For more than 30 years, York Heritage Properties and its dedicated principals and team have worked actively and enthusiastically as restorers and renovators of designated heritage structures and architecturally significant older buildings in the City of Toronto.
In the St. Lawrence Market district, the firm's restoration of such properties as 67-69 Front St. E. and the Daniel Brooke and Murchison Buildings at King and Jarvis Streets has served as a model for the refurbishment of other heritage structures in the historically rich and currently thriving neighbourhood. York Heritage's five-year restoration and retrofitting of the century old Toronto Carpet Factory at King and Mowat has spawned a similar phenomenon in Liberty Village, where others have been following in York Heritage's footsteps by restoring other older industrial properties in the burgeoning district.
In addition to these trend-setting projects, York Heritage Properties has also spearheaded such successful preservation initiatives as the renovation of 11 Church St. and 70 Bond St., and the initial renovation of 156 Front St. W., many of which are listed or designated by the City of Toronto as heritage buildings. Moreover, they have renovated other older buildings at 50 Wellington St. E., 3 Church St., 10 Alcorn Ave., the York Liberty buildings and 161 Liberty St. York Heritage has also played an advisory or investment role in the renovation of several hundred thousand square feet of commercial buildings of similar historic and architectural value.
