Inspiration realized

Yonge Sheppard Centre

Location: Toronto, Canada

This 1970s vintage internally-oriented complex felt inaccessible due to split-level entrances, dim lighting and confusing circulation, but has now been reinvented with an activated retail streetscape, naturally-lit atriums and a renovated interior. The Yonge Sheppard Centre redevelopment exemplifies the role that design can play in repositioning aging real estate assets repurposing and increasing value.
