THE NEW ‘NORTH’ SAINT LAWRENCE MARKET IS GOING UP AND IT’S WELL UNDERWAY.

Lawrence Hall and both the North and South Market buildings have served as landmarks for more than 200 years and remain the most valuable of our city’s historical complexes. Work continues on replacing Toronto’s 1968-built North St Lawrence Market structure.  It’s been wearing out.  The new creation by Rogers Stirk Harbour+ Partners will replace the old former one-storey North structure with new multi-levels. The South building opened in 1845 as Toronto’s City Hall and municipal complex contains a major public market, and in an upper level there’s an art gallery (which may or may not always be open). You’ll find the Saint Lawrence Market Complex, North and South on the southwest corner of Front and Lower Jarvis Streets.  <Photo below shows the completely finished North structure as it will be>
