The Adams Building
Built in 1919 for the flagship store and offices of the former Adams Furniture Company, this heritage building at 211 Yonge Street last saw major renovation in the 1970s, and little renewal had occurred since.
In 2016, Walton GC began work on an extensive interior renovation, resulting in a refreshed robust heritage building on Toronto’s most prominent street.
During tenant turnover, abandoned spaces were carefully analyzed and explored for reuse and turn-key marketing of the suite as is, or with minor modification where possible.
The renewed space includes the refurbishment of the original strip wood flooring, exposing and fire-rating the cast iron columns. New stairs and guards provide access between the lower and upper display areas, and complement the larger space. New mechanical, electrical and life safety systems formed part of the design. This included new lighting, heating, air conditioning, and an update to the existing sprinkler system.
