The Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall celebrated Phase 1 of its seven-year Massey Hall Revitalization project.

While still years away, this launch moves us one step closer to the conservation work that will be undertaken by GBCA. Exterior masonry (including the stone carved “Massey Music Hall” signband), along with an extensive list of interior features, will be repaired and/or restored in conjunction with the new addition designed by KPMB Architects. Original design elements so integral to the hall, including stained glass windows, plaster ceiling and Art Deco lobby will be carefully assessed in a GBCA Conservation Plan.

For more information, see the Corporation’s Press Release.  The event was also covered by UrbanToronto.
