North Toronto Station, a neo-classical Beaux Arts train station

Project Information

North Toronto Station, a Neo-classical Beaux-Arts train station built in 1915, stands as the remarkable culmination of a comprehensive three-year restoration by Woodcliffe. The complexity of the North Toronto Station restoration and renovation was extraordinary. Woodcliffe worked with three-dimensional property lines including an active rail line above, a subway below, and an adjoining public space, all while the lead tenant, The LCBO, maintained operations. The restoration integrates modern architectural additions with the existing heritage structure. A formal entrance and façade were added north of the rail tracks while a pedestrian-friendly retail space was introduced beneath the railway.

The modern additions seamlessly extended the historical charm and essence of the Beaux-Arts train station by employing a contemporary and innovative design methodology. North Toronto Station is celebrated as one of the most prominent landmarks in the City of Toronto, and its restoration garnered numerous awards and accolades.
