The Tip Top Lofts is a stunning hard loft conversion right on Toronto’s waterfront. Originally a warehouse for Tip Top Tailors, floors 1-5 are part of the historic structure from 1929. Above the 5th floor, a modern extension was built which offers mezzanine and multi-storey layouts. Ceiling heights are 13” on average and many of the units feature floor-to-ceiling windows.
Designed by Architects Alliance and built by Context Develpements, the team behind Tip Top Lofts is highly accomplished. Some of the projects these 2 firms have worked together on include Spire, MoZo and Radio City. Tip Top Lofts has made it onto SelectCondos because it’s an exciting architectural project that has quickly become a landmark in Toronto.
On 11 floors, Tip Top Lofts houses 256 units. They range between 599 and 2251 sq. ft. and some units have balconies. The features are modern and industrial such as cement mushroom pillars, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and large windows. The building also offers a fitness centre, a gym, a Jacuzzi, a lounge and a party room with a catering kitchen. Those kind of amenities are rare in hard loft buildings which adds to the uniqueness of the building.
Located at 637 Lake Shore Boulevard, Tip Top Lofts is close to the Gardiner Expressway and the streetcars on Bathurst and Queens Quay. Residents have immediate access to great urban green spaces such as Coronation Park, Princes’ Gate and Garrison Common. Nearby attractions include Harbourfront, Liberty Village and King West.
