The city is seeking public feedback on the concept design for its Junction East project.

The Junction East project will house the new central library/art gallery. The city has also revealed potential partners Sudbury Theatre Centre and Sudbury Multicultural and Folk Arts Association, which would also set up shop in the new building.

As part of an extensive engagement campaign that took place earlier this year, the city and WZMH Architects gained feedback from the community and key stakeholders, said the city in a news release. That feedback has now been translated into a conceptual design for the facility. 

At this phase, the team looks at the required spaces in the building, how they function and their relationship to each other.

The public is invited to review the conceptual design and provide input at a virtual open house on Wednesday, July 21, from 6-7:30 p.m. More information is available here

The community can also view and provide feedback on the design here from July 19 to July 30.

Expected to open in 2024, Junction East will include the Greater Sudbury Public Library Main Branch and the Art Gallery of Sudbury, located on the east side of Shaughnessy Street in the downtown. 

The city and WZMH are examining the potential to integrate the Sudbury Theatre Centre and Sudbury Multicultural and Folk Arts Association into the project as well.
