Globe and Mail in December.

The Globe and Mail selects the Queen Richmond Centre West as one of the best in City Building in Toronto 

We are proud to announce that the Queen Richmond Centre West was chosen as one of the seven examples of "The best of city building in Toronto" by the Globe and Mail. Writer and Architectural Columnist Alex Bozikovic on the project:

"The result is a win-win," he writes,
"a preserved streetscape and a solid contemporary building,
all at the same time."

Sweeny&Co is honoured for the project's recognition. The inception of the idea that led to the Queen Richmond Centre West was inherently urban and in the spirit of City Building: Allied Properties REIT, the owners and developers, and Sweeny&Co were looking into ways to intensify an under-utilized site, rehabilitating the existing urban fabric and creating new, high-performance commercial spaces. The result was a grand urban gesture that addresses some of our favourite urban high notes:

  1. meeting an opportunity to increase the "mix" in a rapidly-developing mixed-use neighbourhood,
  2. using only the best building technologies that contribute positively to human health, comfort and wellness, and
  3. creating/continuing a wondrous streetscape environment in and around our buildings that can be enjoyed by everybody.

For us, City Building is a means to contribute to the urban Quality of Life. All of our projects are guided by our mission to provide the best environments for humans to live, work and play.

The Globe and Mail about the Queen Richmond Centre West: "Toronto office complex defies gravity with structural gymnastics"

Earlier in December, the Globe and Mail published an in-depth article on the Queen Richmond Centre West, highlighting the common desire by all parties to design, develop, build and operate a world-class commercial facility in the recently-booming Entertainment District of Toronto.

The Annual Sweeny&Co Dinner Party was hosted at the Redstone Winery. 

Another Sweeny&Co project that recently opened its doors was Redstone Winery, which also was the venue for our annual company party this year. Developed as a sister-project by renowned Niagara-based wine aficionado Moray Tawse (also owner of Tawse Winery), the winery was conceived as a total convergence of wine, food, environment and architecture. We would like to thank Moray and his superb Redstone Winery team for graciously hosting us this year!

A wonderful place to visit all year around; it is an especially enchanting experience during the darker, colder months where you can enjoy the best wine and food within the intimate envelopes of the warm, glowing interiors of this innovative building. Stay tuned for an in-depth account of the project in one of our future newsletters!
