The DNA Lofts, at 1005 King Street West, is a newly constructed loft building that was inspired by historic buildings in the area. King West Village is known for both new condominium developments and hard loft conversions. DNA Lofts has combined the 2 aesthetics to create a truly unique residence in this trendy part of downtown Toronto.
Completed in 2006 by Canderel Stoneridge Group, DNA Lofts consists of 2 limestone and sandblasted glass towers joined together by a flexible bridge in the 2-storey lobby. There are 229 units altogether that boast urban zen-style layouts and 9” ceilings. The suites, which range between 400 and 1700 sq. ft., are bright open spaces featuring floor to ceiling windows and large terraces. Other suite finishes include granite countertops, custom backlight mirrors, breakfast bars and lots of storage space.
The interiors are remarkably stylish which is unsurprising considering the prestige of the interior designers responsible for DNA Lofts. II by IV is a multi-awarding winning firm with an extensive portfolio that includes luxury loft and condominium developments all over the city. Some recent examples are Toy Factory Lofts and Madison Avenue Lofts.
Sitting at the corner of King Street West and Shaw Street, the exterior space of DNA Lofts is equally impressive. There are geometric gardens intersecting pathways, overhead trellis and evergreen hedges. A recognizable complex in the King West Village, DNA Lofts’ artful yet industrial appearance is indicative of its surrounding community. Mixing history with modern style, King West Village is a thriving neighbourhood that is also conveniently close to Toronto’s downtown core.
