Ontario Place tenders revitalization of historic pavilions

Ontario Place Corporation has issued a request for bids for the interior renovation of its Pavilion Pods to turn them into multipurpose event spaces.

The Pavilion Pods at Ontario Place were originally built in 1971 as multimedia exhibition spaces and a restaurant. The five steel and aluminum Pavilion Pods, which overlook Lake Ontario, were designed by Eb Zeidler.

They are regarded as part of Ontario's cultural heritage landscape and seen as holding significant historical value. The transformation is part of a broader vision to revitalize Ontario Place into a year-round waterfront destination.

"I am thrilled to see the great strides our government has made in transforming Ontario Place and bringing people back to this spectacular waterfront destination,” said minister of tourism, culture and sport Eleanor McMahon. “We are building on our progress by moving forward with the renovation phase of two iconic heritage Pods to transform them into flexible event spaces. With a beautiful view of Lake Ontario and downtown Toronto, these Pods are a pillar of the waterfront site.”

The request for bids can be found online at https://ontariotenders.bravosolution.com/ and closes on 5 February 2018 at 11am EST.
