allstream centre (toronto):
the art deco details in this former automotive factory - think tulip-shaped light fixtures and a frank lloyd wright inspired ballroom ceiling - add flair to the greenest conference facility in canada. the sprawling 160,000 square foot limestone fortress of environmentally responsible bells and whistles features a white reflective roof and is powered exclusively by renewable energy sources.
the tree hugger in me loves this place. the artsy-fartsy in me adores this place. everyone can certainly appreciate the walls and ceiling in the ballroom. with capacity of over 3800 for a banquet, i would have had no problems transitioning from wedding to reception.
i seriously wish i had found and looked into the possibility of this venue a year ago. not to say i don't love the venue we booked.. it would have been nice to have comparable options.
