The Elizabeth Fry Society of Toronto offers transitional housing, counselling, community, court and outreach programs for vulnerable women in need. The Elizabeth Fry Centre will be a 32 unit, 8 storey supportive housing development for those who have had conflict with the law, served terms of incarceration and face challenges of poverty.

Through a mix of short- and long-term units, residents will be provided with support services on-site; shared laundry facilities; a common kitchen for short-term residents; private kitchens long-term residents; and amenity spaces, including: an outdoor terrace, a fitness area, a lounge and social areas.

The in-progress project is located at 215 Wellesley St E in Toronto’s Cabbagetown neighbourhood and will be built with an encapsulated cross laminated timber (CLT) structure. HGC is responsible for comprehensive design input to achieve sound transmission (ASTC) compliance of suite-demising separations with respect to Ontario Building Code requirements. Suite-demising assemblies and junction details will be separately assessed and, where necessary, modeled to verify the theoretical acoustical performance of both the demising assembly and adjacent constructions.
