Bright Cozy Industrial Unit Makes Great Live/Work Space


Robert Watson Loft [Copyright]



If you ever bike down Sorauren Ave, it’s hard to miss one of the most iconic industrial lofts I am about to feature here...the Robert Watson Lofts at 363-369  Sorauren Ave located in one of Toronto’s best and most charming neighbourhoods in the west end.


A heritage landmark building with generous frontage at the north end of Sorauren Ave, the building sits on a tree-lined street dotted with new and century old lofts and historic homes.  The industrial conversion at 363 Sorauren Ave is a great example of adaptive re-use of early 20th century architecture, where old use was given a new life. Since its conversion from a Confectionery Factory into residences in 2008, the Robert Watson Lofts have been a popular building amongst creative professionals and design fanatics looking for authentic loft living with an edge. As time progresses, Robert Watson Lofts take on an organic form that makes its architecture more beautiful and endearing over time. The original restored details wrapped in the vintage brick patina showcasing an old industrial smokestack adds another flavour to classic loft living.


This cozy well-laid out one-bedroom in the circa 1903 heritage structure boasts lovingly restored industrial touches from the former candy factory. Unit 210 is one of the 153 units in the building complex.

Just listed this week, this one bedroom unit asks $469,000 including one deeded underground parking space (very rare to have deeded parking with conversions!). The monthly common element fee of $361.28 which includes water, heating and cooling, and common element maintenance. This industrial modern home comes with sanded and sealed concrete floors, large window with heaps of natural light, 13ft ceilings with exposed timber beams and exposed brick wall. Amenities include a garden terrace on the same level equipped with bbq, gym with sophisticated work out equipment, plenty of visitors parking, and a beautifully landscaped common courtyard bridging the restored building with the new addition behind the main heritage structure.

The building complex at 363-369 Sorauren Ave is also convenient to Sorauren Park [with tennis courts, leash free dog area, outdoor rink, weekly farmers market all year], steps to subway, Bloor GO station, UP Express to Pearson Airport, highway, bike trails and High Park. Not to mention residents can reap the benefits of the notable shops and restaurants in Roncesvalles Village, as well as own a little piece of Toronto architectural history.


If you are considering a taste of industrial loft life in a unique building, this unit comes with a lot of interesting extras. The generous foyer accommodates 3 bikes comfortably from the ceiling mounted bike racks. The wide gallery style hallway is perfect for showcasing large pieces of artwork or floor to ceiling book case for your home library.

At the other end a kitchen area equipped with 4 full size appliances large enough to fit a breakfast island. Can’t figure out where to mount your TV? No problem!
