Old Victoria Hospital Lands

The City of London is pleased to present a unique development opportunity within the Old Victoria Hospital Lands. This is the second phase of land disposition associated with the Old Victoria Hospital and it presents developers with the unique opportunity to combine modern living with the charm of historically significant buildings.

Phase II Details:

The second phase of the Old Victoria Hospital Lands is located within the up and coming SoHo neighbourhood of London. The site is located at the gateway of the downtown, in walking distance to future rapid transit stations and is in close proximity to the Thames River and its amenities.

This 6.25 acres (2.53ha) site includes two historically significant buildings. All municipal services are available.

A Zoning By-law amendment has been initiated by the City of London for this site, which would permit primarily medium-density residential uses with opportunities for small-scale commercial and office uses.
