Media Advisory - City and Sustainable Buildings Canada invite environmental minds to plan redevelopment of the St. Lawrence Market North building
Councillor Pam McConnell, City of Toronto staff and various experts will participate in a charrette next Tuesday and Wednesday to explore how the new St. Lawrence Market North building can be a showcase for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.

The recommendations from the charrette will guide the design of the building as the City moves forward in the planning and approval of this redevelopment project. The new St. Lawrence Market North building will be subject to the City’s Green Development Standard.

Date: Tuesday, December 4
Time: noon to 1:30 p.m.
Location: St. Lawrence Market North
Agenda: welcome, context for meeting, assigning of teams

Date: Wednesday, December 5
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: St. Lawrence Market North
Agenda: review teams and goals, breakout groups, progress report, final presentations, Q&As

The existing St. Lawrence Market North building does not meet the needs of current users. It does not relate to the rest of the neighbourhood and is only used two days out of the week. The City intends to demolish this building and replace it with a multi-storey, multi-purpose facility that has a public market on the ground floor.

The media and public are welcome to observe throughout the charrette. There will be a question and answer period after the final presentations on Wednesday.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won more than 70 awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.

Note: media can register at the event to receive a kit and to be added to the distribution list
