Canadian firm Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg has been chosen for the proposed $68m revitalisation of Lansdowne Park in Ontario, Canada.

The design involves the conversion of the historic Horticulture Building into a retail area but will have to scrap certain elements to meet costs.

An $8m island that was to be built to maintain the heritage status of the waterway will be scrapped and a $14m pedestrian bridge across the canal will be moved to another section of the canal.

The practice beat five design firms to win the scheme.
