Just steps from Queen Street shops and restaurants, the Printing Factory Lofts had two ownership opportunities early in December. This south-facing loft with a 300-square-foot patio was the one with more natural light – and professionally staged furnishings – and it quickly showed up on buyers’ radar.
“We had about 40 groups through. Considering that time of year, it was pretty good,” agent Jody Thompson said. “We had two written offers on the property and several others on the sidelines.”
What they got
A low-rise building originally built in 1913 is now home to hundred of lofts, such as this two-bedroom unit with exposed concrete ceilings and polished concrete floors.
Granite kitchen counters and stainless steel appliances add a modern touch to the open entertaining area. Hidden out of sight are two bathrooms and laundry facilities.
A locker and parking provide extra storage. Each month, $590 pays for water, concierge and a party room.
The agent’s take
“This is in the original part [of the building], which is the neat part of the factory lofts,” Mr. Thompson said.
“[Plus] this loft was renovated from top to bottom, and it has a beautiful patio on the main floor that was private.”
