MTA Principal, Phil Silverstein, led an engaging presentation on Limberlost Place for some Urban Land Institute (ULI) Spring Meeting participants, followed by a tour of the mass timber building which is currently under construction at George Brown College’s waterfront campus. Limberlost Place, a collaboration between Moriyama Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects, is years ahead of Toronto’s 2030 goals for sustainable design and performance for new developments and has become a global model for mass timber sustainable construction.
Phil is just one of the industry experts taking part in the ULI Spring Meeting – over the course of four days, knowledge was shared on topics ranging from capital markets and post-pandemic impacts to social equity and sustainability in the built world. We are very proud of the team’s work on Limberlost Place and are grateful for the opportunity to impart the lessons we have learned in designing this one-of-a-kind, highly sustainable, mass timber building. Thank you, PCL Construction, for your efforts in making this presentation and tour a success!
