Phoenix Restoration’s work is back in the news. After extensive restoration, and renovation the Broadview Hotel is soon to reopen. This is the second time that Phoenix Restoration has worked on this heritage building. Almost 30 years ago Phoenix performed masonry repairs to the building when it was still the infamous Jillys. Today we continue to maintenance the Broadview Hotel as it enters a new era.

The 125 years old building is a community landmark, and best known for its 1891 Romanesque revival architecture.

Phoenix Restoration Inc. has been very busy as of late. Some of the larger projects we are working on now are Toronto’s Union Station, Osgoode Hall, and The Brockville Tunnel. We are beginning to wrap things up with the Historic Windsor Amoury.

The Brockville Tunnel is a really interesting project, as it was the first railway tunnel in Canada. The Tunnel is located under the downtown core of The Town of Brockville, and runs about a kilometre in length. Construction began on the tunnel in 1854, and was completed by 1860. Since Brockville is strategically located on the St. Lawrence river, during the 19th century the town had a very active port. The think tank behind the Brockville Tunnel, was interested in creating a quick connection to The City of Ottawa from the port.

The Tunnel itself is constructed almost entirely of brick, so the project requires the historic masonry expertise, that Phoenix Restoration specializes in. We are looking forward to its revitalization.

The Point Abino Lighthouse was an exciting project for Phoenix Restoration. A National Historic Site, The Point Abino Lighthouse, had to undergo rigorous concrete repairs.
