Candy Factory Lofts
(Queen Street West)
OverviewCompleted in 2000, the Candy Factory Lofts, at 993 Queen Street West, actually are converted from an old candy factory, the Cede Candy Company. The conversion took full advantage of the space, with eye-catching use of 12-foot ceilings, exposed brick, exposed wooden beams and ceilings and the addition of hardwood floors and granite counters. The Lofts also sit across from Trinity Bellwoods Park — one of the city’s outstanding green spaces and recreational areas — and the building is also in the centre of Toronto’s artiest stretch, and is a haven for those looking for galleries, bookstores, antiques, clothing stores and food. The six-storey building offers 121 units, ranging in size from 875 to 4,300 square feet. Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, a party room, guest suites, fitness facilities and a rooftop terrace and garden.
