Inspired Conversion: Residential to Commercial with Basement Office Rentals


Converting a residential
building to office space


Hoffman Law


North York

In 2020, HCM managed an ambitious conversion of a residential building into a sleek, modern, and light-filled legal office. The project also involved renovating the exterior, creating a stone front entry with modern glass railings and parking facilities in the back (with zoning for extra parking in the front).

To build basement offices, we removed block walls and gutted the lower level, involving 2.5 feet of underpinning and steel beams to create an open concept workspace. From there, we designed and built attractive rental offices, storage facilities, public washrooms, and a custom kitchen, all to attract upscale tenants.

“HCM completed a MAJOR commercial renovation project for me. It was my first time undertaking a project of this caliber, and John was incredibly professional and reliable the entire time. He gave me a detailed quote, and stuck to budget, as well as our timeline. I always say this about John: renovations are always stressful but having someone like John managing my project made it the least possible stressful experience!”
