2017 Awards

The City's 2017 Livable City Design Awards celebrate excellence in urban design and architecture by recognizing exemplary projects that have been completed over the last three years. These projects demonstrate creativity and innovation, make use of quality materials, and are mindful of environmental and accessibility concerns.

Any original project that was completed in Kingston between Jan. 1, 2014 and Dec. 31, 2016 and is visible or accessible to the public was eligible for entry. Nominations for the 2017 Livable City Design Awards are now closed.
