This $2.4 million Toronto home used to be a grunge-era concert hall

From old jails to former schools, tons of Toronto buildings had another life before being transformed into private homes.

And Unit 03 at 62 Claremont Street has its own storied history.

Built in the 1930s, the Claremont Lofts originally served as a banquet hall and then a grunge-era concert hall before the building was converted into an octet of stunning hard lofts in 2000.62 Claremont Street

A more recent renovation has created a luxurious modern aesthetic within Unit 03, with walnut flooring, exposed brick, custom millwork, and calcutta marble.

Stepping into the 2,500 square foot home, you're met with a pristine foyer that offers a sizable closet, powder room, and garage access.
