Condo of the week: 385 Brunswick Avenue

The Loretto is an luxury condo in the Annex that's home to some very nice loft spaces. Formerly Loretto Abbey Day School, the adaptive re-use project, which was completed in 2007, boasts 46 units, of which this penthouse is one of the finest.

You don't need a five bedroom condo. While some of these spaces can be used for other purposes, this unit is bigger than most people's houses.
