St. Lawrence Market Lofts
81A Front St EThe St. Lawrence Market Lofts building at 81A Front St E is simply the best place a foodie could call home; the evidence is in the name! Practically next door to the wildly-celebrated St. Lawrence Market, these Toronto lofts will give you a front row seat to all that goes on at the lively market and beyond. Originally a warehouse structure built about 140 years ago, this building was converted into lofts in 2001 by the Georgian Group. The lofts highlight original factory features such as exposed brick, wood posts and beams, exposed air ducts and hardwood floors, while incorporating lovely new additions, such as the building’s centerpiece: a lovely atrium flourishing with greenery throughout the entire year. This beautiful atrium ensures that regardless of the weather outside, summer exists in your very own building. Also in your building? Starbucks! You won’t have to stumble very far in the morning to get your triple grande nonfat extra hot latte, as the units in this building are located right above this popular chain coffee shop. Grab your grande to go, and explore all the St. Lawrence Market has to offer! The south St. Lawrence Market operates from Tuesdays through Saturdays and is filled with anything and everything your palate craves, even if you don’t know what it’s called yet! This is Toronto’s premier location for fresh fish, cheese, meat and produce, not to mention bulk food of every variety and specialty items you will not find anywhere else. You have a standing appointment with a farmer for Saturday mornings, as the Northern Market comes alive with the weekly farmers market, where you can purchase locally grown goods and drool over perfectly crafted homemade pies and cinnamon buns that beg your senses to take them home with you. Thought the south market is closed on Sundays, the northern market becomes an antique market from dawn until evening, giving you ample time to browse the wares of over 80 antique dealers. The St. Lawrence Market is a fixture in Toronto, and the BIA is also active, ensuring that this neighbourhood’s identity as the “historic heart of Old York” is maintained, while promoting several events throughout the year that make this whole area as lively as it’s market. Other nearby attractions of note are theatres such as the Sony Centre and the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, not to mention the numerous restaurants and retailers, some located in the market itself! Whether you love to don a chef’s hat and apron, adore neighbourhoods with a strong history and sense of community, or simply love great food regardless of who prepares it, St. Lawrence Market Lofts is the home for you!
