The following is a sponsored story for the Toronto of the Future Architecture and Real Estate Showcase.
Now in its second year, the Toronto of the Future exhibit promises to give attendees a unique view of the changing face of the city by bringing together the work of leaders in real estate, urban development and architecture. The biennial event, slated to begin later this month, is based on the successful Montréal du Futur exhibit launched in 2006 and is co-hosted by the City of Toronto’s Planning Division and Oxford Properties Group.
The free exhibit will be held from June 26th to 30th inside downtown Toronto’s Metro Hall. It will feature 3D scale models and renderings that will give visitors a glimpse of the commercial, residential and infrastructure developments set to reshape the city and its skyline. Key architects, contractors and developers will also be on hand to answer questions and provide virtual presentations of projects planned, approved and under construction.
A VIP opening ceremony and cocktail reception will be held on Monday, June 26th at 6pm attended by sponsors, exhibitors and city officials, including Jennifer Keesmaat, Toronto’s Chief City Planner.
“Toronto is a leading city in the Western Hemisphere with respect to the unprecedented scale of urbanization, redevelopment and renewal we see today,” says Keesmaat. “We expect this trend of rapid change to continue and as a result we need to continue to push our thinking with respect to what the city could become. As a result, the timing is excellent to present Toronto of the Future.”
