About this loft

The Printing Factory is ideal for residents looking to live luxuriously in a converted property with plenty of history.
Occupied since 2010, The Printing Factory was originally, you guessed it, a printing factory built back in 1913. The company name of ‘Rolph Clark Stone’ still rests above the building’s front entryway, atop the original brickwork and arched stone doorways. The 3 storey brick factory was left mostly intact during its conversion, although the renovation resulted in the addition of a central tower made of of metal and glass, plus townhomes in the building’s back section.
In addition to the building’s contemporary designs and unique layout, 201 Carlaw features several amenities for residents to enjoy, including communal barbecues, garage parking for residents and guests, concierge and security services, a conference room, and a party room. 201 Carlaw Avenue is also welcoming to any prospective buyers with pets.
The central tower that rests on the original factory reaches to 8 storeys tall, and the building as a whole holds 256 units composed of studios, one or two bedroom suites, and 3 bedroom townhomes. The homes range in size from around 450 square feet, to just over 1,550 square feet. Units in the 3-storey podium boast that authentic hard loft aesthetic - meaning more aspects like exposed brick, ductwork, and concrete beams — while suites in the 8 storey tower are soft lofts with fresh wooden floors.
Layouts at The Printing Factory are well thought out, with developers paying special attention to making use of the large floor-to-ceiling ceiling windows. Open-concept living and dining spaces allow plenty of light into the units, and are perfect for entertaining.
