A penthouse suite in the former Gillette Razor factory is on the real estate radar for $825,000. This one-bedroom at 383 Adelaide Street near Parliament offers an authentic brick and beam living space, grey concrete floors and a scenic view of the east side.
The vintage warehouse was re-imagined by Core Architects, a Toronto-based firm with a penchant for high profile projects in the heart of the city. The Liberty Lofts (not to be mistaken with Liberty Village), was converted into a four-storey complex with 46 units surrounding the original courtyard atrium in the main lobby.
The building is made up of predominantly one bedrooms and only a handful of two-bedrooms. The main space features an open layout, high ceilings and walls of exposed brick. The chandeliers hang above the wood beams and a living room fireplace warms up the otherwise industrial style.
With an abundance of trendy loft conversions in Toronto and high demand for rentals and condo ownership, this east sider has competition but also more space than a newer penthouse at 1,300 square feet. There's a bonus walk-in closest and a private balcony off the bedroom.

MOVE ON IF
You need more than one bedroom. At $825K, one might expect at least one more bedroom or a den for the asking price. The space is not ideal for young families who need additional rooms, and is instead geared towards a single or couple who can afford a small house but choose condo living instead.
