The building was originally built in the early 1900s, and was once used as a warehouse and commercial space. It was converted for residential use in 1996, when the developer rehabilitated a portion of the old building, and built a newly constructed portion on the east side of the building.

This particular loft, unit 601, is in the heritage portion of the building. The unit itself was taken down to the studs in 2015, and completely redesigned with an emphasis on retaining the old character materials.

The unit includes one parking and one storage locker. The building at 27 Alexander offers a large common rooftop patio, and allow pets and rentals. The listing is provided by Paul Albrighton of RE/MAX Crest Realty Westside.
