We’ve been following Q Loft since it was first announced last year. From the sales launch to demolition to excavation, we’ve been there through it all. And now that the Royal Queen Developments project has moved into a new phase of construction, naturally we were on the scene to capture the magic.
A crane was erected at the job site last weekend, marking a new stage of construction for the 8 storey, 70 unit Q Loft. It won’t be long now before we see the Tact Architecture-designed building rising from the ground. Read more
You can’t deny that it’s very satisfying to see construction well underway on a new development. Especially when it’s one we’ve been following as long as Q Loft.
The West Queen West development is well into construction and the sales office (located right beside the job site) is now open by appointment only. Read more
We took a stroll down to the Q Loft construction site today to see if there was any action to photograph and, boy, we were not disappointed.
The old Q Loft sales centre was torn down over the last two weeks and the construction crew is further prepping the site for excavation. The new sales centre is conveniently located only a few steps away from the site at 376 Dufferin Street so be sure to swing by if you haven’t already.
We’ve had our eye on the Queen West development for awhile now and it’s great to see it moving smoothly into the construction phase. Read more
When you step onto West Queen Street West, something magical happens. The neighbourhood gives you a special vibe that is quite rare in a city full of unique areas.
We’ve always said that Queen West is the city’s go-to cool neighbourhood and it’s been expanding west into Parkdale with ultra-hip clothing shops, bars and cafes popping up everywhere. Q Loft, the new project by Royal Queen Developments, are definitely capitalizing on this expansion westward and are betting that this area will stay cool for quite some time.
That’s the funny thing about “cool”. Some areas don’t stay cool for long, but others can keep their cool for decades (or more!). In our expert opinion West Queen West falls into the latter category.
We’re thinking Q Loft made the right call, especially after hearing about the new organic farmers market that will be opening next to the community centre in 2012. Nothing beats fresh vegetables and with this farmers market only steps away from Q Loft, your vegetables will pretty much be the freshest. Read more
