The Derby Lofts, Toronto
393 King St. E., Corktown (1998)
The Derby was the first ‘New York style’ two-storey lofts built in the city. The building was designed by Dermott Sweeny with cutting-edge design elements that are still relevant and incorporated in new condo developments 30 years later. The building design was simply “ahead of its time”.
Under the Derby Development Co. brand, Canlight developed this four-storey building of red brick and huge paneled windows into 26 units featuring open concept layouts, striking mezzanines overlooking the lower level living area, curved staircases, and private rooftop terraces.
