Lofts are a very hot commodity but there are two types. Hard lofts are historic industrial or commercial buildings that have been converted into residential units. Because of their history, they are more desirable and can be difficult to acquire. Hard lofts often have high ceilings, exposed brick, ductwork, and large windows. As a large settlement in the past, Edmonton has potential for hard lofts if developers decide to repurpose the buildings.
