Old garbage plant could be Toronto's next hot event space
A former incinerator and waste transfer station might not sound like a sought-after venue, but once the heritage-designated Art Deco building at 150 Symes Rd., (which dates back to 1934) gets a makeover, it'll bring a huge event space to the Junction.
The Symes, located at 150 Symes Rd., is getting a makeover thanks to business partners Viviana Kohon, Namita Tandon-Walsh and Caitie Yue.
"It’s a restoration project, more than a building project," says Kohon of the ongoing construction work- led by Jedd Jones Architect Ltd. and Barbara Nelson Interior Design - that'll revamp the space, which sat untouched for years.
The goal is to keep some of the original architectural features intact.
