About the Project

The Residence for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto is a new home for a group of dynamic religious women who have spent a lifetime caring for the poor, sick and disadvantaged.

The building is situated at the edge of the Don Valley and located at the corner of Broadview Avenue and O’Connor Drive in East York. The project consists of 58 resident suites located in the heart of the City of Toronto and includes the restoration and rehabilitation of the 1850’s Taylor House.

The new residence’s single loaded corridor lets in an abundance of natural light and natural ventilation enabling the suites to overlook the verdant ravine landscape.

The project is built to the highest standards of environmental sensitivity with geothermal heating and cooling, solar panels, solar hot water pre-heating, green roofs, rainwater cisterns and permeable pavers. The project’s green agenda is an integral part of its legacy.
