Five shortlisted teams announced in Etobicoke Civic Centre design competition






The former Westwood Theatre Lands, the proposed site of the new Etobicoke Civic Centre Precinct and Etobicoke Civic Centre.
Build Toronto, the City of Toronto?s real estate and development investment corporation, has selected five shortlisted teams to submit their proposals to design a new Etobicoke Civic Centre and square as part of the Westwood Theatre Lands redevelopment.
The five shortlisted design teams, in alphabetical order, are:

Adamson Associates Architects | Henning Larsen Architects | PMA Landscape Architects
Diamond Schmitt Architects | Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates
KPMB Architects | West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture
Montgomery Sisam Architects | Adjaye Associates | OLIN
Moriyama & Teshima Architects | MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects | FORREC Ltd.

The international design competition attracted submissions from various cities. The five shortlisted firms comprise of teams from Brooklyn, Copenhagen, London (U.K.), Philadelphia, Rotterdam and Toronto. The second stage of the competition kicks off this month as the five teams begin to work on developing a vision for the new civic landmark.
?This is the beginning of an exciting project to design an entirely new community with a civic centre and public space, that will also allow us to streamline the six points intersection and make this the heart of Etobicoke,? says Chair of the Board and Councillor David Shiner (Ward 24 Willowdale). ?As stewards of public land, Build Toronto and the City are driving the focus on City-Building by exploring creative and innovative design ideas and bringing them to the forefront of this transformation.? The design component of the process will be judged by a jury of leaders in the fields of planning, urban design, architecture and landscape architecture. Adjudication is scheduled to take place in late April 2017, following a public presentation of the final design submissions.
?Through the international design competition, industry jury selection and public input, we are all helping to shape the new Etobicoke Civic Centre ? which is exactly what civic centres represent,? says Board Director and local Councillor Justin Di Ciano (Ward 5 Etobicoke Lakeshore) who represents the area. ?This will not only become the new heart of Etobicoke, but it will also create a renewed area of activity, commerce and civic space for the local community and the City.?
The goal of the Etobicoke Civic Centre design competition is to develop a vision for a new integrated civic hub at the southwest corner of Dundas and Kipling, including a civic square, civic offices, a library, a daycare centre and a recreation centre.
“This is a once in a generational opportunity to create a new urban centre in the heart of Etobicoke,? says Jennifer Keesmaat, Chief Planner and Executive Director, City of Toronto. ?The goal is design excellence, and we have the right process in place to achieve it.”
The City of Toronto is undergoing a $77 million infrast...
