St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition Short-list
On February 3, 2010, Toronto Mayor David Miller announced the five short-listed competitors who will vie for the title of ‘winning design’ in the St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition. The redevelopment of the St. Lawrence Market North property is to replace the existing one-storey North Market building with a new four-storey, multi-purpose facility that is mindful of the character and heritage of the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. The announcement came after architectural teams across the country and abroad responded to Stage 1 of the competition by submitting expressions of interest, and the City and a professional advisor to the competition narrowed the field to a final list of competitors. Stage 2 of the competition began on February 3, 2010, in which the finalists develop full building designs.
The design proposals were exhibited May 7, 8 and 9 and the jury is currently evaluating the five short-listed submissions. The competition winner will be announced on June 7, 2010. The new North Market building in the St. Lawrence Market Complex is expected to be completed and operating by 2014.
