St. Hilda’s Towers Transformation
St. Hilda’s Towers is a not-for-profit senior care community located in the Dufferin and Eglinton neighbourhood, providing more than three hundred units of affordable housing.
Since 2017, ERA has worked with St. Hilda’s Towers and the City of Toronto to scope and implement a long-term stewardship plan, beginning with renewing the towers to be more healthy, low-energy, accessible and resilient places to live.
The renewal and modernization project will include envelope upgrades, systems and distribution upgrades, significant communal space improvements, and the conversion of 20 per cent of units to be barrier-free. This work will be completed with residents in place, requiring the integration of a number of strategies for minimizing disruption. Construction is currently underway.
