Raw spaces enable startups to sprout in Canada's Silicon Valley
from Globe and Mail
Not Moscow on the Hudson, but rather Toronto on Silver Lake? Or the Grand River, perhaps? A few blocks from Silver Lake and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, ON, a former police station at 14 Erb St. W. has been expertly transformed into an "innovation centre" by Toronto talents Raw Design. Completed in May of this year, the 1880 building began life as the Ontario Mutual Life Assurance Co. While its south and west façades had retained most of their pedimented and dentil-moulded charm, everything else was a hodgepodge of additions.
