Preserving a place of worship as a piece of history is well worthwhile when a place of worship experiences a significant decline in attendance and is done right when the community remains involved with the preservation process. Both of these are the case with Meddalion Capitol Group’s 260 High Park.
The developer has maintained an open dialog with the community since they obtained the struggling property, and have acknowledged the importance of preserving the heritage aspect to the Toronto landmark.
The Church was originally built in 1908 by famed architectural firm Burke, Horwood and White.
Today, Meddalion Capitol Group has partnered with Turner Fleischer Architects and ERA Architects. The Boston based architect Turner Fleisher has been let loose for the first time in Toronto, to create the modern portion of the building’s design. While ERA is on top of the historic portion of the development, with their expertise in heritage building preservation playing an important role in the project.
Suites in the 55-unit contemporary portion of the complex will range between 632 and 2,567 ft² and starting in the $600,000s—are already on sale and are close to 70% sold out. They come in one-bedroom, one-bedroom+den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom+den, and three-bedroom+den layouts.
Sales of the 15 Sanctuary Church Loft suites are beginning soon. They will range between 837 and 3,081 ft², come in one-bedroom, one-bedroom+den, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom+den layouts, and be priced between $1M and $4M. Sanctuary Lofts will feature stained glass windows, have ceiling heights that average 10 feet, some with vaulted ceilings.
