Built in 1899, Toronto's Old City Hall is currently leased to the Province until 2016 and used primarily as a courthouse. CS&P lead a multidisciplinary consulting team to determine the best possible future use for this iconic heritage resource.

The scope of the study included assessing Old City Hall as a heritage property and its significance as a Toronto landmark. The facility was examined for appropriate future civic uses; the current state of repair work was reviewed; and the scope of renovations and potential costs required to accommodate any proposed future uses was determined. The study also involved a program review on the suitability of Old City Hall to house the Toronto Museum Project.
