Condo of the week: Brewery Lofts

Toronto's home to plenty of loft spaces, but a handful tend to sweep up the lion's share of attention when it comes to architecture and design. The Candy Factory and Tip Top Lofts come to mind, but a building that I've always thought deserved more recognition is the Brewery Lofts.

brewery lofts torontoDespite its name, the existing building's history is tied to its use as the CBC’s prop warehouse, a function it was built for in the 1950s. The building was converted to residential lofts in the late 1990s.
