The hard loft building at 1 Columbus Avenue, also known as the Baseball Factory Lofts, is a great opportunity to own an authentic loft in one of Toronto’s up and coming neighbourhoods. South of Dundas West, just off of Sorauren Avenue, this Roncesvalles neighbourhood has recently seen an influx of restaurants, cafes, boutiques, galleries and theatres. On your way to High Park, grab some premium espresso from Lit and artisan chocolate from Chocolateria.
Yes, High Park is only moments away from the Baseball Factory Lofts. Other neighbourhoods in the area include Parkdale and the Junction. The rest of Toronto is equally accessible via TTC streetcars or the Dundas West subway station.
Completed in 1996 by Jackson Goad Architects, this former Rawlings baseball glove factory is an intimate 5 storey building with only 10 units. The lofts range in size between 1300 and 2400 sq. ft. They feature exposed brick walls, wood 10” ceilings, polished concrete floors, industrial steel beams and some have private rooftop patios. There is also direct elevator access to a few of the units.
I’ve chosen the Baseball Factory Lofts for SelectCondos.ca because it’s a stunning building that’s also a good investment opportunity. Nearby developments such as the Robert Watson Lofts and the Feather Factory Lofts help increase the value of the building at 1 Columbus Avenue. Enjoy a unique loft space now and benefit from your purchase in the future—it’s a win-win situation.
