Welcome to Cathedraltown, Canada's most exquisite community, built around the awe-inspiring Cathedral of the Transfiguration, just east of Highway 404 between Major Mackenzie Drive and Elgin Mills Road.

Cathedraltown's elegant architecture was designed under the direction of Donald Buttress, Architect and Surveyor Emeritus of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey, in London, England, and based upon the classic Georgian and Regency styles that flourished in London during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Cathedraltown has now grown into a vibrant community, featuring single and multi-family dwellings, condominiums, stylish retail and commercial space.

Amenities include a beautiful Arboretum and a Heritage Orchard, Lincoln Alexander Public School and nearby Sir Wilfred Laurier Public School as well as boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

The Courtyards are the first phase of what will become Cathedraltown's crowning achievement - a magnificent Piazza that will surround the Cathedral and highlight what is sure to become a heritage destination for future generations.

The Cathedral of the Transfiguration, whose cornerstone was blessed by Pope John Paul II, was inspired by Stephen B. Roman, as a beacon for religious freedom and centre for diverse cultures to be able to worship there.

One of the Cathedral's most awe-inspiring features is the 80-footwide mosaic of Christ Pantocrator that was installed in the Dome eight years ago.

Since then work has been progressing on the mosaic in the Circle under the Dome, which will contain the images of the 13 apostles.

Work is also being completed on the Pendentives under the Circle. These Pendentives will have special depictions of the four Evangelists.

The Cathedral's Casavant concert organ was installed two years ago. Casavant Frères is a world renowned Quebec company that has produced more than 3,000 organs since its founding in 1879.
