The Details

An Artist in Residence

An artist in residence. This modern, concrete loft reduced to its bare essentials evokes creative, contemporary & pragmatic persuasions. Raw & minimalist in nature. A lesson in living with less while experiencing more. Its intimate visual language illustrates an uncluttered & airy approach. Dramatic subtleties include 14-foot ceilings, black framed floor-to-ceiling warehouse windows, private sleeping chambers, enviable millwork throughout, exposed ducts & exceptional West-Facing light. This secluded residence spans 2,000 square feet over two floors, featuring extraordinary details, finishes & space optimization. The size and scale permit full-sized living & dining and walls begging art collectors & lighting aficionados to show their artistic range. The culinary heart of the home, its kitchen is outfitted with a slated blonde fabrication, Scandi-style cabinetry, a secret storage pantry, a wine fridge and easy five-person in-house seating. Suite 504’s interior lends a versatile & design-forward aesthetic, including a lofty 2nd-floor primary suite with integrated wardrobes (laundry chute included), offering practicality for our sartorialists without conceding style, plus a generous two-person ensuite including a double shower, dual vanity & deep soaker tub. The main floor discreetly shelters a guest suite with a Murphy bed, a private office replete with bespoke millwork and a third bedroom for babies, toddlers or your Gen Z’s alike. Extras include an outdoor balcony with BBQ gas line, a separate laundry room with a sink, an underground parking space fitted with an EV charger & a bonus storage locker! Forget your long commutes – situated on two priority streetcar routes, between two planned Ontario Line stations and effortless access to the Don Valley Parkway, Gardiner Expressway, and Bayview Extension! An easy 2.5-kilometre walk or bike to the Financial District plus the trendy neighbourhoods of Leslieville, Distillery and Cabbagetown are all within reach!

Residing within Toronto’s architectural heritage, your home at 90 Sumach embodies a remarkable history. Originally built as a warehouse in 1956, the building soon became the design centre for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s television era in 1958. CBC’s archives, studios, rehearsal spaces, and workshops have thrived here for decades. Renowned figures such as Glenn Gould, Jim Henson, and Lorne Michaels once worked within these walls. Today, it is home to a vibrant community of artists, designers, and other creative professionals. It was converted into hard lofts by Sorbara Development Group in the mid-1990s and now houses 109 lofts over 8-storeys.

Your home should tell a story of who you are and be a collection of what you love.

The Neighbourhood

The neighbourhood

Welcome To Corktown

Tucked away in the heart of Toronto’s Lower East Side lies Corktown, a dynamic enclave known for its vibrant culinary scene, lush green spaces, and a sense of community peppered with local shops, markets and eateries. The neighbourhood bridges the hustle and bustle of Toronto’s downtown core and the relaxed pace of Riverdale, Leslieville, and Cabbagetown to the West.

Among the standouts are Corktown Commons Park, the historic Distillery District, Brickworks, Pam McConnell Aquatic Centre, local farmers’ markets, and the shops and eateries of King and Queen.

Circumventing predictable descriptors reveals a dynamic landscape where the lively energy of a metropolitan existence blends with the comforts of a real-deal neighbourhood. Corktown offers an eclectic mix of restaurants catering to various palates. Each eatery, unique in its offerings, showcases the neighbourhood’s diversity. From avant-garde gastronomic experiences to comfort food that warms the soul, Corktown’s dining scene is a testament to Toronto’s multicultural ethos. Local hot spots include Gusto 501, White Lilly Diner (Michelin Bib Gourmand), Bonjour Brioche, Lady Marmalade, Impact Kitchen, Rosebud, Tabule and Sukho Thai.

The coffee culture in Corktown is as robust as the espresso served in its numerous cafes. Darkhorse Coffee and Boxcar Social are local favourites, standing out with an artisanal approach to coffee-making.

For local provisions, Roselle Desserts and Blackbird Bakery satisfy your baking needs; Butchers of Distinction is, as the name suggests, Hooked carries the day’s fresh catch, and Leslieville Cheese Market reflects a commitment to quality.

Green spaces and dog parks are the heart and soul of Corktown, offering residents a verdant escape from the urban sprawl. Paths wind through this part of the city, inviting joggers, cyclists, and dog walkers to revel in the beauty of nature within the city’s confines, including Corktown Commons, Riverdale Park and the multi-purpose trails running along the Don River.

The neighbourhood’s commitment to health and wellness is evident in its plethora of fitness centres and leisure activities. Whether it’s yoga in the park or a high-intensity workout in a local gym, Corktown offers myriad ways to stay fit. Trendy studios include Lift Corktown, Body & Soul Fitness and RND Athletics.

Farmers’ markets, such as the Underpass Market on Thursdays and the vibrant Brickworks on Saturdays, are community staples in Corktown. These markets offer fresh, local produce and serve as social hubs where neighbours meet, chat, and bond over a shared love for quality and sustainability. The Leslieville market, a Greenwood Sunday affair, adds to this abundance of local commerce and community engagement. Additionally, the local shops in Corktown are part of the neighbourhood’s hidden discoveries. From the Butchers of Distinction, the Leslieville Cheese Market or the sweetness of Soma Chocolate, these establishments reflect the commitment to quality and artisanal craftsmanship in this neck of the woods!

Transit in Corktown is a well-oiled machine, ensuring seamless connectivity to the rest of Toronto. The efficiency and coverage of the transit system make the neighbourhood ideal for those who seek the convenience of urban living without the hassle of long commutes. It includes easy access to King & Queen Streetcar, the Bayview Extension, Rosedale Valley Road, DVP, and the Gardiner Expressway. Bonus? The planned Ontario Line and Corktown station will be at Parliament and Front Street East!

With its blend of urban sophistication, community warmth and rich architectural heritage, Corktown stands out as a microcosm of Toronto’s diversity and vibrancy – a place everyone and anyone could effortlessly call home (we certainly could)!

Originally Built As A Warehouse In 1956, The Building Soon Became The Design Centre For The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Television Era In 1958. Cbc’s Archives, Studios, Rehearsal Spaces, And Workshops Have Thrived Here For Decades.
