Flexible live/work space next to a Toronto cemetery asks for 2.5m CAD

Triple arches hint at the character inside this Toronto building in the city’s East End, located on the edge of a huge cemetery – and listed as a unique live/work space.

The Toronto property is located at 208 Kingston Road in the Woodbine Corridor community of the Upper Beaches. It’s adjacent to St John’s Norway Cemetery and Crematorium. Its single-storey frontage belies its footplate which juts back 3,932 sq ft from the street.

Redbrick exteriors give way to hard-loft interiors, with raftered timber ceilings, concrete and tiled floors and hewn timber pillars forming the base of the flexible space, currently used as a workshop.

ElliottAdam Medoff of Jones Lang Lasalle Real Estate Services is listing agent on the commercial property, which is asking for 2.5m CAD. Its touted adaptive reuse includes potential as a showroom, mix of office and residential accommodation or a gallery.
