Live in the newest loft to come to Queen West! 2 Gladstone by Streetcar Developments is a boutique mid rise building with only 55 suites! I’ve just listed a 615 sq.ft. one bedroom unit on the top floor, that’s right – penthouse baby, or rather… “pentLoft”!
It’s a corner unit with expansive views of the downtown high-rises from one window and Liberty Village and lake views from the other! Nine foot concrete ceilings add to the open concept feel of the loft. From your first steps into the loft, you’ll notice the extra detail my client personally added to the space. Wood work frames the hallway into the living space. From there pot lights and restored barnwood accent the walls in the TV area and bedroom. Pot lights were also installed to top off the loft!
2 Gladstone is located right on the Queen West strip. The loft is located on the 8th floor, away from the traffic and noise of the street. The building is neighbours with The Gladstone Hotel along with several other bars, galleries, and boutique clothing stores. TTC is litterally steps from the front door. Parking and locker are also included. We’re asking $1,900 per month with a minimum of a years commitment!

We all know the importance of having concentration and focus while driving…but with all the cranes and holes popping up in the City, it’s often tempting to get distracted!
As was the case on drive down Dovercourt the other day. Just as the road merges into Sudbury St, sits a half empty hole that get’s bigger by the day! My curiosity got the better of me as I pulled over to snap a few shots of the excavation at the Art Condos construction site. They’ve been diligently working away for since the start of they year, first demolishing the building, then shoring and now excavating.

A trend is starting to form for boutique style condos going up in West Queen West. Art along with 2 Gladstone both experienced great launches and because of this, can expect pretty accurate build times. Projects like these make the preconstruction process even more enjoyable for purchasers because they can plan their move times with more accuracy! For those who looking to buy in either building, units are still available!
One of the first preconstruction projects I started promoting on SavelBlogs was 2 Gladstone by Streetcar Developments. Sales started back in October of 2009 and to this day, I’m still getting emails from interested purchasers on it. It was one of the few projects to launch in 09 and with only 54 units, it didn’t take long for them to sell. Fast forward to 2011 and 2 Gladstone is back on the blog!
In early 2010 they demolished the existing buildings and by early spring the had dug a hole large enough to pour the foundation. From there it’s been nothing but up as they’ve already surpassed ground level and have started on the second floor! Estimated move-in is scheduled for October 2011 and with only 7 more floors to go, they might just build this one on time!
It’s hard to get a good indication on what the first level looks like as most of it is covered up, but once cladding starts I’ll be back to take some more photos… In the mean time, click on the thumbnails below to see the progress thus far.
While out on Queen West I spotted a few other sites “ripe for development” which is great news if you missed your chance to buy at 2 Gladstone. If Queen West is calling you…call me (or send me and email) and I’ll help you call it home!
(try saying that 5 times fast)
Yesterday I took to the streets of Trinity and Eastern to show exactly what the area has to offer…incase you missed it, check it out here! Today I’m taking it a step closer to home and looking at the features Trinity Lofts will offer. The 8 story building (shown above) will have a total of 81 lofts plus 2 town homes. Similar to SYNC and 2 Gladstone, units will be 9ft high with exposed concrete ceilings (except areas with bulkheads, as required to accommodate architectural, structural, mechanical or OBC conditions). Floors will be pre-finished engineered hardwood throughout, except for tiled area as per plan.
Expect contemporary kitchens with granite or quartz countertops, under cabinet lighting, porcelain subway tile backsplash with an under mount sink! They’ve stayed away from the frivolous amenities and kept it simple with an equipped exercise room, furnished terrace with shared BBQ, dog wash room, a bike share system and an auto share parking space. Parking is available but is only available on units over $310,900 BUT with the TTC up the street and the various transportation sharing programs in the building, it’s not such a bad thing. Also without a car (or parking) you may actually be able to qualify for more of a mortgage as you’ll have less financial commitments hindering approval!
From Thursday April 30th to Wednesday May 5th, they’ll be accepting work sheets from Realtors who’ve been invited to sell at the project. For this early launch, roughly 55 units are being released so buyers are encouraged to pick 3 units of choice. On Thursday May 6th, they’ll be confirming successful worksheet and scheduling times to sign the agreement of purchase and sale for Saturday May 8th (purchasers must be present for signing!!!) The deposit structure is $5,000 on signing with the balance of 5% in 30 days, 5% in 90 days, 5% in 180 days and 5% on occupancy. Parking is $30,000 for units $310,900 and higher, with locker/bike lockers at $5,000 and $2,000 respectively.
I do have floor plans and price lists but am not emailing them out, I’d much rather meet in person to better explain the process and go over the details (plus usually it’s just other Realtors trying to get info for their blogs/site… as much as I love them, they tend to not hire me to represent them). There’s tons of amaaaaaaazing cafes in the Distillery where we can meet to discuss buying a unit at Trinity…feel free to call or email to set up an appointment, I’d love to help!
Floor plans and prices for Trinity Lofts have now been released…instead of yapping about prices and layouts, I decided to shoot a short video showing the lofts advantageous location to 51 Division, Distillery District, King East and Corktown to name a view. From today until Thursday they’ll be accepting worksheets, if you’d like to call Trinity Lofts home…call me. I’d love to help!
The Streetcars on the move again…Streetcar Developments that is! A few posts back, I shared some details about the lofts and in the coming week I’ll have even more! Floor plans, prices and of course renderings should all be coming shortly. As they’ve done with past projects, Realtors who sold for them will have one of the first opportunities to sell to their clients before the general launch. According to their latest mail out “TRINITY will offer the unique high-end designer finishes that past Streetcar followers have come to appreciate: 9′ smooth ceilings, modern kitchens and bathrooms with stone counters throughout, stainless steel appliances and pre-engineered wood flooring.”
Stay tuned for more updates during the week…feel free to contact me if you’d like to be part of the launch!
I do a lot of my business in the core of the City, right in the thick of the hustle, bustle and my personal favorite…the traffic. Once the weekend business is over, I prefer to hang out in the quieter parts of downtown…. primarily, The Cadillac Lounge!
It’s an eclectic place in Parkdale just off the busy Queen West Strip (1296 Queen St W). You’ll know you’ve found the Lounge once you see its life sized Cadillac hanging from the wall and the neon pink sign lighting up the street! Guests are greeted by a “Maitre’D” who looks fresh off the set from Grease. The red brick walls are covered in memorabilia from the likes of Johnny Cash, Elivs and Bruce Springsteen to name a few. Once you’ve found a seat, be sure to ask the servers (often resembling a 60′s pin-up girl) for the menu! I go for the live music…but stay for the food (onion rings, a caddy burger and the odd drink …or 3). There’s tons of space outback including a massive outdoor/indoor patio! Inside, the show rocks on with live bands every week.
The crowd at the Cadillac matches the feel of the place. Every week it’s something new. One week a massive white poodle which doubled as a seeing eye dog made its way through the crowd while the next we saw former WWF (or WWE, I don’t know what they prefer) superstars Luke “Bushwacker” and The Honkey Tonk Man. All the elements of the place come together to give a cool down south feel much different that your standard downtown club!
If you’ve ever thought about going down to Cadillac, this Saturday (April 24th) would be a great time to stop by. They’ll be holding their “First Annual Francesco Grosso Type 1 Diabetes Fundraiser”! Starting at 8, it’s going to be a night of great times, awesome music, and incredible raffle prizes! Cover is $20 advance or at the door with all proceeds going to the Diabetes Clinic at Sick Kids Hospital.
So come on out for a roccccccccccccccckin Saturday night…see you at the Caddy!
