5 Michael Street

Kitchener, Ontario

This 1910 shoe factory was been under-utilized for 15 years and has now undergone extensive renovations to provide high quality loft-style office space. The 30 500 square foot building was thoroughly renovated over winter and spring of 2017. Work included removal of old internal partitions, brick repairs, new windows and complete new Mechanical and Electrical systems. Within the historic brick and wood structure, new washrooms have been provided to include full barrier free access, and a new entrance porch has been added with an accessible lift. The industrial aesthetic of the interior space has been preserved to highlight the original building structure of the heavy timber columns and exposed masonry.
