Westmoreland Church Lofts

17 boutique lofts in a unique Toronto heritage church

Located steps away from Bloor Street West, downtown is only minutes away! Standing proudly in downtown Toronto, the historical church at 40 Westmoreland is being transformed into luxurious lofts while preserving the integrity and beauty of the original structure.

The Anglican church of St. Mary the Virgin and St. Cyprian, at Westmoreland Avenue and Bloor Street, is being converted into the Westmoreland Lofts.

Standing proudly in downtown Toronto, this historical church is being transformed into luxurious lofts while preserving the integrity and beauty of the original structure.

The authentic hard loft residences of the Westmoreland Lofts have been creatively and sensitively designed to capitalize on the grandeur of the soaring cathedral ceilings and the rich detailing of stone columns, capitals, hammerhead wood trusses and majestic, brick gothic arches and windows.

40 Westmoreland Church Lofts

As of today, there are 7 lofts left. They range from a 1,290 square foot 1+1 with 2 baths and parking for $593,000 to 1,716 square feet for $759,000. Each loft at the Westmoreland Lofts preserves the original architectual features, such as beautiful granite stone columns, cathedral ceilings up to 30 feet, hammerhead wood trusses and brick gothic arches. At this point, designs can still be changed and units can have 2 or 3 bedrooms, is the purchaser desires.

It also seems that, at this point, the Westmoreland Lofts are going to be freehold and not condo. I will have to double check that.

As my regular followers know, I have been talking about this loft conversion project for years. It was originally supposed to be complete in 2003 – which obviously did not happen. Then I heard from an investor who may or may not have been working with the folks from The Abbey. And nothing happened. Then the church at 40 Westmoreland – building, plans, permits and all – were sold off by the bank a few months ago. I wish I had had the time to get some people together to buy it. But alas, it was not to be.

But there seems to be a serious group behind it now and there is nothing to stop this project from moving forward. It would be nice to see two church conversions so close together, with The Church Lofts on Dovercourt just a couple of blocks away.

If you want to own a huge and cool space, let me know, I would be happy to arrange a personal tour.
