolls along the nearby historical brick streets at the Distillery District and visiting local art galleries, as well as early morning runs through the Corktown Commons park down to Cherry Beach. The daytime views from our suite of Lake Ontario have also been spectacular," says owner Jane Yoon.
“Trinity Lofts’ convenient location was one of the main reasons why we chose to purchase the unit pre-construction. My husband Richard works in the downtown core and I take a brief commute against traffic up the Bayview extension to get to midtown where I work."
“There is no need for a car in this urban location, as the building is within a short walking distance to restaurants in Leslieville and has quick access to the King St. streetcar line. But for those who have a car, the building is located right off the south and north exit ramps of the DVP,” says listing agent Isaac Quan.
“This corner unit is the only unit in this building with such a spacious layout and balcony size. The unit boasts a 287-square-foot, wraparound balcony with south-west facing views of the city and lake. The owners spent a lot of money on upgrades for this loft, such as hardwood floors, white quartz countertops, a kitchen island with cabinets and a custom backsplash, a gas hookup on the balcony, a space-saving sliding glass bedroom door, pot lights, extended height cabinetry and modern faucets and sinks,” adds Quan.
Condo amenities in the building in- clude a gym on the mezzanine level, a party/meeting room, a rooftop deck with views of the city and a gas barbecue, a security system and visitor parking.
The suite is L-shaped. The front door opens to a foyer with a double closet, nine foot exposed concrete ceilings and a hardwood floor.
Just off the foyer is the open-concept den with a modern light fixture, and room enough for a day bed.
There is a powder room adjacent to the den.
Spacious and open concept, the combined living room and dining room is flooded with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides.
It features a chandelier, two concrete pillars, nine foot exposed concrete ceilings, hardwood floors, and two sliding glass door walkouts to the wraparound balcony.
The modern kitchen boasts an island/breakfast bar, with space for two chairs. Other highlights are quartz counters, brick-style ceramic backsplash, track lights, a hardwood floor, and built-in stainless steel appliances — including a built-in microwave oven.
The bedroom is entered from sliding glass doors off the living/dining rooms. Features of the bedroom include a hardwood floor, a large walkin closet, a sliding-glass door walkout to a separate private balcony, floorto-ceiling windows, a nine foot, exposed concrete ceiling and a fourpiece ensuite.
There is a small ensuite laundry room beside the kitchen, and the unit comes with an underground parking space and a locker room.
