    Over the course of a decade, under the leadership of Paul Oberman, Woodcliffe Landmark Properties acquired these three buildings and embarked on an ambitious plan to reinvent the street. In addition to restoring the heritage buildings and adding retail spaces, public realm and street improvements were implemented and set new standards. The heritage buildings received new mechanical and electrical systems, and, in many cases, new flooring. Woodcliffe also installed new storm and sanitary sewers, water and gas lines.

    To stabilize the second storey brick façade of the Armory Hotel, it was completed rebuilt, including replication of wood windows and a brick parapet, and the recreation of a missing wood cornice. Outer bricks were rotated so the fresh inner face of the brick was shown, and replacement bricks were ordered from the UK, as no company in Canada made ones that matched the style and colour. As part of the complex’s redevelopment, an internal corridor was built along the rear of the buildings with access to a loading zone and garbage storage area, preventing the use of Market Street as a loading area. Woodcliffe also rebuilt and waterproofed the stone foundation of 87 Front Street.
