Kiln Building Redevelopment at Evergreen Brick Works

Kiln Building Redevelopment at Evergreen Brick Works

310 Spadina Avenue, Suite 100B Toronto, Ontario M5T 2E8
In the 1980s, a century of brick-making came to an end at a major industrial site in Toronto’s Don Valley. In 2010, this shuttered factory precinct was reborn as Evergreen Brick Works, Canada’s first large-scale community environmental centre. The former quarry had been transformed into a re-naturalized trails network. Over time, several of the site’s heritage buildings were repurposed for a host of community uses, and Evergreen’s headquarters – a mostly new structure – received LEED Platinum accreditation. The Kiln Building Redevelopment is much more than an ambitiously sustainable adaptive reuse: it preserves and re-invents a heritage industrial building situated in a flood plain. Without the innovative, varied, and extensive use of concrete, this project would not have been possible.
