Sprawling Toronto train factory loft asks for $1.63m

A glass elevator tube is just one of the unusual features at this sprawling Toronto loft, located inside a converted train factory in the Corso Italia neighbourhood, close to The Junction.

The three-bedroom Toronto property is listed via Sage Real Estate for $1.629 CAD and is set across three levels inside the former Canadian Foundry Building at 1100 Lansdowne Avenue. The heritage-listed building dates from the turn of the 20th century and underwent adaptive reuse, being converted into 104 lofts, designed by Burka Architects, in 2008.

This 2,500 sq ft unit is among the biggest in the converted factory, and it boasts 27-ft-high ceilings, exposed trusses, iron columns and brick. Huge Crittal windows hone an industrial vibe which is further heightened by a monochrome colour scheme. Arched doorways and floating walls maintain the vertical height and light-flow of the loft while creating private spaces.

The Foundry loft at 1100 Lansdowne Avenue is outfitted with a chef-grade kitchen big enough to ‘feed an army,’ says the listing, and comes with access to the building’s indoor ‘park’ atrium, two parking spots and other amenities.
