Printers Row
Printers Row is an historically significant area in Chicago's loop district, with many fine architectural buildings, used originally in the printing trade. PRINTERS ROW in Toronto is a conversion of an existing vintage architectural gem originally designed by W.F. Carmichael, Architect, in 1911 for the Bell Telephone Company world headquarters, and most recently used in the printing trade as ABSO Blueprints. The present loft conversion creates a row of six double stacked two and three storey loft spaces, all facing south and all opening out into private roof gardens or terraces. Retained features of the massively overdesigned original structure include 18" thick terracotta and concrete floors acoustically separating units.
