The CharacterWe mean it when we say this building is absolutely huge! Taking up a whole city block, this building used to house the Simpsons and Sears department stores. In this way, one might think of the Merchandise Lofts as more of a community than just a building. The building features an urban rooftop garden, a lap pool, a barbeque terrace, recreation and relaxation facilities, and even a rooftop dog walking area.
Holy ceilings, Batman! Dramatic 12-foot ceilings define this space, and is one of the major selling points. You’ll also find granite countertops, polished and sealed concrete or pre-finished European beech strip hardwood, maple cabinets, barn doors, and industrial wall sconces.
There are all different kinds of loft styles in this building, thanks to its size, created by different teams of designers. Combine that with amazing views of the city, and you’ve got a pretty persuasive package for a hip, urban living.
What We Love
We love the fact that this place feels like a fortress. There is just so much history, and it feels so safe and secure. The lofts are unique, visually stunning, and there are so many amenities it can be hard to keep count. It’s like its very own neighbourhood!
What We Don't
The Merchandise Lofts are very close to Ryerson University, and the student population in this building is quite high. Sometimes it can have a bit of a “party vibe” to it, which can be a bit intrusive for older couples of young families living here.
