Kimberley’s SunMine is up for another award, this time a national award that recognizes brownfield reclamation, urban renewal and revitalization.
Sixteen projects, representing municipalities from across Canada, have been named as finalists for six main categories. The six Brownie Awards categories for which nominations are accepted are: REPROGRAM, REMEDIATE, REINVEST, REBUILD, RENEW and REACH OUT. There are three other awards that acknowledge the best small-scale project, best large-scale project, and best overall project for 2017; all projects are eligible for these three awards.
The 2017 Brownie Awards continue a long tradition of providing national recognition of the builders, innovators and visionaries who are dedicated to the rehabilitation of brownfield sites that dot cities and municipalities around the country. Founded in 2001 by the Canadian Urban Institute, the Brownie Awards acknowledge the innovative efforts of professionals to turn sites that were once contaminated, underutilized and undeveloped into productive residential and commercial projects that contribute to the growth of healthy communities across Canada.
The 2017 Brownie Award winners will be announced during a gala dinner at the Delta Hotels Toronto on Wednesday, November 22th, 2017. The keynote speaker for the evening will be David Kusturin, chief project officer at Waterfront Toronto. Please visit www.brownieawards.ca for details.
The SunMine is nominated under the Reinvest – Financing, Risk Management and Partnerships category. The other project nominated is Port Credit West in Mississauga.
