GEORGE ROBB ARCHITECT
A 2010 Niagara Community Design Award for Public Realm Improvements has been awarded by Niagara Region to the City of St. Catharines for the landscape design of the Former Lincoln County Courthouse by Wendy Shearer Landscape Architect, a division of MHBC.
Our design transformed a forgotten corner to a downtown destination where shoppers and workers gather for relaxation. The landscape design complements the historic building in its choice of materials and configuration. The historic iron fence was restored and reinstalled completing the enhancement of the site into "truly a shining example of public urban spaces".
