Blum Canada has won a 2021 Mississauga Urban Design Award for its new head office at 6775 Maritz Drive.
The Urban Design Awards started in 1981 and aim to inspire and celebrate design leaders who help raise the quality of life for residents by shaping Mississauga’s diverse cityscape. This year, there are 13 award winners - including three People’s Choice Award winners - that exemplify the theme of the Identity of Urban Places. These winners also showcase some of the very best public and private urban spaces that Mississauga has to offer.
"We are thrilled to see our new home recognized for its unique architectural design,” said Iris Sharofi, Blum Canada’s general manager.
“Congratulations to the team that designed, built and landscaped Blum Canada's new head office and fully-automated warehouse, in Mississauga: ADG Architectural Design Group Incorporated, Greyson Construction Limited, Landscape Planning Limited.”
“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and members of council, I would like to congratulate the winners of the 2021 Mississauga Urban Design Awards,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
“The awards are a great opportunity to recognize the designers, architects, developers and builders who have played a critical role in our efforts to build a world-class city. These private and public spaces beautify our city and provide much needed green spaces, public art and facilities for businesses and residents to enjoy.”
A jury of members from the design community and Ward 2 Councillor Karen Ras from the City of Mississauga selected the winners.
“The Mississauga Urban Design Awards is the longest-running awards program of its kind in Ontario,” said Andrew Whittemore, commissioner of planning and building.
“This year we are honoured to recognize these talented award-winners, who have all contributed to the unique identity and distinct character of Mississauga. I’d also like to thank the jury members for volunteering their time and expertise to help us recognize urban design excellence in Mississauga.”
