The Bartlett Loft Towns were one of the first authentic loft conversions in the city, however today they read as anything but amateur. Rather, the lofts at 6 Bartlett Avenue defined originality and innovation before Toronto even knew the protocol for a successful hard loft conversion. Thanks to developer Allan D. Gordon Associates and their innovative foresight, the Bartlett Loft Towns serve as inspiration for redevelopments of defunct spaces with so much hidden potential. The developer’s triumph with the Bartlett Loft Towns was even recognized by the province, as it was honoured with an Ontario Renew Award in 1985. The project left a lasting impression on Toronto’s real estate market, as today loft conversions are the most desired style of condo in the city.
