Forest Hill Lofts on Roselawn

A classic example of art deco architecture is converted into dramatic loft residences

For many years Murray Goldman, the Principal of The Goldman Group, has admired the stately building located at 1001 Roselawn Avenue, as would anyone who had an appreciation for classic loft architecture.

The graceful structure was built in 1932 and was the Canadian headquarters of Coats & Paton, a textile firm famous for its Beehive brand thread – in fact, a bumble bee remains carved in stone at the main entrance of Forest Hill Lofts.

Forest Hill Lofts is a magnificent four-storey, L-shaped edifice that once was surrounded by a group of smaller buildings, including a massive boiler house and towering smokestack. The disused buildings have now been remove and the grounds are being beautifully landscaped. The exterior walls will be refaced with stucco and exterior columns which will feature colourful tiles in keeping with the original art deco design.

Until the conversion of the factory began, the building was a favourite with movie directors and was used as a set for several movies. The appeal is obvious – Forest Hill Lofts boasts soaring 13-foot, 6-inch ceilings, large columns and 24-by 10-foot window spans.

All service systems, including plumbing and electrical wiring, as well as heating and ventilation, are completely new, and will feature expose ductwork in classic loft style. Even the floors are new concrete, poured and polished. In lots that have two levels, metal staircases are standard.

Suites at Forest Hill Lofts range in size from 67 to 1,108 square feet and include one-, two-, and two-bedroom-plus-den layouts. In addition, an optional open-concept plan affords purchasers all the space their imagination can play with.

Some lofts offer Juliet balconies, ground-floor exclusive -use patio terraces, or balconies with walkout from living room and master bedroom – as well, private rooftop terraces offer magnificent city views. The views are unobstructed in all directions, with spectacular sight lines of the CN Tower and the downtown skyline.

The kitchens feature European-style cabinetry, and the washrooms have marble countertops. Lockers are included and underground or surfaces parking is available. One bedroom lofts can still be had for around $300,000.

The Goldman Group is one of the most respected developers in the GTA, and was responsible for such distinguished communities as the CastleHill, Georgian townhomes at the foot of Casa Loma, as well as The Ports on Yonge Street at Summerhill.
