The Sawyer Block

Original building constructed in 1909

The Sawyer Block was constructed in 1909 and was a mainstay commercial building for almost a century. It was the home of Sawyer Sewing Machines for 35 years, but has since been vacated since 2005.

On Monday July 9, 2018, Salient started on its rejuvenation plan for the Sawyer Block @ 840 Fort Street, Victoria. Construction is expected to take about 16 months. Once completed, the Sawyer Block will be a six-storey rental building consisting of 60 new urban studios and junior 1-bedroom homes as well as ground floor retail space.
