180 Groh Avenue, Cambridge

The former location of the Rauscher Plating Limited manufacturing plant, this 11-acre site situated in a vibrant area of Cambridge is being redeveloped for mixed-use living. The site is just a stone’s throw from the 401; Hespeler Road (highway 24); commercial and lifestyle areas; and elementary and secondary schools.

The remediation of heavy metals, Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from the site is well underway. King & Benton is negotiating with several interested parties to build a 700-unit mixed-residential/commercial project, including condos and townhouses, as well as a new community space for the city of Cambridge. Construction is expected to begin in late 2021.

85 Morell Street, Brantford

110,000 Square-Foot Luxury Residential Complex

This 10-acre industrial property was home to the Harding Carpet manufacturing plant, a major fixture in Brantford’s industrial community. The former plant contained stacks of old tires, piles of thick foam, drums of chemicals and bales of shredded plastic, contaminating the site with Trichloroethylene (TCE), heavy metals, hydrocarbons and 100 tonnes of asbestos. King & Benton redeveloped, demolished and remediated an estimated 500,000 square-feet.

As part of Phase I, this property was fully redeveloped into a building with plenty of space for warehouses and modern-concept offices and is now home to King & Benton’s main offices.

Phase II of this redevelopment converted 3.1 acres into 2 multi-residential two-story upscale buildings consisting of:
  • 108 luxury condo units that qualify as affordable housing under city bylaws,
  • 16 two-bedroom apartments with various layouts (some of which include a den with skylight),
  • 92 One-Bedroom apartments with various layouts,
  • A Gross Floor Area of 110,00 square feet and
  • 95,000 square feet of gross leasable space
This project was the first record of site condition filed under Ontario regulation 153/06 in Brantford and was the largest environmental cleanup in Ontario without the use of any public funding.

168-178 Colborne Street, Brantford

This 11.5-acre site of the former Stelco Fasteners manufacturing plant was purchased by King & Benton in 1999 and has since undergone a major transformation and environmental cleanup (the site had been contaminated by heavy metals, Trichloroethylene (TCE), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hydrocarbons). It was primarily a fully functioning warehousing facility until 2012/2013 when the decision was made to demolish the building, remediate the property and build a future development.

This mixed-use redevelopment project will include:

  • 296 residential units in four 5-story buildings,
  • A 20,000 square-foot Gym/Athletic Club and
  • A 12,000 square-foot commercial building with planned multi-tenant capacity.

The project is currently in the design and remediation phase, with remediation concluding with RSC filing in 2021. Completion of the building is expected for late 2022.
