The Argyle Lofts is an authentic hard loft conversion. Originally built in 1873, it functioned as a bread baking factory until it was developed into residences by the We Care/Wise Move Group. Although this is the development group’s first residential project, the architectural part of the team is a seasoned veteran. Core Architects, an award-winning firm, has designed many lofts in Toronto including Zen Lofts, Camden Lofts, Charlotte Lofts and Chelsea Lofts.
Located at 183 Dovercourt Road, the Argyle Lofts building is 5 storeys tall and houses 86 units. The 2-storey mezzanine penthouses boast private courtyards and stunning views of the city. Lofts at street level have private front yards.
Beyond your front door, you will find Beaconsfield Village and West Queen West. These up and coming neighbourhoods have boomed in recent years with trendy restaurants, cafes and boutiques. The most notable local favourite is the Drake Hotel, a boutique establishment famous for its brunch, bar and nightly events.
The neighbourhood surround Argyle Lofts was a definitive factor in my decision to include it on SelectCondos. It’s safe, relatively quiet and is accessible via the Queen streetcar. Everything you could ever need is in this lively community, from art galleries to yoga studios. A short stroll from 183 Dovercourt will bring you to an artisan poutine shop, a yerba mate café and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art. How much more diverse could you get?
