The two-story building tucked into the corner of a somewhat hidden industrial crescent just off
busy Kipling Avenue in Etobicoke hardly seems an appropriate home base for one of Canada’s latest
and greatest entertainment exports. Then again, its proprietor has never been one to put style ahead of substance. This is the head office of The Holmes Group, the multi-media empire headed
by renowned Canadian do-it-your-self wunderkind Mike Holmes. Thanks to the enormous success of
the HGTV network’s award-winning Holmes on Homes television show, which Holmes developed, starred
in and produced for seven seasons, the Toronto native has spawned a multi-million dollar enterprise encompassing television shows, books, DVDs, branded clothing, advertising endorsements, personal appearances and now, nearest and dearest to the heart of its owner, cutting-edge residential development projects.
