GBCA congratulates our clients, Alterra-Zinc Limited, for their nomination at this year’s Heritage Toronto Awards. A collaboration of Zinc Developments and Alterra, the development at 36 Hazelton Avenue, in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood, reused a portion of the existing historic school building within the high-end condominium designed by Toronto’s Quadrangle Architects.

It was our pleasure bringing heritage to life in collaboration with our clients, Ken Zuckerman and Robert Cooper.

The nominees for the William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship Award can be viewed here.

Having already been recognized locally with awards from the City of Toronto, the restoration of the historic buildings adjacent to Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market has now received national distinction with the Ecclesiastical Insurance Cornerstone Award for Building Heritage. Presented by the National Trust for Canada (formerly Heritage Canada), these honors recognize excellence in the regeneration of heritage buildings and sites, with the goal of bringing national attention to exemplary commercial, institutional or mixed-use projects.

GBCA was heritage consultant for the project, working with Taylor Smyth Architects.

Photos of the award ceremony can be found on the National Trust for Canada website.

The awards were recently cited in Canadian Architect Magazine.
