Media Advisory - City of Toronto to announce short-listed competitors and jury members for St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition
Media are invited to join Mayor David Miller and Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale) for the announcement of short-listed competitors and jury members for the architectural design competition for a new, vibrant St. Lawrence Market North building.

Date: Wednesday, February 3
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: St. Lawrence Market North Building, 92 Front St. E.

Many architectural teams from Canada and abroad responded to Stage 1 of the competition by submitting expressions of interest. The field has been narrowed to a short list of competitors who will enter Stage 2 of the competition and develop full building designs, which will be exhibited to the public in May. Following jury deliberation and selection of the winning design, competition results will be announced to the public in June.

The historic 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.
