CINTEC North America, designer and manufacturer of the CINTEC Reinforcing Anchor System, recently helped restore the Simpson Tower, a famous Canadian landmark, and one of the tallest buildings in Toronto.
Though the city of Toronto may only be known to many as a tertiary metropolis when it comes to well known or architecturally significant buildings in North America, Canada’s financial and cultural capital still has a great deal to offer if you know where to look. Toronto’s downtown skyline and nearby neighborhoods are, in fact, home to structures designed by some of the world’s most prominent architects, including Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Norman Foster, Will Alsop and I. M. Pei.
The architecture scene in Toronto is growing and thriving. The metropolitan landscape there has become more than the CN Tower, which is prominent in the city’s skyline. But a building doesn’t have to be tall to be beautiful, distinctive and worthy of a tourism board’s postcards. For example, the Young Centre for the Performing Arts in the city’s rejuvenated Distillery District is as beautiful a theatre as you likely are to find anywhere in North America.
