Competition extends sale for Merchandise Building suite Add to ...




TAXES $4,064 (2013)


LISTING AGENT Boris Kholodov, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division

The Action: The Merchandise Building houses hundreds of authentic lofts, so many become available for sale simultaneously. To get more eyes on this two-bedroom penthouse, professional photographs and a video tour were created to persuaded about 30 shoppers to arrange in-person visits.

What They Got: In the former Sears warehouse built more than a century ago, this 1,376-square-foot suite was designed by Cecconi Simone with a modern, open plan with concrete floors and exposed ductwork throughout.

The entry hallway lies between sliding doors to the bedrooms, which both have doors to an open space with kitchen facilities tucked behind an island and living and dining areas along the south-facing windows.

Additional assets include two bathrooms, ensuite laundry facilities, a storage locker and parking.

Monthly fees of $828 pays for concierge and amenities, such as a gym, indoor pool and rooftop deck.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s not a usual layout: in order to get to the living space, you have to walk through either the den or the master bedroom, but it is a very attractive layout to people who desire an open space,” agent Boris Kholodov said.

“It offers fantastic views of the city, which is certainly one of the features that sold this property.”
