How does an abandoned and derelict brick factory turn into a state-of-the-art environmental community centre while preserving heritage, respecting the environment, ensuring public safety, creating space for inclusive community programming and incorporating leading-edge green design features?

After years of planning, collaborating with government and leading architects and designers — we’re all about to find out.

Stay tuned to this page and follow our work step-by-step. We’ll give you the inside scoop with weekly updates and photos on this $55-million project.

If you are down on location enjoying the beautiful Don Valley Brick Works Park you can find plans, designs and other news on these glass doors on the west side of Building 1 (the two storey red brick building on the west side of the property that also has the washrooms).

As we go, this page will grow to include plans, documents, photos and other goodies to educate, inspire and give you a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes details necessary for a project of this scale and complexity.
