One Six Nine Lofts, located at 169 John Street, is a rarity in this area of Queen West. Across from the famous MuchMusic building, it’s an intimate boutique-style residence that houses 45 suites on 11 floors.
From One Six Nine, you can expect standard loft features such as high, exposed concrete ceilings and innovative floor plans in each of the suites. Hardwood floors, spacious balconies and high-end appliances further sweeten the deal. An interesting feature is the triple-parking stackers that hydraulically lower cars into the underground garage. It’s the first system of its kind in the entire Greater Toronto Area. There are no amenity fees for One Six Nine Lofts which puts it into a reasonable price bracket.
One Six Nine Lofts was developed by Harhay Construction and designed by Core Architects. Harhay is also responsible for Zen Lofts, Abbey Lane Lofts, 32 Stewart and Tecumseth Lofts; while Core Architects are accredited with 66 Portland 455 Adelaide, 75 Portland and Six50 King West Condominiums. As you can see, it’s safe to say that when it comes to lofts, Harhay and Core Architects know exactly what they’re doing.
Undoubtedly, One Six Nine Lofts’ location in the Queen West District is a major contributor to its appeal. Residents are steps away from both the Financial and Entertainment District, close to Yonge-University subway line and minutes from Toronto landmarks like the Art Gallery of Ontario. This is a neighbourhood where worlds collide—Toronto’s arts and culture community with Toronto’s business and financial sector. This is definitely a covetable building in an equally covetable neighbourhood.
