Calling all architects! City of Toronto launches design competition to replace St. Lawrence Market’s North Building
Join Mayor David Miller, Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale) and the local St. Lawrence community at the official launch of the architectural design competition to find the best design for a new, vibrant North Market building.

Date: November 12
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: St. Lawrence Market North Building, 92 Front St.E.
Refreshments compliments of the Market’s merchants will be served.

Over the past 200 years, the historic St. Lawrence Market Complex, made up of St. Lawrence Hall, the South Market and North Market buildings, have served as Toronto’s social centre, City Hall and premier marketplace. The redevelopment of the St. Lawrence Market North Property is 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.

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. Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. 2009 marks the 175th anniversary of Toronto's incorporation as a city. Toronto's government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
