ULI Toronto is pleased to announce that Les Klein, Co-Founder and Principal of Quadrangle, one of our city’s most active and successful architecture and design firms, has been appointed as Chair.
Les’ work in innovative urban residential developments, the adaptive reuse of existing structures, broadcast facilities and dynamic environments for ideas-based entrepreneurs has been at the heart of Quadrangle’s growth and success. In 1994, Les was inducted into the College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and received the Order of Da Vinci Award from the Ontario Association of Architects in 2015. He has served on the OAA Complaints and Discipline Committees and represented Southwest Ontario on the National Board of Directors of the RAIC.
Les has also been a major supporter of ULI Toronto over many years, both as a major sponsor and volunteer, and most recently as a member of our Governance Committee. His commitment to the ULI Mission to “advance the responsible use of land” runs deep and is a signature of his career.
Under the direction of ULI Toronto Executive Director Richard Joy, Les will be tasked with continuing to inspire and connect ULI Toronto members with these successes, while broadening the discussions about progressive city building to a wider, community audience.
