"The best of city building in Toronto"

Queen Richmond Centre West was featured as one of the seven examples of "The best of city building in Toronto" by the Globe and Mail. Writer and Architectural Columnist Alex Bozikovic on the project:

"The result is a win-win," he writes,"a preserved streetscape and a solid contemporary building, all at the same time."

Sweeny&Co is honoured for the project's recognition. The inception of the idea that led to the Queen Richmond Centre West was inherently urban and in the spirit of City Building: Allied Properties REIT, the owners and developers, and Sweeny&Co were looking into ways to intensify an under-utilized site, rehabilitating the existing urban fabric and creating new, high-performance commercial spaces. The result was a grand urban gesture that addresses some of our favourite urban high notes:

  1. meeting an opportunity to increase the "mix" in a rapidly-developing mixed-use neighbourhood,
  2. using only the best building technologies that contribute positively to human health, comfort and wellness, and
  3. creating/continuing a wondrous streetscape environment in and around our buildings that can be enjoyed by everybody.

For us, City Building is a means to contribute to the urban Quality of Life. All of our projects are guided by our mission to provide the best environments for humans to live, work and play.
