Built as a business center and social gathering place in 1891, The Broadview Hotel stood as a symbol of progress and sophistication in Toronto’s developing east end. Eventually, it was converted into a hotel and then a rooming house with Jilly’s, a notorious strip bar, taking residence on the ground floor. In 2012, Streetcar Developments, a Toronto property developer with a reputation for creating innovative, community-based housing projects, purchased the building. The developer worked with ERA Architects to completely restore and rebuild the iconic landmark into a luxury boutique hotel and entertainment venue. The restoration project won a Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Excellence in Conservation. Barbican and custom-designed Revelation from Couture by Kentwood and Evoke custom luxury vinyl flooring solutions add richness and warmth to the city’s much-loved landmark.
