When the stretch of King Street, west of Bathurst, became the site of many innovative luxury residences, the Electra Lofts was one of the first buildings on the scene. Developed by the Landmark Building Group, this 11-storey mid-rise is definitely a landmark at 1029 King Street West.
Inspired by warehouse conversion lofts (aka “hard lofts), Electra Lofts is a sharp-angled building that boasts 16” windows. All of the units have balconies and the penthouses have rooftop terraces. There are 213 newly constructed lofts (aka “softs lofts) at 1029 King Street West and they feature 17” ceilings, exposed concrete, glass railings and brick accents.
The suites were designed by the renowned Wallman Clewes Bergman Architects whose other projects include X-Condominiums, Lumiere and Reve. The firm’s successful re-creation of hard loft style is just one of the reasons I’ve chosen Electra Lofts for SelectCondos.ca.
Similarly to many hard lofts, the units in Electra Lofts have 2-storey open-concept layouts with a mezzanine. Unlike many hard lofts, the building offers amenities such as an exercise room, a boardroom, a sauna, a party room and guest parking.
King West Village is a popular residential location for several reasons. It’s close to the downtown core and is incredibly accessible via the TTC or highways. Many popular event venues such as the Rogers Centre and Ontario Place are also nearby. If you’re heading out of town, highway 427 to Pearson airport and the Toronto Island airport are only moments away.
