Project Information

Situated within the historic St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood, Market Street occupies a location that was once at the centre of York’s Old Town. These properties offer pedestrian-friendly walkways and seasonal sidewalk seating, creating an unparalleled European-style setting unique to the City of Toronto. Market Street is a profound transformation of Toronto’s built landscape from the 1800s that seamlessly combines the sensitive restoration of three heritage structures with the addition of a new landmark building that completes the city block.
