Built in 1891 as the offices for Dingman’s soap factory, the Romanesque building at Queen and Broadview were converted years later into a hotel, and then following a steady decline- the infamous Jilly’s Strip Club.
Working with the owners Streetcar Developments, DesignAgency designed all the communal areas, restaurants and cafes spaces, roof terrace and rooms. This 58 room boutique hotel hosts The Broadview café and bar, Civic restaurant, Lincoln Hall and Lincoln Terrace with a private dining room also in the building’s historic tower. ERA Architects were appointed to work on the overall restoration.
This iconic landmark now hosts bespoke furniture and lighting pieces and well as being sympathetically updated, restoring the building to its former character. The mood of the spaces feels contemporary, thoughtful, laid-back and comforting.
