The Creed Lofts are authentic loft conversions that were transformed in the late 1990’s by Architect Bernard Watt. Also responsible for The Church Lofts on Dovercourt Road, Watt specializes in turning historic buildings into luxury residences. The Creed Lofts, on Davenport Road, are another outstanding example of his aesthetic, creativity and attention to detail.
Originally a fur storage warehouse, the structure now houses 19 Art Deco-style lofts that range in size from 800 to 1200 sq. ft. They feature multi-level open layouts with fireplaces, hardwood floors, atriums, skylights, 13” high ceilings and outdoor terraces. Due to the limited amount of lofts available in the building, these spaces are truly an exclusive experience.
It’s also the location of the building that puts the lofts in such high demand. Situated on the cusp between The Annex and Yorkville, residents at Creed Lofts have two trendy Toronto neighbourhoods at their fingertips.
The Annex is a student-friendly area that is loaded with cheap and cheerful dining, drinking and shopping options. Make sure to visit Brunswick House, one of Toronto’s oldest taverns, and Harbord Room, which was ranked third best new restaurant in Canada by Enroute Magazine.
Conversely, Yorkville is a more upscale neighbourhood where you can find ritzy restaurants and designer boutiques. Many companies, like Chanel and Harry Rosen, have also chosen Yorkville for their flagship stores making the area comparable to international shopping districts like Los Angeles’ Rodeo Drive and New York City’s Fifth Avenue.
Creed Lofts offers its residences the best of both worlds while also creating its own world—a place where fur storage warehouses become Art Deco lofts. There are not many places like this in Toronto so it’s an exciting opportunity when one of the spaces becomes available.
