This is a unique loft conversion that is coming soon to the old Weston Bakery.
Wonder Condos is a new condo by Graywood Developments and Alterra in Toronto’s Leslieville neighbourhood. This new pre-construction project is located at the north side of Eastern Avenue, between Logan and Booth Avenues. The occupancy date is tentatively set for 2023.
Leslieville is one of the city’s most cherished neighbourhoods, the waterfront and a wealth of local eating and shopping options. Popular with families and professionals alike, it’s been called the “brunch capital” of Toronto.
The development proposes the adaptive re-use of the existing Weston Bakery, a historic building that is no longer active. Featuring a combination of one-of-a-kind lofts, chic condos, and towns, it will be a project that complements the surrounding district while setting the standard for new developments in the area.
Originally a four-storey factory-style building, the development will add an additional five storeys, ultimately resulting in a nine-storey mid-rise. The building will be constructed in a U-shape, adding wings to the east and west portions of the site.
In total, Wonder Condos is expected to house 290 hard lofts, soft lofts, condos and towns ranging from 448 to 1,654 square feet. These units will be available in the following layouts; bachelor units, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom. The factory’s high-ceilings lend itself well to desirable loft-style condominium units, while a selection of two-storey townhomes are proposed as well, flanking Booth and Logan Avenues and accessible directly from the street.
Over 13,000 square feet of amenity space will be incorporated into the project, comprised of 6,630 square feet of outdoor space on the building’s eighth floor, which will connect to the same amount of indoor amenity space on the ninth floor. A smaller zone for indoor amenities will also be included on the building’s ground floor, along with some commercial space. A three-level underground parking garage will house 315 parking spots for vehicles and 317 for bicycles.
The development will pay homage to an iconic piece of architecture, while creating a unique and compelling combination of old and new design. High ceilings, brick elements, a desirable rooftop terrace and a range of housing styles will make this a highly-coveted place to call home.
