The Builders Block

93 Trinity St. is being reimagined by the BMI Group as The Builders Block, a 382-residential plan that conserves and converts the shuttered historic seven-acre Krug factory property into a multi-resident neighbourhood, complete with a set of complementary Townhomes, and residential apartments including a 10-storey feature, catering to young professionals, tradespeople, families, and downsizing retirees in the Perth County market.

Our goal at The Builders Block is to create a community that integrates thoughtfully with its surroundings, efficiently uses existing infrastructure, and couples underground with surface parking to minimize vehicle footprints. Importantly, our plan repurposes existing infrastructure to provide new homes in Stratford, helping mitigate urban sprawl, and works to preserve Perth County's agricultural lands and farming heritage.

Conserving a Legacy

Conserving a Legacy

An iconic Stratford property where workers thrived and prospered, where national pride met national output, and where a foundation of hard work laid the groundwork for the here and now.

  • 1901 Building opens as the McLagan Furniture Factory, an iconic Stratford property.
  • 1941-1942 Serves as WWII barracks for the Dutch infantry.
  • 1951 Resumes its manufacturing role under the Imperial Furniture Company where Jan Kuypers made his mark on Canadian modern design.
  • 1980 Purchased by the Krug Furniture company and immediately begins to manufacture Krug’s new traditional desk line—a key factor in Krug’s global success.

Last year, we walked door-to-door and spoke to upwards of 200 residents. In a similar spirit, we hosted a public open house to share our designs where we engaged and gathered input from over 100 neighbouring residents.

We’ve also collaborated with the Stratford and District Historical Society and the Stratford and Perth Architectural Conservancy of Ontario, who have expressed their support for this project. The feedback we received has been instrumental in shaping The Builders Block design.

This development is working to be Stratford's first to designate 10% of residences as affordable housing, as defined by Canada’s Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and bound by a 25-year developer agreement if accepted into the program—a much needed initiative to support young families priced out of the current market.
