About This Project
The Carnovsky Bakery Building, 652 Princess Street, Kingston, Ontario, is an 1820’s, Kingston limestone building at the corner of a development site for which MDL along with John Cooke, Heritage Structural Engineer, are providing the conservation and restoration consulting services. The MDL team is working with IBI, the consultant group for the ten storey, 350 unit, residential mid-rise project that will occupy the majority of the site. When the project is completed this stand-alone restored and repurposed two-storey stone building will continue to form and animate the corner of Princess and as it has for almost 200 years.
