Abbey Lane Lofts is a boutique residential building with only 26 units on 6 floors. It was designed by Len Sedun, an award-winning architect, to reflect the historic charm of the surrounding King East neighbourhood. In fact, the Abbey Lane Lofts are located on one of Toronto’s original ten blocks. Many of the buildings in the area have restored turn-of-the-century architecture and are classified by the city as Heritage Properties.
The developer behind Abbey Lane Lofts, Harhay, is also responsible for Toronto’s Tecumseth, Stewart and Zen Lofts. The lofts in the building are not authentic loft conversions, but they give the real thing a run for their money. These soft lofts, ranging in size from 600 to 2200 sq. ft., boast high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. On the top floors, the units are multi-storey with spacious terraces.
The Distillery District is to the east of the building and the St. Lawrence neighbourhood is to the west. Residents at the Abbey Lane Lofts are within walking distance to tons of great restaurants, boutiques, cafes and city landmarks. The St. Lawrence Market, for example, is just up the street and the Canadian Opera Company is one block south. There are many parks in the area including David Crombie, Moss and Saint James.
From Abbey Lane Lofts, the rest of Toronto is within reach via the King subway station, only a short streetcar ride away. For destinations outside of the city, the nearby Gardiner Expressway filters into main highways like the Don Valley Parkway, Lakeshore Boulevard, the 401 and the 404.
