52 Sumach is new loft-style condo building in Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood built by Streetcar Developments, which is known for their other beautiful low-rise projects such as the Edge Lofts and Vinegar Lofts. Named one of the five best condo projects of 2010 (along with sister condos 549 and 569 King Street East) by Toronto Star condo critic Christopher Hume, suites in this low-rise building have an authentic hard loft, warehouse-inspired feel complete with open concepts, high ceilings and exposed ductwork.
The suites at 52 Sumach have balconies, and amenities in the building include a fitness centre, a lounge, a billiards room and an eco-friendly rooftop green space and patio.
Close to the Distrillery District and the St. Lawrence Market, the building also offers residents easy access to the Don Valley Parkway.
Corktown is experiencing a growth period and is currently seeing plenty of interesting stores and businesses move into the neighbourhood. While it’s still developing, it has lower rent than other eclectic Toronto neighbourhoods and shop owners are finding this attractive. Corktown is described as the “next” Leslieville, soon being home to many one-of-a-kind shops, boutiques, designer stores and cafes.
