The 3-storey building at 80 Sherbourne Street is part of a complex known as the Imperial Lofts. Converted from 1930’s Art Deco offices into open concept residences, these are charming and historic homes with an industrial modern edge.
While other buildings can only mimic authentic conversion lofts, Imperial Lofts offer the real deal. Built by Plaza Corp in the late 90’s, these are the spaces that soft lofts wish they were. Some of the features of the suites in 80 Sherbourne Street are 10 ½” concrete ceilings, concrete columns and exposed ducts and pipes. Because of their open concept floorplans, the interior design options are limitless.
The other part of the complex is located at 90 Sherbourne Street. It’s a larger building with 6 storeys and more wood-style finishes. They are both impressive structures with only slight variances of style and ambience—for example, 80 Sherbourne is smaller and therefore more intimate.
Both buildings have access to Imperial Lofts’s rooftop patio. From there, residents can enjoy panoramic views of the city and grill up some dinner on the BBQ. The only other amenities in the building are parking spaces and lockers. This results in shockingly low maintenance fees for such an in-demand building.
Just north of Adelaide Street East, Imperial Lofts is located in Toronto’s rapidly developing east end. Residents are only minutes away from the Financial District, St. Lawrence Market and the TTC. From 80 Sherbourne Street, tt’s just as easy to browse the shops on Queen and King as it is to hop onto one of Toronto’s major highways and head up north for the weekend.
