This development offers true loft living. It offers sandblasted brick, wood beams, polished concrete floors and open concept layouts. Located at Eastern and Broadview, owners can slip onto the DVP and be uptown or downtown within minutes. This turn-of-the-century heritage building had been the United Drugs Factory in Toronto’s Lower Riverdale neighborhood. Its conversion into a contemporary loft-style condominium project offered the opportunity to preserve the spirit of its industrial history. Turner Fleischer retained the look and feel of the existing U-shaped building, while accommodating a two-storey glass penthouse addition and a five-storey complementary extension along Broadview Avenue. The iconic rooftop water tower was worked into the building’s final design. The adjacent row of eight new townhouses extends the project’s street presence along Eastern Avenue, incorporating a rear green-roofed parking structure behind. The central space became a welcoming landscaped courtyard. This project received 2nd Place in the 2008 Toronto PUG Awards.
