Are you looking for a live/work loft for you and your business?
We work as live/work loft specialists. There is no way to search for live/work lofts on realtor.ca, and the average Realtor doesn't know which building allow for live/work zoning. If you are looking for a live/work loft, condominium or townhouse contact Paul Albrighton for an updated list of units for sale.
Currently some highlight loft buildings that offer live/work status are:
1529 W 6th Ave, W6 lofts on Granville.
These were built in 1996 and offer live/work zoning. These units have an open courtyard, so guests or clients can get in the elevator or walk the stairs directly to your front door.
