– High Park Lofts
In a neighbourhood full of tree-lined streets and thriving local businesses, the High Park Lofts is an eco-positive structure with 96 newly constructed units. Built by Stinson Properties and designed by Stanford Downey Architects, this development is one of the most beautiful new projects in the area.
Its most spectacular architectural element is the interior atrium that’s 120” long and 60” high. This innovative structure fills the unit with additional light from the interior windows. Along with soaring ceilings and open-concept layouts, the atrium contributes to High Park Loft’s cathedral-like ambience.
Many of the units are used as live/work spaces due to the added bonus of having private entrances. High Park Lofts also offers parking, storage lockers and a communal party room.
The units, located at 437 Roncesvalles Avenue, feature hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and outdoor terraces. Some units have rooftop patios that include BBQ stations. The rooftops are certifiably “green” with geothermal and solar-powered systems. This environmentally-conscious attention to detail improves both cost and energy efficiency.
Just south of Bloor Street, residents at High Park Lofts are only a few blocks away from the Dundas West subway station. Streetcar and bus stops in the area can easily transport you to popular neighbourhoods such as Little Italy and Liberty Village.
If you’d rather stay closer to home, Roncesvalles Village offers everything from local watering holes to an independent movie theatre. The Junction, another up and coming west end neighbourhood, is a short walk north with even more dining and shopping options.
High Park, the loft building’s namesake is ultimately one of the reasons why this location is so popular. Slightly west of 437 Roncesvalles Avenue, you will find a 400-acre municipal green space with sporting facilites, gardens, playgrounds, walkways and even a zoo.
