About This Project

RJC with MDL undertook an extensive site inspection of the silos (see photos). RJC reviewed and reported on the current structural conditions and feasibility for stabilization of the structures and MDL with Historica Research reviewed all previous heritage legislation and assessments and provided an updated report on the heritage value of these iconic silos on Toronto’s waterfront.
