Raising the Roof Cedar Mains opening

On March 6th, Raising the Roof held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the second affordable housing project that we have completed with them under their new Reside program which aims to prevent homelessness by creating new housing options for people at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness. Working with BuildingUp, Reside creates training and employment opportunities for individuals facing barriers to employment in the trades while renovating each home. BuildingUp worked with Endeavour school to train BuildingUp participants in environmentally sound renovation practices to create ecologically sustainable renovations.

The Cedar Mains project took the decrepit 1857-1858 Shiloh Wesleyan Methodist church building on the site, vacant for 13 years, and repurposes it for new housing for use by their new tenant, Caledon Area Families for Inclusion (CAFFI), which seeks to serve the affordable housing needs for adults with developmental disabilities.

George Street Revitalization Project

GSR_CR_KickoffMontgomery Sisam and Hilditch Architect have been awarded Stage One of the City of Toronto’s George Street Revitalization Project. The George Street Revitalization will use the site of the existing Seaton House Shelter to create a dynamic new mix of housing and programs for homeless and vulnerable seniors. The new development will include an innovative combination of emergency shelter, long term care and assisted living beds as well as a service hub to provide a range of services to clients and the surrounding community. The revitalization will also support the creation of a vibrant and safe mixed-use neighbourhood. Montgomery Sisam and Hilditch Architect have been delivering projects that help people break barriers to health and community services, provide long term care, affordable housing, and emergency shelter for over 30 years. We are excited to harness all of our collective “lessons learned” into a remarkable project of human and community renewal.
