LARGE, THREE STORY TOWNLOFTS

  1. The TownLoft residences offered are each a total of 7,500 square feet of living space on three expansive levels.

  2. The interior floor area is larger than most lot sizes in the city.


HIGH CEILINGS

  1. The finished ceiling heights will be from 12 ft. to 14 ft.  Ceilings of this height are an ultimate downtown luxury.

  2. These ceiling heights come at the expense of not adding another floor to the building, (and that added revenue).


PRIVATE TERRACES

  1. The TownLoft residences have 1,300 square foot city view rear terraces and 200 square foot front terraces. 

  2.   Massive glass sliding doors to the rear terrace are an optional feature in the residences which can provide a luxurious

   Caribbean style open flow from the living room to the rear terraces.

  1. The terraces are engineered to support large plantings and hot tubs and designed to be flush with the interior floor level. 

  2. These terraces will be very private.  You can tan au naturelle if you locate a few plants on your your terrace. 


DESIGN FLEXIBILITY

  1. You have a total blank slate ... the interior design, features, materials and construction is totally up to you.

  2. Pretty well anything you’ve ever dreamed of or seen in a great design magazine can be done!

  3. With finished floor to finished ceiling heights of 12 - 14 feet, you can design in dramatic elevations, sunken living rooms,

   mezzanines or whatever you fancy.

  1. The terrace glass sliding doors at the rear of the residences can be modified to be as impressive as you want.  All sliding

   glass doors, glass folding doors that bring the terrace into the living room, staggered glass walls, indented terrace to

   provide overhead shelter, fireplace in a glass wall or any combination of these.

  1. The earlier you purchase, the more customization you will be able to do.


PRIVACY

  1. If you are spending a lot of money on a residence, do you really want your neighbors looking in on your life?

  2. The way the residences are situated they will be very private, yet right downtown.  No high rises surround the building.

  3. With only four residences you will rarely see the other owners.  The other owners are all like-minded, you can be as

   friendly or as private as suits you.


GOOD VIEWS

  1. The terraces are planned for city views.  The 3rd floor has good, expansive, unimpeded views of the downtown skyline.

  2. The 2nd floor has predominantly sky views.


GREAT LOCATION

  1. The TownLofts are located on Strachan Avenue in the heart of Queen West and at the foot of Trinity Bellwoods park,  

   one of the largest parks in the city.  To view a map of our location, click here.

  1. There is a fun creative vibe in this area with a lot of hip shops, great restaurants and many galleries.

  2. The building is also just a leisurely 12 minute walk to King and Portland, the hub of the King West district and a 15

   minute walk to the lake.


GOOD VALUE

  1. The residences are being sold as shells.  When they are finished the completed price per foot will be less than other

   freehold residences or new condominiums in the Queen / King West area.  This is exceptional value considering the

   phenomenal features being offered.


For some people the features above are a “must have”.  If you are one of these people, then The TownLofts may be the only option available.  In fact these options & possibilities, all combined in one residence rarely, if ever, come up.

Please go through the features below, read carefully and ask yourself if there is ONE other development in all of Toronto that has even half of these features.  The developer will be one of the TownLoft owners.  He has always lived in loft spaces, has extensive experience in building conversions and development, and has spent a lot of time and effort to create the ultimate dream list for loft living.

FEATURES YOU MAY REALLY WANT   

PRIVATE CARPORT AND GARAGE

  1. Two private carport parking spots are standard.

  2. A two car parking garage is standard.

  3. The high ceilings allow for storage racks or parking stacks at your option.

  4. The available space for this much parking per unit is a rare feature in the downtown core.


POOLS

  1. Owners have the option to install private swim spas on any of the floors.

  2. The swim spas that are considered for the residences are 19 ft. long, 8 ft. wide and 4 ft. deep.

  3. The second floor can also accommodate larger lap pools up to 45 feet long.

  4. Parts of the building can be substantially over engineered to accommodate the weight of these large pools.

  5. Added structure, mechanicals, glass, surrounds, pool and equipment makes this a $50,000 option.

  6. Check out the pools at  hydropoolhottubs.com


PRIVATE ELEVATOR OPTION

  1. You can install your own private elevator.  They are a great feature to have and are available for only $30,000 to $40,000.

BOUTIQUE BUILDING

  1. With only four residences The TownLofts will be a nice private, exclusive boutique building.


CUBIC FEET

  1. We have been trained to think in terms of square footage, but we should also think about cubic footage.  Twelve foot

   ceilings offer 50% more volume and 14 foot ceilings offer approximately 75% more volume than 8 foot ceilings.  As an

   example, a 1,000 square foot space with 8 ft ceilings has 8,000 cubic feet and the same space with 14 foot ceilings

   has 14,000 cubic feet.  This feature provides added value to your residence.


FRONT FACADE

  1. We are creating a modern, stunning facade.  Different architectural elements, depths of facade and high quality materials

   will be used.  This adds more value to your residence and adds pride of ownership.


LANDSCAPING

  1. The front of the building will have an exceptionally beautiful landscape plan.  This will include mature 20 - 30 foot trees,

   beautiful plantings, a bench and possibly a public art piece.


INTERIOR FLOOR LOAD

  1. Floor loading capacity on all residential dwellings in the city is 40 lbs per foot.  Our residences will have 60 to 125 lbs per

   square foot and even more if you want it engineered in.

  1. Billiard tables, pianos etc. are supported everywhere with no stress or sag.


BEEFED UP SERVICES

  1. Hydro - There will be a large enough service in each residence for:  HVAC, swim spa, hot tub, electric vehicle recharging

   and every other device you may come up with.

  1. Gas - A 1” gas line will be supplied to each residence, more than enough for all your requirements including direct

   connection to a gas BBQ.

  1. Water - A 1” water line will be supplied to each residence (not 1/2” which is standard, or 3/4” if the builder is being

   generous).  You will appreciate this when everyone in the building takes a shower at the same time.

  1. Drainage / Sewage - New lines will be brought in to each residence of the building to handle the added requirements for

   additional bathrooms, swim spas and hot tubs.


UPGRADED ROOFING SYSTEM

  1. Very careful consideration will be given to the terraces which can be a big problem area.  This is the reason why

   terraces are seldom offered.

  1. The best possible roofing and flashing systems will be used to start with.  After that, all flashing, seams, corners, drains

   and any pipes going through the roof will be additionally reinforced.


LOTS OF GLASS

  1. Most building conversions retain the majority of the old walls and do not really offer a lot of window surface.

  2. We have elected to provide a completely new front facade and rear facade which will be structurally engineered to

   provide expansive window surface and massive sliding doors.


LOW ASSOCIATION FEES

  1. Most condominium fees are approximately 40 to 70 cents a foot a month.  That would be $3,000 to $4,000 a month for

   residences of this size.

  1. Because this is a small building with no amenities and very little common element areas to maintain and clean, our

   association fees are expected to be $200 to $300 per month.

  1. This saves the owner $2,000 a month which is a great resale feature and adds to the value of your residence.

  2.   All owners will have a direct say on this amount and the degree of maintenance desired.


SOUND ATTENUATION

  1. The building code standard for sound attenuation is STC 50.  The STC rating for the walls between each of the

   residences will be greater than this.

  1. The association guidelines will ask that media rooms and master bedrooms have additional sound rating.

  2. We are going above and beyond to ensure you have peaceable enjoyment of your residence.


GREAT BENEFITS FOR EACH FLOOR

  1. Ground Floor - The ground floor will have the highest ceilings at 14 ft. and will have direct walk out street access. 

   Each residence has a large patio space in front.  As an option you have the ability to excavate down 3 to 4 feet

   in an area to create a sunken living area with a mezzanine above.

  1. Second Floor - The second floor has the most design flexibility with nearly 3,000 square feet of total space to play with. 

   This design flexibility allows you to make dramatic rear walls to the terrace.  Strongly consider staggering the rear glass

   wall to make a much larger terrace that has an overhead roof area for shade, dining or lounging.  The ceiling height will

   be 13 ft. 10 in. allowing for large canvasses and multiple elevations.  The 2nd floor can be engineered to accommodate

   up to 45 foot long swim spas or lap pools.

  1. Third Floor - The third floor has very private direct city views.  The ceiling height on this floor is 12 feet.  They also have

   total design flexibility with nearly 2,500 square feet of total space to play with.  Strongly consider staggering the back glass

   wall to make a larger terrace with a sheltered overhead area for dining or lounging that blends right into the living room

   for the summer.  The 3rd floor can be engineered to accommodate up to 19 foot long swim spas.


BUILDING TRADE SUPPLIERS

  1. The building will be using great sub-trades, craftsmen and suppliers.  You are welcome to use them and make your

   own deals with them.

  1. All units in the building are custom so there will be a good referral base of trades and suppliers from the other

   owners also.


DETAIL ORIENTED BUILDER                                                                                                                          

  1. The developer will be living in the building.  He will be on site every day inspecting every aspect of construction in detail. 

   Virtually every aspect of the buildings construction will be better than average and higher than code standards.  Countless

   details are being added to make the building a better place to live.  If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

  1. He expects to live there for 20 years or more.
