Bartlett Lofts

Built in the early 1900s, the building at 6 Bartlett Avenue has seen many uses during its more than 100 years of life. Originally a twine mill (which possibly fed the rope factory next door at 8 Bartlett?), it later became a garage of some sort, then finally a fishing tackle company. I have also heard that it was some sort of Portugese hall, a “casa beneficio”.

But it made its final change in 1985, when Allan D. Gordon Associates converted the venerable old warehouse into 13 lofts. Each unit in this boutique loft building is similar, all with two-bedroom / three-level floor plans. Windows are at either ends, only the end units have windows on the sides. The open-concept, multi-level layout creates a 30-foot light well down through the centre of the units, bringing sun from the skylight throughout. All of the lofts have private roof top terraces, exposed brick and exposed ductwork. And quirkily enough, they have wood-burning fireplaces. Grab a bear skin rub and get cozy!

Having been converted in 1985, 6 Bartlett is one of Toronto’s first original loft conversions. The project actually won an Ontario Renews Awards for the conversion from factory to residential housing. Owners are reaping the benefits of the rapidly gentrifying Bloorcourt Village. The neighbourhood is home to many of the smaller, original Toronto loft projects such as 41 Shanly, 8 Bartlett, 6 Bartlett and the Hepbourne Hall Lofts; plus the newer 40 West Lofts and Church lofts on Dovercourt.

The lofts range in size from 1,300 to 1,600 square feet, and each unit includes one separate exterior garage space. Maintenance fees are on the low side for their size, the same for each unit – but don’t include hydro. Security is by way of an enterphone system. The Bartlett Lofts offer unique living in Toronto’s west end, steps to the Bloor Subway Line and Dufferin Mall.
