'Sunday School Lofts' is a condo being built in Toronto's historic Greektown that incorporates the architecture of the exist building on the site: the Temple Baptist Church, built in 1925.

When compared to the condos being built across metropolises today, early 19th century religious architecture is vastly different. While most condos take advantage of vertical space, buildings like the Temple Baptist Church are comparatively short, with grandly arched windows and high, vaulted ceilings. The Sunday School Lofts development keeps many of these classic design elements in place throughout the facade and front lobby of the building.

Since the building is considered a historically important site, the Sunday School Lofts project is being overseen by ERA Architects, a Toronto firm that maintains heritage buildings across the city.
