The History

An iconic landmark in the community.

The Collingwood Terminals can be seen for miles and symbolizes the twin engines of commerce in the early 1900s, agriculture and shipping. It was constructed in 1929 by Collingwood Terminals Limited and features 52-grain silos. This engineering feat was accomplishmed in only thirteen days. The terminals stored up to two million bushels of grain that were transported by ship and by rail and could handle 30,000 bushels of grain per hour. In 1993, after operating continuously for 64 years, Collingwood Terminals Ltd. ceased operations.

The Vision

Redevelopment of
Heritage Drive

Our aim is to re-develop Heritage Drive with significant public realm enhancements and access, preservation and adaptive reuse of the Terminals including a full-service hotel, restaurant and event space, and a residential component to the east of the Terminals. The concept public realm enhancements activate the harbourfront year-round and include access to the shoreline/ water, trails, lookouts and boardwalks, public space for retail and most notably, the proposal introduces public access to the Terminal building itself in ways that were not previously possible. The current “bin floor” atop the Terminals is envisioned as a publicly accessible feature with sweeping views of Georgian Bay and the Town, including historic downtown Collingwood. The proposed design concept incorporates leading green technologies and aligns with the Town’s commitment to sustainability, while honouring the built heritage of the site.
