This project is a great example of urban renewal and densification. Built in the early 1950s, the federal post office in downtown Peterborough was a great example of civic architecture. Early in new century, the post office moved from this location and the building stood derelict. This project saw the building completely renovated into a new 91-unit apartment building with units ranging from 500 sq. ft. to over 1000 sq. ft.
The large postal hall had a new second floor constructed and the middle of the building was cut out to create a central courtyard allowing units to have views internally. A parking garage was added to the basement and retail was established along the urban edge of the building. Once complete, the building only took a few months to rent out and now stands strong and proud again in its new role.
