09T - Liberty Village Neighbourhood - The Evolution of Toronto's Employment Lands Tour

28 May 2020 2:15 PM - 4:45 PM



2.5 Unstructured Learning Hours

This Liberty Village Tour will showcase projects that exemplify the changing nature of the workplace in this historical Employment Lands neighbourhood. Preserving key heritage elements from the days of industrial use and merging them with modern sustainable elements, these buildings speak to the current needs of modern tech-savvy tenants while maintaining the existing character of the neighbourhood. This tour will explore the rich history of brick-and-beam factory buildings and how that typology has been reinvented with Ontario's first new mass timber project, 80 Atlantic.

The focus will be an architectural design in heritage areas, bringing forward the design thought process leading to the creation of several projects that thoughtfully connect old and new architecture.

All tours will depart from the Hotel X lobby. Please gather at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
