Bata Shoe Factory Condominium


The former Bata Shoe factory continues its transformation from factory space to living and working place. The Dalton Company has been making steady progress converting the former shoe factory into a mixed-use condominium. But this project is much more than a factory being converted into a condo. It’s a about a changing community.

Guided by Batawa Development Corporation’s (BDC) vision to build a beautiful, sustainable, vibrant, and friendly community in Batawa, ON.

Work our team has completed to date includes taking off the old exterior, removing unnecessary interior elements, adding balconies and glass windows and we’re building a new roof that will support a 12,000 square-foot patio. On the ground floor, extensive work is being done to prepare for a floating, feature staircase made of structural steel.

We are employing sustainable building principles to ensure energy efficiency. For example, a geothermal heating system will keep building residents warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Crews have drilled over 60 holes that descend 600 feet underground for the heating and cooling system. Tubes will be inserted into the holes and a special fluid—which captures and transfers the earth’s energy—will circulate through the closed loop system to heat and cool the condo.
