Media Advisory: City, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts host University Avenue Triangle groundbreaking ceremony
Toronto Mayor David Miller and City Councillor Adam Vaughan (Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina), Brian Richardson, Vice President of Brand Marketing and Communications at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, and Heather McCrory, Regional Vice President and General Manager of The Fairmont Royal York will officially kick-off a joint partnership to improve the Triangle bordered by Front St. and two branches of University Ave.

Date: Thursday, November 8 (rain or shine)
Time: 3 p.m.
Location: Library Room, Fairmont Royal York, 100 Front St. W. (Mezzanine Level)

Followed by a photo-op at the Triangle on top of the Green P parking lot, located north of Front St, between two branches of University Ave.

To celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2007, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is partnering with the City of Toronto to revitalize this small and prominent location. With its corporate headquarters located in the downtown core and the Fairmont Royal York close by, the redesigned Triangle will reflect Fairmont’s Canadian roots, its strong connection to Toronto’s railway heritage as well as its progressive environmental commitments while providing an oasis for local workers and visitors.

The Triangle, scheduled to open in 2008, is being designed by the MBTW Group. Over the winter, Fairmont will also work with the City to engage Toronto schoolchildren in naming the new space.

This is one of the projects resulting from the City of Toronto’s Neighbourhood Beautification Program, which is designed to engage communities to clean and beautify overlooked spaces. For more program information, please visit
