On October 4th, 2011, the annual Heritage Toronto Awards were held at the Koerner Concert Hall at the Royal Conservatory of Music. This annual event acknowledges accomplishments in heritage preservation and interpretation. There were hundreds of people there, including almost everyone of consequence involved with Toronto heritage. The concert hall is a stunning architectural venue in its own right and the event is one of the classiest that I've been able to attend as a remember of the Heritage Toronto board.
The TRHA won the Community Service Member's Choice Award in a field of seven nominees. This is voted on only by the thousand or so members of Heritage Toronto. It includes a cash award of $500. It should be noted that this award is not for the city or any of the professionals involved with our project, but for the community-based volunteers who make the TRHC function. Our volunteers have now been recognized by the city's heritage community and I was told that it was an overwhelming vote in our favour.
The roundhouse also won the William Greer Architectural Conservation & Craftsmanship Award of Excellence. This was given to the heritage architects, the IBI Group and the Roundhouse Development Corporation.
