Pictures & Floor Plans (if available)
Motif Lofts and Towns is small boutique building in the Art and Design Distict offering a good selection of large townhomes.
Motif Lofts and Towns is located in hipster heaven, the Ossington strip between Dundas and Queen St W. This is the place to go for hipster chic; resto-lounges, eateries with quirky names, bars, art galleries, studios and one of a kind shopping.
The developer, Reserve Properties has given the buildinga neighbourhood feel; five storey building in the loft area, small number of units and ground floor retail in keeping with the area. There’s a strong team behind this condo, II by IV for interiors and RAW Design as the architect.
This building is small, 23 lofts, 4 of which are 2 storey lofts with roof top terraces and 9 townhomes with3 bedrooms running along Rebecca Street and Givins Avenue. Some of the townhomes go up to 2405 sq ft and there’s one that is just over 3,000 sq ft. I like seeing larger options built for young families that want to stay downtown or downsizers.
Suite sizes start at 699 sq ft for lofts, with terraces, balconies or Juliet balconies. The lofts have 10 ft ceilings and the townhouses have 9 ft ceilings. The finishes are a bit more raw in the lofts: ceilings are exposed concrete in the lofts and drywall smooth in the townhomes. No ugly popcorn ceilings. All the terraces include a gas bbq connection. All the cabinetry is Scavollini imported from Italy, even the bathroom.
In the kitchens, the Scavolini Kitchen cabinetry comes with a choice of glossy white, neutral, glossy lipstick glossy red or electric blue or the traditional espresso. More standard finishes include: porcelain tiles in the bathroom with low flow toilets, quartz or stone countertops, full vanity width mirrors. There’s prefinished hardwood engineered floors throughout, even the bedrooms.
Motif Lofts and Towns is a good alternative option for a buyer looking to live in Art and Design District area but not deal with the headache of owning an old home.
