Converted from a 100-year-old warehouse into 38 lofts, The Vinegar Lofts is an exclusive and historic residence in Toronto’s Queen East area. Streetcar Developments, the company also responsible for building Edge Lofts and Riverside Lofts, has taken care to preserve the heritage building’s original features including exposed brick and wooden beams. The exterior of the warehouse, built in the popular turn-of-the-century Edwardian Classicism style, has also been carefully restored.
Inside of the 3-storey warehouse structure, 16 of the lofts are authentic conversions. Along with the usual loft features, they boast ceilings that reach 14” and original industrial-style windows. On top of the warehouse rests a 2-storey glass extension that houses another 14 lofts with unobstructed views from floor-to-ceiling windows. All of the units have stainless steel appliances and modern finishings such as granite countertops.
Surrounded by Toronto’s Riverdale and Corktown neighbourhoods, The Vinegar Lofts are in a well-established area of the city. On the other side of the Don Valley Parkway is Leslieville and just to the south is the Distillery District. Nearby attractions include Riverdale Park, the Canadian Opera Company and brunch from the renowned café, Bonjour Brioche Limited.
Located on River Street, The Vinegar Lofts are slightly north of the intersection where King and Queen Street East come together. Because of this, residents at 19 River Street heading west have access to 2 major streetcar lines. For people who commute to elsewhere in the city, there could not be a better address. The nearby Don Valley Parkway, for example, connects to all of the region’s main highways including the 401, 404, Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard.
