Media Advisory - Toronto’s revitalized Union Station goes green
The City of Toronto and Sustainable Buildings Canada are holding a “greening charrette” to brainstorm ideas for the greening of the revitalized Union Station.

In the fall of 2007, Council adopted the recommended approach for the revitalization of Union Station. While planning moves forward, staff are also considering the City’s commitment to being a leader in greening City facilities. This charrette will generate innovative and realistic ideas to increase the energy and environmental performance of the revitalized station.

The recommendations from this event will be taken into consideration when moving forward with the final plans for the revitalized Union Station. Media are invited to attend for the presentations on the groups’ recommendations.

Date: Monday, May 12
Time: 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: Metro Hall café, 55 John St., (main level of Metro Hall, John St. entrance)

Due to limited capacity at the location, media are encouraged to register by emailing Samantha Reynolds at
