Calling all authentic hard-loft lovers! We've found the place of your dreams.

You may have noticed by now that Leslieville's iconic i-Zone Lofts is a favourite of ours (we've featured several of its units in the past) - and for very good reason! Each of its lofts is truly unique, with their own layout, floor plan and finishes, but they all have some incredible features in common.

The building was once home to a Coca-Cola plant and a knitting mill (at different times of course!), and it's clear that much has been done to preserve its historical roots, and even celebrate them, in the way that various original elements and materials have been integrated into the design of its units. Soaring ceilings, massive windows, exposed beam & joists, polished concrete floors and exposed brick are standard here, and Unit #217 boasts these features to a showstopping effect.


The ceilings here are 17 feet, and in combination with the east-facing windows that front on Carlaw Avenue which span that entire height, the light that filters in is stunning. Check out the gleam in those newly ground and polished concrete floors!

The industrial feel continues into the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances & cabinets along the bottom and frosted glass cabinets above.

On the upper level you'll find the bedroom, overlooking the living space below. There are exposed beam & joists along the ceiling here as well, but a large skylight brightens up the space with natural light.

There are hardwood floors on this upper level, as well as lots of storage space and a washer/dryer. One of the unit's two full baths is up here as well.


We absolutely love the character and unique features of this one-of-a-kind loft. Its vast open-concept space would be perfectly suited as a home, an office - or both!

Have we mentioned its incredible location?! Close to the downtown core, in a phenomenal pocket of Leslieville! 

The loft comes with one undergound parking space, which is where your car will be sitting most of the time since you'll be within walking distance to phenomenal restaurants and coffee shops, amazing shops and hidden gem bars. Plus it's a short walk to Little India and transit is at your doorstep.

Should you need to leave your 'hood by car, there's easy access to the DVP as well.

In case you're wondering about outdoor space, this loft has that too! Or it will, anyway. The new owner of this place will have the rights to build a direct-access 450 square foot rooftop terrace, so you can enjoy a beer or coffee with a view in the summer months!

This dreamy loft is perfect for anyone who is searching for something truly unique to call home!
