The Acclaimed Cube Lofts, Motif project reflects a recent shift in the residential sector that located in College Street, Toronto, was designed by raw design. As part of the transition of Toronto’s Ossington strip, from a forgotten byway to one of the hottest bar-hopping gastro dining streets in Toronto, a former electrical distribution warehouse is being replaced by Motif Lofts and Towns. The construct will be a boutique mixed-use development, consisting of a handful of contemporary loft apartments, prestige retail space at grade level and a series of live-work townhomes.
Motif represents part of growing alternative to high-rise living – decidedly urban and strengthening the sense of community for new and existing residents. Rather than wholesale replacement of the existing fabric with a high level of development, it builds on the character of the context, adding density while preserving character.
