The Brighton Block is a 3 storey Edwardian era brick mixed use building initially notable because of its association with the photographer Ernest Brown who constructed the original building. Over the years the interior of the structure had unfortunately fallen into a state of disrepair. Primavera Development Group brought on Hodgson Schilf Evans Architects, Read Jones Christoffersen, MCW Hemisphere, ECCOM Consulting and PCL Construction Management to restore the building to its original state of prominence as a vibrant mixed use retail and office development. Join us for breakfast and a tour of of this beautifully rehabilitated historic building presented by Kenneth Cantor and Adam Cantor from Primavera Developments and Creag Vogel from Read Jones Christoffersen.
