The Bell Gairdner Estate, a Mississauga heritage landmark originally built back in 1938, was in dire need of restoration. Located along the shores of Lake Ontario, the city decided to convert the building and surrounding lands into a public park. When it came time to select a firm to lead the retrofit, the City of Mississauga chose ATA for its extensive experience with similar projects, including the recent rehabilitation of the historic Merchant’s Bank. ATA’s winning proposal ensured that the grounds would be suitable for various events (see rendering above). Restoration to the original structure has already begun with excitement building for the grand opening slated for summer 2013.
