Media Advisory - City of Toronto to unveil designs from short-listed teams in the St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition
Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone (Ward 19 Trinity-Spadina) and Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale) will reveal the short-listed designs for the St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition.

Date: Friday, May 7
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: The Great Hall, St. Lawrence Hall, 157 King St. E.

Short-listed teams have now developed full building designs for a new, vibrant North Market building in one of the most historic landmarks in the city, the St. Lawrence Market Complex. With the presentation of the design concepts on May 7, a jury of seven distinguished members will evaluate the design submissions and choose the winning design, which will be announced in June.

The St. Lawrence Market Complex, made up of St. Lawrence Hall, the South Market and North Market buildings, housed Toronto’s first City Hall and has served as Toronto’s social centre and premier marketplace for more than 200 years. The St. Lawrence Market North redevelopment will replace the existing one-storey North Market building with a new four-storey, multi-purpose facility that is more environmentally sustainable, more energy efficient, and more sensitive to the heritage fabric and history of the surrounding neighbourhood.
