This exclusive hard loft building was the former headquarters of the Evening Telegram Newspaper, now known as the Toronto Sun. The building, which dates back to the 1930’s, can be found at 264 Seaton Street. A quaint street in the south end of Cabbagetown, Seaton Street is close to Allen Gardens, Moss Park and Riverdale Park.
In addition to all the urban green space, Cabbagetown is the site of many new and exciting restaurants, boutiques, cafes and specialty stores. Grab a waffle bowl sundae from Sweet Creamery, watch live music at the Phoenix Concert Theatre and stock up on gourmet groceries at Lennie’s Whole Foods.
This location is also extremely accessible via the TTC. Streetcar stops on Carlton Street and Dundas Street East will bring you to subway stops on Yonge. Residents who commute by car enjoy the convenience of the nearby Don Valley Parkway. Parking is also available at 264 Seaton.
I’ve chosen to include Evening Telegram Lofts because they are authentic conversions and because there are only 10 units in the whole building. Those two factors combined make 264 Seaton one of the most exclusive residences in Toronto.
Each loft features large semi-circle windows, 14” ceilings, exposed brick walls and an open concept floor plan. In between the living room and the dining room there are ornate wooden doors that are from the original Evening Telegram building. Additionally, all the units have private access to a rooftop terrace.
