Massey Hall Renovations

Massey Hall recently underwent the most significant renovation in its 125 year history. The Revitalization protects and celebrates Massey Hall’s heritage and built a lasting legacy for artists and fans. After a comprehensive, years-long restoration, Toronto’s legendary Massey Hall is now welcoming back performers and fans.

The project restored and renewed both the interior and exterior of this National Historic Site, improved patron amenities and accessibility, opened two new music venues, and saw the return of the original, 125 year-old stained glass windows. The revitalization project involved rebuilding the iconic music venue’s stage, the addition of a new seven-storey tower and even improving on the old bathrooms.

Overseeing the careful restoration and renovation of Massey Hall was Toronto’s KPMB Architects.

Walters was proud to be a part of restoring this heritage landmark.

Overcoming Challenges

Being a heritage restoration, weaving heavy steel through the existing building needed to be carefully and creatively executed. In addition, there was no storage on site, so it was a challenge getting material into the building.
