Accomplishments in Construction
CLV Group has been involved in many successful construction and redevelopment endeavors. The following are just a few projects undertaken in the past.
218 MacLaren - 46 Unit Apartment Building
- This property was extensively renovated throughout including mechanical systems, exterior and common area upgrades and individual unit upgrades. Mechanical systems improvements were made to lower ongoing utility costs and improve delivery of heat and hot water. Exterior upgrades included new balcony railings, entrance canopy, landscaping and new paving. Common area improvements were also made to the property including a new grand entrance with wireless lounge, hallway improvements and an addition of a fitness centre. Unit upgrades consisted of new kitchens, bathrooms, flooring and lighting. These improvements resulted in a significant increase in rents and property value for the owners as well as comfort and satisfaction in the residents of the building.
131-141 Cooper Street - 200 Unit Hotel
- As an example of redevelopment, representing a group of potential purchasers we purchased 131/141 Cooper Street as an apartment building and converted it to a 200 unit combined apartment and hotel, known as The Aristocrat, after analyzing market needs. Significant work was undertaken to make this conversion a success including common area modifications, exterior upgrades, creating a corridor between both buildings, in unit improvements and furnishing of the suites. This action created a 50% increase in property value.
Downtown Heritage Buildings Portfolio - 4 Apartment Buildings
- CLV Construction represented a group of investors in renovating and retrofitting a portfolio of 4 apartment buildings, ranging from 22 units to 35 units. These buildings were near turn of the century construction with heritage flair. CLV Construction managed the installation of a new HVAC system to reduce energy consumption, upgraded all the common areas and interior unit elements. Individual units were outfitted with modern kitchens and bathrooms while maintaining the heritage flair that made these buildings unique. The improvements took place over 3 months and created a significant increase in value for the owners.
Rosemount Apartments – Combined 238 Unit Apartment Buildings
- As part of a complete construction and renovation plan, CLV Group Construction took 2386 & 2400 New Street to a new level. Building renovations included complete balcony restorations, extensive landscaping, new site paving, the installation of new mechanical and operational systems, and more. Upgrades were provided to all interior common areas, with the addition of an exterior pavilion, BBQ section and mini putt area, and the construction of new media and fitness centres. With the development of 8 additional units, the upgrades have set a new standard of rental expectation and resulted in an increase in rents and property value.
Lakeshore Apartments – 416 Unit High-Rise and Townhome Community
