Adam Vaughan (Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina), Brian Richardson, Vice President of
Brand Marketing and Communications at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, and Heather
McCrory, Regional Vice President and General Manager of The Fairmont Royal
York will officially kick-off a joint partnership to improve the Triangle
bordered by Front St. and two branches of University Ave.
Date: Thursday, November 8 (rain or shine)
Time: 3 p.m.
Location: Library Room, Fairmont Royal York, 100 Front St. W.
Followed by a photo-op at the Triangle on top of the Green P
parking lot, located north of Front St, between two branches
of University Ave.
To celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2007, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is
partnering with the City of Toronto to revitalize this small and prominent
location. With its corporate headquarters located in the downtown core and the
Fairmont Royal York close by, the redesigned Triangle will reflect Fairmont's
Canadian roots, its strong connection to Toronto's railway heritage as well as
its progressive environmental commitments while providing an oasis for local
workers and visitors.
The Triangle, scheduled to open in 2008, is being designed by the MBTW
Group. Over the winter, Fairmont will also work with the City to engage
Toronto schoolchildren in naming the new space.
This is one of the projects resulting from the City of Toronto's
Neighbourhood Beautification Program, which is designed to engage communities
to clean and beautify overlooked spaces. For more program information, please
