Located in a vibrant and transforming creative district in downtown Kingston, the Bailey Broom Factory is a brownfield site currently owned by the City. The existing building, designed in the 1900s by prominent Kingston architect William Newlands, was slated for demolition until  community outcry compelled the City to designate the building as a heritage site. RAW has offered to purchase the property, stabilize the site, and restore the existing building, transforming a  deteriorating eye-sore into an exciting and marketable emblem for the neighbourhood. The proposed uses for the building include a small RAW branch office, an affordable accelerator space for local start-ups, and a café to serve as a hub for neighbourhood gathering and discussion, fortifying the connection between small scale business and the surrounding community.
