Volta Lofts is a boutique building which sits on the former site of the TTC’s Beresford Substation, which once powered trolleys along Annette Street.
The Power of Attraction
From the moment you enter Volta Lofts, you’ll feel its energy. This is a place where opposites attract, modern meets traditional and anything is possible. Named after the inventor of the electric battery, Alessandro Volta, this address was once home to Beresford Substation, which powered the TTC trolleys on Annette Avenue. Just steps from a wide array of shops, restaurants and galleries, this boutique building is close to everything you need, and provides the perfect place to recharge your batteries afterwards.
Less is More
The Bauhaus movement redefined architectural beauty. Built on the notion that less is more, it did away with excess ornamentation, introducing the world to the splendour of clean lines. This focus on simplicity and functionality is woven into Volta Lofts’ DNA. Iconic limestone, heritage brick and glazed floor-to-ceiling windows blend tradition with modernist architecture. Artifacts from the original Beresford Substation decorate the lobby, giving a nod to local heritage. And rooftop solar panels work in tandem with insulated concrete forms to create an energy-efficient home that’s good for the planet as well as the pocketbook.
