Conversion from combined office building and switching station to lofts. The lofts project was advertised to have amenities like steam rooms, a whirlpool spa, and a fully equipped exercise roof, perhaps useful for those inspired by Ninjalicious' explorations of hotel amenities.

     History
    The building started life in 1971 as a Bell Canada office and was reborn as a loft conversion. It was built originally for hundreds of employees and visitors, and included many elevators, a parking garage, as well as industrial heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems. The developer claimed that while the character of the structure would be maintained - from its original thick, industry-standard floors to columns with a radius of nearly 30 inches - it would be modernized inside and out. The new residential suites range in size from one bedroom to two bedrooms and a den. Ceilings are 10½ feet in standard units and up to 17 feet in two-storey suites on the 8th floor where the building's mechanical room was originally located.
