Toronto Urban Design Award — Victoria Park Transit Plaza and Bus Terminal

Award of Excellence - Public Buildings in Context, 2013 (Jury Report)

"Until recently, Victoria Park subway station and bus terminal suffered from a variety of ills, none as glaring as how user-unfriendly it was to its customers. Now, the station should be held up as an example of how the TTC should modernize its transit hubs. Among the improvements are an attractive streetscape at the main entrance, added windows to provide more natural light, widened pedestrian pathways, new public art and more pedestrian connections to the station."

Toronto Urban Design Award — College Street Narrowing

Honourable Mention - Visions and Master Plans, 2001 (Jury Comments)

"Some of the simplest urban design strategies are often the most effective. The College Street plan would restore pedestrian scale through properly scaled sidewalks, street furniture and trees: simple ingredients that go a long way toward making our cities more livable." - Peter Ellis

"This project recognizes that the main streets of Toronto are the "public living rooms" for the adjacent residential neighbourhoods, and the importance of their urban design qualities. The fundamental strategies of this project are good enough that they should also be tested for applicability to other similar conditions in the city." - David Oleson
