Old Buildings Filled with New Ideas
By applying the best, most innovative thinking to the site, Evergreen is able to respect the heritage buildings of the past, address the human and ecological needs of the present, and promote a healthier, more sustainable approach to creating the cities of the future.
Evergreen Brick Works is at the centre of Toronto’s industrial and architectural heritage and includes one of the five most important geological sites in North America. To preserve the rich heritage embedded in the site, we are working closely with the City of Toronto Heritage Preservation Services and the Ontario Heritage Trust. Evergreen has also worked with heritage consultants ERA Architects to complete a Heritage Impact Assessment, a Conservation Strategy, and a Detailed Construction Plan.
Evergreen Brick Works will use art and interactive exhibits to tell visitors the story of the brick making process, the workers’ experience and the history of the site.
