Sawyer Block


840 Fort Street, Victoria




Mixed use, with 60 modern homes for rent, and one great retail space

840 Fort Street is a modern / heritage hybrid 6-storey building of urban, modern, purpose-built rental homes over a single, stunning retail space fronted by the restored Sawyer Block

For 35 years, this location was the home of the Sawyer Sewing Centre, a landmark family business, still in operation on Douglas Street, for which the “Sawyer Block” is named. Vacant since 2005, the Sawyer Block has been revitalized and the handsome façade restored. From its historic base, the Salient Group has created spectacular compact urban homes for rent in a new, 6-storey modern addition. This new building is now home to ground floor, neighbourhood retail space and 60-new urban studios and junior 1-bedrooms with high ceilings in a fabulous location.

Servissio managed the residential and retail lease-up of the Sawyer Block.

For inquiries and availability on the residential suites, please contact our Building Manager at

We are very excited to welcome Belle General, “A modern-day mercantile with a small footprint and a big heart” to the Sawyer Block street front!
