Positive Outlook for Guelph’s Petrie Building - a 2014 Endangered Places Listing

Ottawa, ON, March 10, 2015 – The National Trust for Canada is pleased to announce that the Petrie Building, a unique landmark in downtown Guelph, will be acquired by Tyrcathlen Partners. One of three documented buildings in Canada erected prior to 1890 with a full sheet metal façade, the Petrie Building—a victim of years of neglect—was included on the National Trust’s list of Top Ten Endangered Places in 2014.

“The National Trust is very pleased with the news of the acquisition,” said Executive Director Natalie Bull. “Investment in this landmark building by a sympathetic developer was the outcome we dreamed of when inscribing the Petrie Building on our national Endangered Places list. Its rehabilitation will keep a landmark from becoming landfill, and inject new life into the city’s treasured historic downtown.”

Focusing exclusively on heritage restoration and adaptive reuse in Guelph, Tyrcathlen Partners’ projects involve innovative partnerships and solutions to save heritage buildings and transform their use. Other projects include the Granary Building (now home to the Guelph Chamber of Commerce, Innovative Guelph and others) and Boarding House Arts (a vibrant community of artists, arts organizations and galleries in the former Guelph Civic Museum).

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to revitalize this truly unique local landmark and national heritage treasure,” said Tyrcathlen Partners Principal Kirk Roberts. “After almost 100 years, it will be especially rewarding to see the upper floors come back to life.”The historic Petrie Building is located at 15 Wyndham Street North in Guelph, Ontario.
