The Creed Building at 295 Davenport Rd. is Annex-Yorkville's industrial meets chic lofts. The owners are asking $795,000 for this two-storey unit with one-bedroom, two bathrooms and one car parking. Converted from a 1930s fur warehouse, the building was redeveloped in 1998 into 19 modern lofts. Creed's Fur Ltd. was a woman's speciality store of high-end fashions going bankrupt in the late 1980s. The lofts at Davenport and Bedford features a historic plaque outside the building explaining the unique property:
Designed by architect H.G. Duerr to store furs, this building was constructed following the widening of Davenport Road in the 1930s. Its horizontal orientation and curved façade are characteristic of the Streamlined Moderne style. After Creed Furs sold the building in 1988, renovations were completed and it was converted to residential lofts. · On the Market Archives [Curbed Toronto]
