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.
