Downtown is renowned for its beautiful industrial lofts that tend to combine the modern with the classic design style that is so unique to the city. While this stylish loft townhouse in the neighborhood does not embrace any industrial overtones it sure charms you with its smart usage of available space and proximity to the bustling English Bay.

Decor additions like the Moooi Random Lights and the timeless Eames chairs lend a touch of class and sophistication to the space. An elegant staircase leads to the upper level that features a bedroom and bath.
