Chocolate Factory Co. Lofts
(Queen Street West)
OverviewCompleted in 2005, much of the Chocolate Factory Lofts at 955 Queen Street West actually are converted from the old Patterson Chocolate Factory. Located directly across Queen Street from Trinity Bellwoods Park — one of the city’s outstanding green spaces and recreational areas — 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 — much of it offering the original factory’s exposed yellow brick, high ceilings, huge windows, steel beams and timber posts — offers 146 units, all with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Amenities include fitness facilities, a party room, a recreation room, an events room and a 24-hour concierge.
