Residence 501 at 155 Dalhousie St. lives inside a piece of Toronto history. This 12-storey building was formerly the Simpson’s department store warehouse and later owned by Sears Canada. It was eventually converted into the Merchandise Lofts with suites boasting high ceilings, concrete flooring and large windows. It is situated in the heart of downtown, just minutes from Yonge and Dundas Square and across the street from the Ryerson University campus.
Unit 501 has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and is listed for $1.389 million. It spans approximately 1,760-square-feet and is a short walk away from Yonge Street. Some amenities the building offers include a fitness centre, rooftop deck, indoor pool and more, along with a Metro grocery store on the ground level.
You’re immediately met with 10-foot ceilings upon entering the foyer.
Sliding doors just off the foyer lead to this three-piece bathroom complete with a glassed-in shower.
Down the hallway is the combined kitchen, living and dining area with 12-foot ceilings. Warehouse-style windows allow tons of light to flood in to this open concept and spacious area.
An open wall partially divides the living space from the kitchen and doubles as a breakfast bar. Elegant pendant lighting accentuates the high ceilings in this space.
The custom Italian kitchen is designed with sleek cabinetry and high-end appliances. The modern esthetic features clean lines, dark cabinets and integrated appliances.
Bright walls and high ceilings open up the primary bedroom. The condo has a split floor plan, providing privacy for residents living in each bedroom.
The bedroom has a walk-in closet with custom built-ins.
It connects to a four-piece ensuite bathroom designed with simple tiles and white walls.
The second bedroom can be entered from the foyer and the kitchen. It features built-in shelving that reaches the ceiling and a nook in the corner with a desk.
