The William Whitehead House has moved. It is now closer to Sherbourne Street on Howard. The house weighed 380 tonnes and was quite an impressive production to get it down the street.
The house was built in 1887 and is a great example of a bay and gable house style commonly found in Toronto later 19th century. Last used as a rooming house, Lanterr Developments, ERA Architects and Hunt Heritage have big plans to make this gem shine again. Lots of work, but quite a reveal when completed.
We will be completing masonry cleaning, repointing/tuckpointing, slate and copper restoration, Stone work and terra cotta repairs. Ridley windows will be installing new windows.
