City of Toronto to announce winner of St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition
Join Mayor David Miller, Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale) and the local St. Lawrence community as they officially reveal the winning design in the St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition.

Date: Monday, June 7
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: St. Lawrence Market North Building, 92 Front St. E.
Refreshments will be served.

The search is over for the best architectural design for a new, vibrant North Building in the iconic St. Lawrence Market Complex. Having the benefit of input from over 1,000 members of the public, a jury of seven distinguished members has unanimously selected a winning submission from five short-listed designs.

In May, five short-listed architectural teams each unveiled a design to 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.

Over the past 200 years, the historic St. Lawrence Market Complex, made up of St. Lawrence Hall, the South Market and North Market buildings, has served as Toronto’s social centre, city hall and premier marketplace.
