Soft Lofts in Ottawa
Glasgow is a soft loft. Soft Lofts are new builds designed to offer the space and style of a hard loft. The demand for hard lofts far exceeds availability and the costs associated with these one-of-a-kind spaces, place them out of reach for many buyers. Here is where the Soft Loft comes to life. Builders, eager to fill the demand for open-concept spaces, adopted the term loft and applied it to units which outside of the conversion elements, fit the design and style criteria of a loft.
More commonly found in low and mid-rise buildings, upper floors in high rise buildings may also have units that have been given a Soft Loft treatment. The popularity of the Soft Loft is growing along with demand for higher ceilings, open floor plans and unique design elements. Luckily supply is high since the units are created with new builds, there is no limit on how many can hit a given market. However, due to the low supply Hard lofts are more likely to retain their value over time and suffer less vulnerability to market shifts.
Expect to find a wide range of styles. Many units will mimic Hard loft design features, while the external building may be represented in a more modern style. Many of the architectural components in a Hard loft may differ and so too do the elements of a Soft Loft. The expanse of options can make choosing a Soft Loft more difficult, the lower prices will surely ease that burden. You’ll find completely open concept units, partially walled bedrooms and open concept overlooks sleeping quarters. Large windows will be easy to find feature as they lower the construction costs for the building. Soft lofts may also still include features such as exposed brick, polished concrete floors, wood beams and other industrial elements.
One of the biggest bonuses of Soft Lofts is its inclusion in building projects that compete for the best amenities. New build condos have to offer a wide and exciting range of amenities to attract potential buyers. Finding a soft loft in a building that also has concierge, party rooms, pools, full-scale gym and rooftop BBQs is not uncommon. They are also not restricted by any existing structure. A soft loft can be built into any design or building, offering more options for style and layout. Developers will sometimes use the mixing of these elements. They design multiple building complexes, combining Condo units, Soft Lofts and Townhomes into a single project.
