Andrea Gabor, 1952-2015

Partner, Urban Strategies Inc.

Andrea Gabor was an urban planner and one of the earliest Partners at Urban Strategies Inc., where she led many award-winning projects. Spanning a career of over thirty years, Andrea’s projects have shaped the fabric of Toronto and cities around the world. Recognized for her great contributions to the field of urban planning, in 2007 she was elected to the College of Fellows of the Canadian Institute of Planners. Those who worked with her will remember Andrea as a true champion – a driven, dedicated planner who brought passion, humour and joy to professional life. She was a role model for all who had the privilege of working with her, including many on the ULI Toronto Championship team. Andrea is missed, but she will continue to serve as an example of professionalism, integrity, and excellence in the field of urban planning.
