Allies & Morrison targets North America expansion

Allies & Morrison - Christie Cookie factory site in Humber Bay Shores, Toronto

Practice lands Toronto masterplan on back of King’s Cross experience

Allies & Morrison has won a major masterplanning competition in Toronto that is set to be its first built project in North America.

The practice is hoping the 11ha Humber Bay Shores project will be the job that unlocks the continent for them after three recent attempts to break in ground to a halt.

Partner Alfredo Caraballo predicted that with so many post-industrial cities in North America needing masterplanning expertise, the firm would open an office out there “in the near future”. This would be its only office outside the UK after the Doha studio shut after its 35ha Msheireb project completed.
