Privately owned, we are a small company with a committed team of people who love what we do. Our goal is to add value to our city and people’s lives by transforming our properties into vibrant hubs for business and living.
What our residents are saying
I’ve been lucky enough to live in this community for almost 5 years. When I say community I don’t mean the West End. I mean our building. I have never in my life lived in a place where the neighbors were so close and helpful.
I’m sure the transition after you acquired the property was a little more defensive than it needed to be. People are always afraid of change.
Personally, I couldn’t be happier. I’ve found our building manager to not only be a smart, competent, effective building manager, but as a person she is caring and attentive and I couldn’t ask for a better person to be looking after our building. I have had several hiccups in my space and she has responded quickly and professionally at every turn.
3yrs of micro-living essentially changed my life. It’s a lifestyle that led to my creative and financial freedom – while being affordable, convenient, a lighter/greener footprint and surrounded by a like-minded community in return.
Micro-living is rewarding and refreshing. Minimizing square footage inspired me to create a surprisingly sleek, expressive and footprint-friendly space. It’s an easy trade for a location that’s walking distance to shops, a spirited nightlife and a reduced commute time to work.
After completing my undergraduate degree, it was important for me to live frugally but also comfortably. Micro-living proved to be the perfect solution. I was able to save money while enjoying the perks of residing in the heart of the city. Friendly neighbours and great management were an additional bonus!
Our building was a little diamond in the rough. I love that it’s safe and been made modern where it counts while holding true to its historic charm. There are so many incredible local businesses in the area, and I couldn’t ask for a better community of neighbours.
Micro-living has been a great way to save money and get ahead. I’ve been able to get back to the basics and re-focus on my career. Being in a central location with affordable rent has made all the difference in this stage of my life.
Great people mean a lot. This is the first photo of bald me (during chemo treatment for Lymphoma). I’d asked my neighbour if he could take some before pics of my hair. While in the hall, we were joined by a few more tenants. After a whole thwack of photos we decided we had enough and should just buzz it off! We ended up cutting my hair down into every hilarious style we could until it was gone. Like most of the awesome times we’ve had as a group, it started with bumping into people in the hall and going from there. I was lucky to have had such a fantastic community around me during a challenging time.
I made great friends in the building. Like lifelong super connected friends. There’s something to be said for meeting people who are in the same place at the same time in our lives. We just get each other. I didn’t expect it when I moved in (wasn’t on my radar at all) but it’s what I appreciate most. We’re all thankful for a great manager who somehow knew that we’d all fit together!
