A rare commercial opportunity is available in Toronto: the building housing Canada’s first indoor rock-climbing gym is for sale as an investment property.

Agents David Horowitz or Gregory Lever of Lennard Commercial Realty are marketing 29 Fraser Avenue in Liberty Village, which contains six large live/work units and anchor-tenant Joe Rockhead’s Indoor Climbing Gym, established in 1990.

Units inside the building are all leased and offer a total gross floor area of 19,357 sq ft and a total rentable area of 18,305 sq ft. The gym is currently shut due to the pandemic but will reopen shortly and is a beloved spot among the city’s thriving climbing community.

And while the ‘Bridgman’ style building is not heritage protected, it has plenty of period charm via its brick facade with roundel and clerestory windows and decorative quoins. The early 20th-century structure was also one of the first in the area to feature a steel truss roof, prefabricated in Pittsburgh.

The commercial property is close to the GO Train station and King Street West transport links with price available on application.
