Ironworks Lofts – 99 Chandos Avenue

A fairly recent conversion of a small industrial building, completed around 2008-2009 by 99 Chandos Studio Lofts Inc. It is a small boutique loft with only 15 units consisting of 1 studio unit, 6 one-bedroom units and 8 two-bedroom units. Most are single level, with nice modern finishes, though lacking much in the way of hard loft character.

The front of the Ironworks Lofts at 99 Chandos Avenue

There is a 350-square-foot common rooftop area, and some of the lofts have their own private outdoor space. There are only 12 parking spots, so 3 of the lofts do not have a space. Ten of the spots are behind the building, off Brandon Avenue, with the other two spots in front of the building.

The lofts are large at the Ironworks Lofts

Most of the lofts are rather large, in the 855 to almost 1,600-square-foot range. There is the occasional bit of brick, or a metal beam peeking out, but mostly you see drywall. The prices are good for the size, mainly a function of location. Ceilings range from around 9 to 11 feet, nothing too soaring.

The Ironworks Lofts have the size of some houses

Cannot for the life of me figure out what it used to be, so I have no idea where the Ironworks name came from. Land registry has it being built in 1970, which makes as much sense as anything. It seems to have been business units for quite some time  – marketing company, events specialist and massage parlour are what I could dig up.

There is some exposed brick here and there in the Ironworks Lofts

At one point it was being illegally occupied for residential purposes, and local residents complained to the city. This is what drive the initial application for re-zoning to residential use in 1998. It then came up again at Council in 2006, with permits being issued in 2008. It seems the developer was not quick and an extension was requested and allowed, it seems, as construction continued. Then in 2009 they were first offered for sale on MLS. At least the original purple facade has been changed to a more sedate grey.

A few lucky Ironworks Lofts have private outdoor space

The location is a little odd, but interesting. The Ironworks Lofts are close to Earlscourt Park, Dufferin subway, schools, parks, shopping and more. Off the beaten path but still fairly close to downtown. Certainly an interesting – and affordable – option for those looking for hard loft conversions.
