81A Front Street East is a boutique pre-Confederation building that dates back to 1857. Upon its conversion to residential units, the building has managed to retain most of its historic features, making it one of the city's most distinctive and sought-after buildings.
St. Lawrence Market was named the world's best food market by National Geographic.
"On Saturday the market comes alive. On that day, the North Market (otherwise abandoned or rented for special events) is filled with local farmers selling all things organic, natural and, above else, local. For those who prescribe to the eat-local movement, there's probably not a better place to stock up than here. I shop here specifically for Ontario grown fruit and vegetables but it's also a good source for fresh homemade pies, cinammon buns, bread, bacon, elk and venison, cheese, nuts and a whole lot more."
81A Front Street East is also walking distance to the historic Distillery Distric, which boasts a myriad of specialty and boutique stores, restaurants, bars, and art installations. The neighbourhood is especially lively during the winter, when the Distillery District hosts its highly popular holiday market and Festival of Lights.
Transit. The St. Lawrence Market Lofts boast a transit score of 100, with multiple transit options easily accessible from the building. Only four blocks away from Union Station, 81A Front Street East is minutes away from downtown Toronto, the Entertainment District, the Financial District, and many major stations along Line 1, not to mention the GO Station and the 504 King streetcar.
