Corktown District Lofts from Streetcar Developments brings chic, contemporary living to historic neighbourhood

Established in the early 1800’s by pioneering Irish emigrants from County Cork, the neighbourhood in Toronto’s east end which would become known as Corktown is once again home to a pioneering group of residents intent on creating a vibrant and dynamic sense of community along this significant stretch of King Street.

Located east of the Don River and bordered by Shuter Street, Lakeshore Boulevard and Berkeley Street, the Corktown neighbourhood is one of Toronto’s most historic enclaves. However, in an ironic twist, this historic community is fast becoming home to some of the city’s most contemporary and cutting-edge new condo developments.

The latest development planned for the neighbourhood, called Corktown District Lofts and Towns, has been developed by Streetcar Developments.

Coupled with the high profile redevelopment of the Distillery District (immediately south of Corktown) into a world-class destination for art, architecture, food and fashion, and the plans of the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corp. transforming the West Don Lands into the jewel of the city’s future waterfront redevelopment, Toronto’s lower east-side is quickly becoming the city’s most vital and vibrant location.

“We immediately recognized the importance of Corktown to Toronto’s history as well as its modern day significance,” says Alie Warren, VP Marketing for Streetcar Developments. “Believing equally in the value of the neighbourhood’s past as we do its future, we set out to create condo projects of distinction which reflect the unique characteristics of the area. Our latest project, Corktown District Lofts, which launches April 21st, 2007, will continue this trend.”

Corktown District Lofts and Towns will offer three boutique mid-rise properties at King East, between Sumach and River, all which will be registered as a single condominium with shared amenities. The buildings, to be located at 52 Sumach St., 549 King St. East and 569 King St. East, will rise 6 storeys, with elegant rooflines and stylish architectural profiles set in a modern fusion of concrete, steel, glass and brick.

“Based on our past loft projects, the development of the Corktown District Lofts and Towns is a natural evolution for Streetcar,” says Alie Warren, referring to the company’s legacy of converting historic urban spaces into contemporary loft residences across Toronto’s lower eastside.

Among some of Toronto’s most successful loft conversions of formerly industrial spaces, Streetcar’s past projects include the Queen City Vinegar Co. Lofts on River Street, 952 Kingston in Toronto’s Beach community and the Academy Lane Lofts on Queen East.

“These authentic loft conversions in the past have given us the necessary experiences and insights into loft living, which, today, have allowed us to create a fresh, new contemporary interpretation of traditional loft conversions,” says Alie Warren. “Where once expansive windows, extended ceiling heights and open concepts were only available in converted industrial buildings, we are now able to offer the same compelling loft-like features, but with new construction.”

Designed by Quadrangle Architects Inc., the architecture of Corktown District Lofts will redefine the urban habitat by offering a modern interpretation on the traditional loft-style environment.

Units at Corktown District Lofts will offer a bold, modern statement on design, accented throughout by soaring 10 foot ceilings, oversized warehouse-style windows and ultra-hip polished concrete floors. Each will feature designer-inspired layouts and finishes, including kitchens that will boast contemporary European-style cabinetry, a range of stainless-steel appliances and stone countertops.

Corktown District Lofts residents will also enjoy access to a professionally equipped health and fitness centre that includes a lounge complete with 60″ plasma HD television, and a WiFi-ready living environment. Those who seek a little social conscience with their condo lifestyles will also be able to enjoy the Corktown District‘s eco-friendly rooftop greenspaces, access its unique vehicle-share program, or take advantage of its ample bicycle parking.

“With a vibrant past and a dynamic future Corktown has quickly begun to develop a reputation as one of Toronto’s truly great neighbourhoods, and we are excited and privileged to be a part of that legacy,” says Alie Warren
