Totalling 200,000 square feet, the repurposing of 85 Richmond Street West at the Richmond Adelaide Centre included the addition of approximately 20,000 square feet of new space that serves as an in-fill for an existing courtyard. The work included many updates to the existing building such as: mechanical and electrical systems, the design of common areas including new washrooms and significant changes to below grade access to the PATH system. Working with a heritage consultant, WZMH was involved in a significant reinstatement of heritage features on the two primary building facades. Other facades, originally dividing walls on former property lines, were treated with a contemporary large format porcelain tile which is a compatible cladding that has been integrated with the heritage facades.
