Condo of the Week: $850,000 for a two-level unit in the Boiler Factory Lofts on Queen Street East

Condo of the Week: 189 Queen Street East, Unit 2

Address: 189 Queen Street East, Unit 2
Neighbourhood: Moss Park
Agent: Erica Reddy, Royal LePage Signature Realty, Brokerage
Price: $849,000

The Place: A one-bedroom unit on two levels with original oak floors, brick walls and exposed wooden beams. It’s one of 11 condos in the Boiler Factory Lofts on Queen Street East.

Bragging Rights: Interior designer Roy Banse had free rein to revamp the unfinished space and the result was recently shown off on an episode of Steven and Chris (begins at the 2:20 mark).

Big Selling Point: Many of the fancy furnishings are included, such as the custom king-sized walnut bed platform and floating side tables in the bedroom, as well as the televisions and bar stools.

Possible Deal Breaker: The frosted glass bathroom preserves the openness of the lower level, but will likely turn off a few traditionalists who think walls should be opaque.

By the Numbers:
• $849,000
• $679.81 in monthly maintenance fees
• 1,800 square feet
• 2 bathrooms
• 1 bedroom
• 1 private rooftop terrace
• 1 built-in Miele coffee system
• 1 wine fridge

    Looks great! However, parking’s not included, lower level is a basement, and there’s only 4 windows and they all face a parking spot (http://goo.gl/maps/1BQMG ).
