Creating Connections Across the City
We take a holistic approach to the way we plan for, build and develop neighbourhoods across Toronto. We engage with community members, local residents and stakeholders to ideate, create and find solutions during the development process. These personal connections build a solid foundation for our practices to ensure we deliver on projects that are recognized and celebrated by the community.
505 Richmond Street West
A community built by the community
Over the last four years, our team has worked with a number of stakeholders to better understand the history of this site and the potential of this heritage-designated property. Following extensive consultations with a heritage consultant, City of Toronto stakeholders and community members, we announced the revitalization plans for this community-focused development. The 13-storey complex will include 299 residential units, a new YMCA, a public food hall and retail space. Eva’s Phoenix, a homeless youth initiative, has already opened in the east quarter of the complex. In 2016, we partnered with MOD Developments and Woodcliffe Landmark Properties to help deliver the program. The project is currently under construction.
Etobicoke Civic Centre
Building a new vision together
The plans for the Etobicoke Civic Centre (ECC) will transform the area into a revitalized civic hub for municipal, cultural and community uses. In collaboration with the City, a design competition was launched, with four shortlisted design teams as the competing finalists, all of which submitted their various conceptual designs for the development. A jury of professional architects, landscape architects, planners and urban designers selected Adamson Architects & Associates | Henning Larsen Architects | PMA Landscape Architects as the winning submission. In December 2017, City Council accepted the winning submission as the conceptual design for the new ECC.
