Parkside Student Residence

The HIDI Group in partnership with Diamond Schmitt Architects and Knightstone Capital Management provided Mechanical, Electrical, Lighting and Security design on the conversion of the former 22-storey Primrose Hotel, into a new student residence located in Toronto’s downtown core, just steps away from Ryerson University, University of Toronto, and George Brown College.

The project includes a full renovation of the three lowest floors, and a partial renovation of the remainder of the building. With a construction budget of $16 million, this fast track project was turned around in just 7 months from design development through to occupancy, which was critical to welcome students in time for the commencement of the school year.

Completion Date: 2015
