The neighbourhood.Beaconsfield is popular with members of Toronto's arts community who have gradually migrated westward along Queen Street to the unique and funky houses and studios found in this neighbourhood. The colourful shopping district on Dundas Street West features an eclectic mix of Portuguese markets, established cafes, and emerging restaurants. Queen Street West is home to a mix of boutique clothing stores, art galleries, and artisanal restaurants and bakeries. In the day, residents can be found biking and jogging in Trinity-Bellwoods Park, and at night, the scene comes alive in local haunts like The Drake Hotel, the Gladstone Hotel, Bellwoods Brewery, and bars along Ossington Avenue.
The Argyle Lofts sit on the former site of the Ideal Bread Factory, constructed in 1919 by Montreal architect Sydney Comber. The 5-storey building is an excellent example of Edwardian classical style applied to an industrial building. Additions to the north along Dovercourt in 1923 and 1933 were also designed by Comber. In use as a bakery until 1957, this building was converted to residential lofts in 2007. The factory clock still remains above the front entrance. Original architectural and engineering drawings for the building can be found in the Toronto Archives.
