SGA/IBI Group Architects wins FCM award for transit station
DateMarch 6, 2013
TORONTO, ONTARIO – The renovation of the Victoria Park subway station and bus terminal in Toronto, by SGA/IBI Group Architects, has won the 2013 Federation of Canadian Municipalities Sustainable Communities Award in the transportation category.
The previous six bus-bay rooftop terminal was replaced with a street-level space that includes public art, new wall finishes, new signage, and improved lighting. A 5,000-sq m green roof, one of the largest in the city, covers the subway, concourse, and bus canopies. The roof collects and filters rain water and cools the station in the summer.
SGA/IBI Group Architects’ redesign also resulted in new bicycle lanes on Victoria Park Avenue, traffic lights for pedestrian crossing, and bike storage in the terminal.
“This is a symbol of the hard work, dedication and commitment from the client, community, city, contractor and the design team as a whole from beginning to end,” said Charlie Hoag, Project Architect at SGA/IBI Group Architects.
