41 Shanly


This super building was the first legal loft conversion in Toronto back in 1981. What had been the Dominion Felt Works was renovated and turned into 10 two and three storey lofts with fireplaces, rooftop terraces, exposed brick walls and 12 ft ceilings. When I went by I noticed that it has had a new grey paint job - so chic compared to the derelict old factory it had been!

It must be amazing inside!
The painted number is very, very stylish! ;-)

Looks pretty cool!
Now I am curious how it looks on the inside!
I am lucky enough myself to live in old grain silo turned into apartments!
Have a wonderful sunday!

Eyeliquor - Me too - will have to wait for one to go on sale and go for a peek. I am in an old factory too.

Have had my eye on this one for years. If you hear about a sale please contact me, I too would love to see inside.

Looks like a great renovation job. I love the way the address number is blended into the paint job.

I didn't know this was the first legal loft conversion. I like learning new things. :)
