Maple Leaf Gardens wins ACO award

The 2012 awards of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario (ACO) recognized ERA for our role in the adaptive reuse of Maple Leaf Gardens. This collaboration with Turner Fleischer and BBB Architects brings new contemporary uses to the historic site, which had been closed and shuttered for years.

ERA provided heritage consulting throughout the project and directed extensive masonry work, replacement of the steel industrial heritage windows, and the restoration of the Carlton Street marquee. In addition, ERA developed and guided an interpretation program that weaves stories of the site’s heritage throughout its contemporary spaces.

Many thanks to the ACO, Loblaw and Ryerson, and to all our collaborators and technicians. Congratulations to all the other winners, which you can read about in the ACO Newsletter.
