66 Portland Street is the address of a modern boutique residence designed by Core Architects. Within the building’s glass walls, you will find 85 stunning lofts that feature open concept floorplans and floor to ceiling windows. These lofts are classified as “soft lofts” because they are newly constructed units inspired by authentic warehouse/factory conversions. They do, however, offer many of the same industrial-style finishes such as 10” ceilings, exposed concrete columns with flared capitals and engineered hardwood floors.
Only 9-storeys high, this is an intimate building in a highly desirable area. One block south of King Street West, the neighbourhood is right in the downtown core. Lofts on the upper levels of 66 Portland have large terraces that look down on all the action below. There are also balconies on the north side of the building, right above King.
This trendy district is home to many of Toronto’s best restaurants, bars, theatres, galleries and boutiques. A short stroll on King, going east, will bring you past the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the Royal Alexandria Theatre and the Princess of Wale Theatre. Some of the great dining spots in the area include Brassaii, Le Select Bistro and Marben.
One of the advantages of 66 Portland’s urban environment is that many of the city’s attractions are within walking distance. You’re surrounded by Liberty Village, Queen West Village, Harbourfront and the Entertainment District. Additionally, your close proximity to popular event venues, like the Rogers Centre, mean that you can enjoy the show without worrying about traffic or parking.
