Croft St Lofts

These 5 lofts covered in the ivy were carved out of an old building that had been a munitions factory in WW 1 and since the 1920s had been a turkish rug cleaning factory. In the 80s it was finally converted into lofts after great opposition from the city of Toronto was overcome. Each loft is 2,000 sq ft, has 2 decks, and has had a parking space carved out of the 1st floor. These were among the first loft conversions in Toronto but there are now hundreds all over the downtown area. I left the pic wide so you could see how narrow a laneway Croft St really is. One more day tomorrow on Croft St.

There's such a mix of styles here. A touch of New Orleans in the wrought iron balconies, a bit of city centre mews, and rampant greenery.

What cool places. So much bigger than what we have.
