Crushing On: Chocolate Co. Loft in Queen West

Chocolate Co

Here are four words – Hard Loft, Queen West. Did I get your attention?

With a growing number of condo developments in Toronto, buyers have become tired of the same-old glass-cubes-in-the-sky, and seek out properties that stand out from the rest. They demand an urban space that is as unique as the buyer. But it’s not just about the space. We know that life extends far beyond the walls of your home, so we have to put thought into where it is as much as what it is.

trinitybellwoodsThis 2-bedroom and den, 1073-square-foot loft, hit the market last week. I’ve been promoting the listing together with the Urbaneer team and I can’t stop swooning over it.

Located at 955 Queen St. West, just across the street from Trinity-Bellwoods park, the green jewel of the neighbourhood,  The Chocolate Co. Lofts was once home to the Patterson Chocolate Factory before it was converted in 2005 by Plazacorp Developments. Originally two buildings, which now offer hard lofts, were united with a six-storey addition of soft lofts, together offering 144 units. There is no surprises here. You’ll get exactly what you can expect from a great loft conversion – large windows, soaring ceiling heights, exposed ductwork and wood beam posts.

Loft #505 is the perfect combination of urban-cool and sensibly practical, starting with the layout. The split-bedroom floor plan makes this space very livable, especially for a couple, and dare I say, even kids? The den separates the master bedroom from the living space and makes a wonderful home office. There is no shortage of storage space here either, especially with that pantry off the main hallway. it really gives a ‘house-like’ vibe, don’t you think? 


This corner unit faces north-west and the two juliette-balcony windows look out to the charming store-fronts of Queen West and leafy canopy of the park behind. Be there in the afternoon light and you’ll fall in love.
