7 Hinton Avenue
Striking heritage features are the distinguishing marks of a spacious office and warehouse development at 7 Hinton Avenue in Hintonburg.
From the turn of the century until 1974 the property served as the manufacturing plant for The Capital Wire Cloth Company. In 1984 Metcalfe Realty completely redeveloped the property, winning wide recognition for conserving the property’s unique historical architectural characteristics and skillfully integrating them into the building’s new design. The exterior brick finish was restored to its original character and new windows were custom designed to duplicate the intricate detailing of the original windows.
