Foundry Lofts is one of the grandest and most stunning lofts in the Davenport Village classified as a Toronto Heritage Property. This authentic conversion of a 19th Century Train Factory was occupied by Canada Foundry Co. Ltd., which built electric locomotives.
A contemporary lobby with original exposed brick leads into the courtyard (see photos), off of which there are indoor amenities such as a fitness centre and recreation room.
Loft suites feature 19 foot ceilings, prefinished hardwood floors, original exposed brick walls and large warehouse windows. Kitchens have maple cabinetry, granite countertops and halogen track lights, while bathrooms feature frameless glass shower stalls and stone countertops.
The Foundry Loft suites also have energy-efficient heat and air-conditioning systems. It’s been classified as a “Green Condominium” by the city of Toronto. The monthly maintenance fees are much lower than average at approximately 25¢ per square foot.
What makes The Foundry unique is the 16,000 s.f atrium upon which most of the units enter. The atrium is the remains of the original manufacturing portion of The Foundry. The floor of the atrium is raised, under which lies the resident & visitor parking. It was on the floor of this parking area that the track originally sat that would carry the train through the building, as a crane high above dropped parts onto it. One can imagine the process taking place as one sits in the massive space that is the atrium.
