Victorian Order of Nurses 

Victorian Order of Nurses (VON), a national registered charity, addresses the health needs of Canadians through services provided by nurses, other health professionals, support service workers, and volunteers.

The Challenge

VON had been located in an older, run-down, Class “C” building in Midtown Toronto for several years. Although this building was to some extent cost effective, it projected an undesirable organizational image. To transform this, VON appointed Savills Studley.

Savills Studley’s Response

After undertaking an exhaustive needs analysis, it was determined that VON’s office staff would be comfortable relocating their premises just north of Toronto. By doing this, the organization would be able to lease premises in a more attractive building as a result of a decrease in property taxes.

The Solution

After a detailed market analysis and several visits to various sites, Savills Studley subsequently negotiated favourable lease terms on behalf of VON for a building located at the intersection of Hwy. 404 and Steeles. Ave. in Markham. This location provided VON with a cost effective solution as well as a more congruent profile.
