[SOLD] 4620 Finch Avenue East


Site Introduction

We secured the sale of a 2.33-acre site containing the former Charles O. Bick Police College at Brimley Road and Finch Avenue East. As an old police school that had stood vacant for over two years, the building had a very specialized use, making a tear-down likely. However, because of our commitment to environmental sustainability and adaptive reuse, we found a purchaser who was committed to reusing the existing building. We provided financing to secure the transaction with Northstar, a school operator in Toronto, to reuse the existing building and the property as a private high school for foreign students.
