This year we are lucky to showcase the recent completed Broadview Hotel project by DesignAgency. This historical landmark of Toronto has been transformed and restored into an east end treasure. The building was completed in 1863 and originally functioned as a hotel before numerous switches to both ownership and management. The building as last purchased by the Street Car Development group which brought new life for the location and the area. DesignAgency worked closely with the owner to create a narrative and bring the vision of the Hotel from concept to reality. DesignAgency is one of Canada’s leading design studio, working internationally with many high profile clients; such as Generator Hostels, Shangri La Hotel and much more. The award winning design studio’s philosophy is that all of there work requires leadership, focus and commitment.
