Progressive Meets Heritage
Located at the corner of West 17th Avenue and Ontario Street, the Turner Dairy was constructed in 1913 during the pre-First World War development boom that swept across Vancouver. It is a rare surviving example of a purpose-built dairy of the Edwardian period that has been in continuous industrial use since its completion. Current owners, Hassan and Amir Hemani, worked here assembling leather handbags for their family’s business which operated from 1978 until 1998. Now, they have a vision to see the Turner Dairy rehabilitated and actively used as a legacy to the site and their family’s connection to it.
Turners Dairy combines new construction with preservation of the character-defining elements of the dairy and stable buildings, including the layout of original character-defining exterior walls, their door and window openings, and interior structural elements – especially the roof truss structure of the Stable Building. The redevelopment will offer 13 two- and three-storey residences designed for contemporary and efficient living suited to the modern family.
