147 Boston-new Loft apartment April 2020
This transformation was a lot of fun. When we gutted this space we fell in love with the character of the 1920s brick walls. We captured 2ft of space from above the ceiling tiles and after removing the interior walls it opened up to a 20' x 25' huge open space with 12 ft sprawling ceilings. We found car engine gaskets from the previous businesses, metal brackets on the ceiling hinted at a big garage door that existed back in the day. Overall great bones for an Uber Loft space. The reno took over 6 months. To do it right we installed spray foam insulation and hydronic floors into the exposed concrete. Jeff's passion for Hard Industrial Lofts really shows through on the brand new apartment. The brick walls are perfect for mounting a bicycle, in fact a bracket is already installed into the brick. Exposed spiral duct work for future A/C Frosted glass appliance garage in backsplash hides the kitchen appliances tidily.. Can't wait to introduce the new tenants to the latest new LOFT in Leslieville.
