Back in January, Curbed wrote about the Lanehouses on Bartlett, a cool-and-unusual project near Bloor and Dufferin streets that's converting an underused industrial building in a laneway into 13 loft-style homes and three flats. Sales have been brisk for this one-of-a-kind development; just three units are left (all three are two-bedroom townhomes, in the factory building).
Lanehouses on Bartlett is one of the first laneway-housing projects in Toronto, and if it's typical of the kind of creative thinking and respect for location that's possible, it could be the start of a whole wave of adaptive-reuse development in the city. In the meantime, let's look at some floor plans, and some pictures of the model home.
