Condo of the week: 637 Lake Shore Boulevard West

The Tip Top Lofts are one of those condo buildings in Toronto where turnover is infrequent. As one of the nicer residential adaptive re-use projects in the city, it would seem that buyers here tend to be happy with the mix of historical features and modern amenities.

I'm sure the lakeside location doesn't hurt, either.

This one will have broad appeal, but will really captivate potential buyers intrigued by the character of the building and its location right on the waterfront.

As indicated by the low-ish Walk Score, the drawback to being right on the lake is that there aren't exactly a ton of amenities nearby. Someone who wants to walk pretty much everywhere will do better in a more central location.
