426 Queen St E in Regent Park, Downtown, Toronto, M5A1T4
Formerly an industrial building of the early 1900s, The Knitting Mill Lofts was converted into modern hard-loft residences in 1998. It can be found on Queen Street East at Sackville Street, just south of Regent Park.
As a designated heritage building, the history of The Knitting Mill Lofts can be seen in the original red brick walls, heavy structural beams, exposed ductwork and exceptionally tall windows. Today, the property stands at just four-storeys and offers 28 Toronto lofts, all of which enjoy spacious floor plans that range from bachelor apartments to two-bedroom suites. It’s a charming residence that could be perfect for young professionals desiring a modern space to live and work, with some of the lower level units showcasing an enclave office space. But they are also great spaces for anyone seeking a truly authentic loft-conversion feel with beauitful hardwood floors and tons of sunlight.
Situated between Corktown and Regent Park, The Knitting Mill Lofts offers residents a charming and revitalized neighbourhood filled with a wide array of cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, and pleasant parks and green spaces.
Most Notable Features
Trefann Court: The Knitting Mill Lofts reside within a small community known as Trefann Court, between Parliament and River Street along Queen. Once an industrial centre, the area is now known for its history of urban renewal resistance and the preservation of older architecture, acting as an inspiration for the city planning behind Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market area.
Convenient TTC access: One great perk about these downtown Toronto condos is the direct access to the Queen Street streetcar. Residents will love the convenience of doorstep TTC that can zip them along to Yonge Street, the subway, or east into Leslieville and Toronto’s Beaches.
Pets allowed: Part of the charm and character of many lofts in Toronto is the friendliness towards pets. Cats will love basking in the sunshine from the huge warehouse windows, and dogs will enjoy a neighbourhood filled with quaint streets and green-filled parks.
