About Us

OUR MISSION

At LOFTY we are passionate about breathing new life into each one of our uniquely renovated properties and providing our guests with an experience that exceeds their expectations. Our designs have been inspired by each location’s own characteristics. We are delighted to offer our guests authentic Kingston charm while staying in the heart of the downtown core.

Where it all began…

The concept for LOFTY Living was born within the walls of the historic 19th century church where our 10 Loft suites are now located. Originally built in 1864, the former Queen Street United Church is now home to both a dynamic shared workspace on the upper levels, Sanctuary Coworking, and our one-of-a-kind loft accommodations below.

OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

Our accommodations are all centrally located near Skeleton Park, just steps from the bustling downtown core. Skeleton Park is a trendy up-and-coming area within the Inner Harbour Neighbourhood of Kingston, Ontario. Walk out your door and enjoy a picnic in the park, stroll down to the waterfront or hit the town.

What’s in a Name?

Skeleton Park (officially McBurney Park) earned its nickname due to its history as Kingston’s first cemetery. It opened in 1809 and quickly filled due to epidemics of typhus and cholera. Once the cemetery was full, it fell into disrepair. By 1893 city council finally decided to do something about it by changing it into the park that you see here today. Learn more about the history »
