Condo of the week: 1 Columbus Avenue

Toronto may have plenty of condos advertised as lofts, but true hard lofts that look great aren't as common as you might think. This unit at 1 Columbus Ave. (near Dundas and Sorauren) is obviously an exception. It's just a beautiful space.

Good For

Someone who fell in love with the lofts featured in 1980s movies set in Manhattan. Let's not compare Toronto to New York, but this has that dreamy vibe that directors of the period cultivated.

You really want to live near a subway line. This condo boasts a 100 transit score, but not everyone loves the idea of relying on Toronto's streetcars.
