About project

Adamson Associates Architects and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners won a Design Competition to revitalize the North Building of Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market Complex.

Replacing the existing building, completed in 1967, the project preserves the Farmer’s Market on the ground floor, while the upper three floors are dedicated to the city’s Provincial courts, with glass walkways linking the two sides of the building.

In the centre of the building, a five-storey high atrium will frame the market to the south and the historic St. Lawrence Hall to the north. Underground parking for 250 vehicles will also be available. The revitalized structure allows market shoppers to view life and activities on Front Street, Jarvis Street, and on Market Lane Park from within its glass atrium, effectively creating an open indoor market that resembles a fresh, outdoor setting.

Sustainable features include a new green roof and a geothermal system to make the North Market a model for energy efficiency and sustainability.
