Gotham Lofts – From Harness Factory to Hip Urban Loft Living

For people who like the downrown urban life, who want to be in the middle of it all, you couldn’t pick a better area than King Street West. All of Toronto’s pulsing nightlife, tons of great restaurants, theatres and access to the TTC is right on your doorstep.

If you work in the downtown core, you can be there in a matter of minutes by walking, or hopping on your bike, or strapping on your blades. You can also jump on the King Street streetcar and be at either University or Yonge subway lines in five minutes.

Theatre goers will be close to Toronto’s best live entertainment venues in the heart of the Entertainment District. And if it’s dancing, discos and night life that catch your fancy, you can leave the car at home and stroll to most of the city’s hottest clubs.

If you’re catching the Raptors or Leafs in action at the Air Canada Centre, it’s a quick streetcar ride away, or a brisk 15-minute walk. If baseball is more your style, the Blue Jays SkyDome games are even closer.

Originally a harness factory constructed in 1917, the Gotham Lofts are very unique and one of Toronto’s first authentic loft conversions. Some of the features at Gotham Lofts are 9 1/2 to 12 foot ceilings, exposed brick, timber columns and joists, large windows and hardwood floors.

When you step into the Gotham Lofts lobby, it is so beautiful you’ll stop to take it all in. From the original entry doors and green marble floors, to the soaring ceilings and beautiful accents, it takes your breath away. The funky hallway broadloom even continues into the elevators.

On the lower level, there is a fully equipped gym (with exposed brick walls and glass block windows), three meeting rooms, a common room and lockers. There is also underground bike storage, and free visitor parking – 12 spots for 50 units – which is virtually unheard of in Toronto loft conversions! Closed circuit security cameras throughout the building and the parking garage are monitored and accessed through Citysphere Condos (801 King Street West) who provide the building with 24-hour security.

There is a nice exercise facility at the Gotham Lofts, but if you want to go for a brisk jog or just enjoy a leisurely weekend picnic – you’ll find the perfect spot at nearby Trinity Bellwoods park. Just north on Strachan to Queen Street West, the park has a great playground, tennis courts and fields big enough for a soccer or football game. There is also a public swimming pool at the Trinity Recreation Centre.

The Harness Factory Lofts offer many fantastic two-level suites! Some enjoy a west, sunny view with towering 9-foot windows that capture all of the natural light. Some units are entered from the upper level, enjoying the openness of the combined living room and dining room with beautiful hardwood floors. The high 12-foot original wood ceilings really give you a wonderful feeling of spaciousness in these terrific authentic hard lofts, keeping them bright and airy. Notice the gorgeous features such as exposed brick walls and beautiful circular iron staircases.

The kitchens are extremely functional, with loads of cupboard space, custom built pantry, and breakfast bar with seating area. They can be very sleek and modern with white appliances and cabinets, shiny black counter and hanging pot racks over the breakfast counters. Have your friends over, sitting at the counter, sipping wine, and chat away to them, while whipping up a gourmet dinner. The suites are all extremely well laid-out.

Descend (or ascend, depending on the unit) to the lower level master bedroom by way of the fabulous spiral staircase. Notice that the floors are 10″ thick, and solid wood. The bedrooms are very bright, with 9-foot windows. The ensuite laundry is located here. The dressing area in the hallway leads to the other level’s entry door (not available with all lofts).
