150 Symes Road is an event space in Toronto, Canada that was once a heritage incinerator. The updated industrial building is the perfect wedding venue for those seeking a blank slate that they can transform with personalized details.

Featuring copper ceiling elements, 150 Symes Road's stone-clad interior is stark and rustic in its overall look and feel. The building's exterior is also renovated yet retains its brick and Art Deco-themed facade. This unique building consists of a Grand Symes room on its ground level -- hosting up to 350 guests -- along with a Scarlett Room which is located on its second floor, with a capacity of 250 people.

Set to open in Fall 2017, this venue is a collaborative project by Viviana Kohon, Namita Tandon-Walsh and Caitie Yue. The developers also enlisted the help of Jedd Jones Architect Ltd. and Barbara Nelson Interior Design who helped put the project's finishing touches together. "We wanted to keep the site’s original beauty intact, while keeping with our own philosophy and vision," said Viviana Kohon about the new venue which is located in the heart of Toronto's historic Junction neighborhood.
