About Sawyer Block
For 35-years this building was home to Sawyer Sewing Centres, a landmark family business that provided the building with its title the “Sawyer Block” and is still in operation today on Douglas Street.
Vacant since 2005, the Sawyer Block is being revitalized and its handsome 1909 Edwardian façade is being restored. A new rental building and neighbourhood ground floor retail space has been constructed from its historic base, to deliver 60 new urban rental homes in Victoria’s downtown Fort Street corridor.
