HARMONY-VILLAGE-101 City Core Developments revealed the winning design for their Harmony Village Lake Simcoe project at an event last Friday.

RAW Design/The Planning Partnership in collaboration with Diamond Schmitt emerged victorious in the competition that had four acclaimed architecture firms propose designs for the incredible new mixed use waterfront development in Barrie.

The competition was launched in early August. A panel of high profile judges reviewed each design and the voting was open to the public as well.

“We wanted the design to be something that the community could be proud of, which was why we strongly encouraged the community to vote on the design,” said Jack Pong, CEO and President of City Core, in a press release.
