37 King Street, Georgetown
build updates March 19, 2021
We are excited to share our plans to build 6 homes at 37 King Street, Georgetown.
- This project will include two main structures a townhome building consisting of four (4 bedroom ) units and one duplex with two (3 bedroom units).
- We have resubmitted our zoning and official plan by-law amendment applications required to change the zoning for the property and allow the 6 units to be built on-site.
- Currently, we are working through our required planning documents to submit our Site Plan application and our build permits before Summer 2021.
- These units will incorporate high-quality modular design and will be built in a state-of-the-art factory right here in Ontario. This modular system ensures minimal to no waste and the highest energy efficiency as solar-ready construction.
- As a nod to the history of the original Exchange Hotel structure, the interior of the duplex will feature the exposed beams that we carefully salvaged and preserved during our deconstruction process.
We are committed to keeping the community informed about our plans and build schedule. Check back in here for frequent project updates.

Our Build Story
The McFadden-McMahon Build Project in Georgetown is one of our most unique ventures yet. Situated on the site of the town’s old railway hotel, this is our first build involving a structure that has, for many years, played a prominent role in the local community. The transformation of the original building will be conducted under the guidance of a heritage architect to ensure that is carefully documented, dismantled, and stored for reconstruction. The end result will see six new homes added to the much-needed affordable housing market.
Introducing the McFadden-McMahon Build Project
Our CEO John Gerrard had the happy task of announcing the next volunteers to be honoured through our build project naming initiative at our annual Home for the Holidays Volunteer Celebration on November 30th, 2017. Our Exchange Hotel project in Georgetown has now been named for two active supporters of our organization as “The McFadden-McMahon Build Project”. Ed McMahon served on our Board Of Directors for 10 years and currently is a member of our national Habitat Canada board. Tom McFadden has devoted his time and carpentry skills to help build homes on our construction sites.
