The common thread among units in the Rebman building appears to be the usual soaring loft ceilings, enormous windows … and the ability to completely customize your space. The two other lofts we have featured could themselves not be more different from each other. This third unit goes in a completely different direction, combining a cosy home with decidedly industrial fixtures.

Unit 4G features the same open layout with walls of windows facing south and east. Customization is immediately apparent, and not just from the distinctive red piping. Current owners have completely soundproofed the unit. The listing promises not a peep of noise from busy streets below. The unit’s single bedroom has a wall of custom-fit wardrobes. The bathroom has been built for two and includes a full laundry setup. A workspace could easily be upgraded to a studio for two.


The Rebman building's location will give owners prime entrée to the Rail Park, should it ever be built. The unit also includes a parking space in a heated garage.
