At first, we were going to call this article “The Cheapest Lofts in Toronto.” The word “cheap”, however, does these lofts an injustice. They are not the run-down or dilapidated homes that the word “cheap” implies.
These lofts are architecturally-stunning spaces that feature open concept floorplans, large windows and high end interior finishes. They are more affordable than other lofts in Toronto because of their locations.
For lofts in Toronto’s downtown core, you can easily pay $550 to $700 per square foot. To find a more affordable loft, you need to look at locations in up and coming areas.
Buying a loft in an area undergoing gentrification is also ideal if you want your purchase to appreciate in value see Why Lofts Make For Strong Investments. Corktown, Leslieville and Parkdale are all examples of up and coming neighbourhoods.
By choosing your location wisely, you can get more square footage for your budget. You’ll get more bang for your buck without buying “less” of a loft.
It’s worth nothing that there are exceptions. In our opinion, the Tribeca Lofts are low in price and low in quality. We’ve included it on truelofts.ca because it is an authentic hard loft conversion, but we think it lacks much of the character and charm of other affordable lofts in Toronto.
In comparison, the Upper Beaches Lofts are much nicer and still affordable. The Foundry Lofts are perhaps the most stunning of all with 19″ ceilings and original exposed brick walls.
Here’s the list. To view the actual loft profiles, click on the name below.
