Big changes have been happening at the site of Casey House’s new home at 571 Jarvis Street! The “Grey Lady” is turning red!
The historic Johnston mansion has been affectionately known to the community for the past decades as the “Grey Lady” due to its grey painted brick.
In February 2014, Infrastructure Ontario and Casey House released a request for proposals to six shortlisted companies to build and finance the Casey House Redevelopment Project.
In early May, workers removed the grey paint in order to obtain a more accurate assessment of the brick and stonework. This work will enable the six companies to provide a more accurate bid. (Read about the tendering process here.)
We’re very pleased that construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014.
All of us at Casey House, in partnership with our consultants and the Government of Ontario, are continually working to advance the Casey House Redevelopment Project through the required stages to completion.
