This category honours owners who have undertaken projects to restore or adapt buildings or structures that have been in existence for 40 years or more or are included on the City of Toronto’s Inventory of Heritage Properties. In addition to the quality of craftsmanship, appropriateness of materials, and the use of sound conservation principles, the jury considers how well the project meets current needs while maintaining the integrity of the original design vision.
The Heritage Toronto Awards celebrate outstanding contributions to the promotion and conservation of the city’s heritage in five categories: Book, Short Publication, Media, William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship, and Community Heritage.
The Heritage Toronto Awards and Kilbourn Lecture will be held at Koerner Hall on the evening of October 13, 2015. Tickets can be purchased online at performance.rcmusic.ca, by phone at (416) 408-0208, or in person at the Royal Conservatory box office.
