Adaptive Reuse

Here is an example of a great new adaptive reuse project, in true Canadian spirit: in downtown Toronto, the iconic Maple Leaf Gardens, previously home to the city’s hockey team for 68 years, reopened today after sitting unused for over 10 years. As a designated heritage building with great sentimental value, its transformation was a long and complicated process with many twists and turns. It has now become a flagship location for a national supermarket chain and an athletic facility for the nearby Ryerson University, while retaining elements and tokens of its original use.
