The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada honours Canada's National Ballet School and Radio City with the 2008 National Urban Design Award for Urban Architecture:
"The NBS/Radio City development establishes a model for the harmonious co-existence of heritage and contemporary architecture and demonstrates broadly recognized urban planning principles that link the level of street life and diversity of activities to the level of safety in a neighbourhood. The original goals were to catalyse the revitalization of Jarvis Street, Toronto's first upper class residential neighbourhood which experienced long term economic decline since World War II; to introduce much-needed home ownership options into a high density rental market; and to stimulate community pride through its award-winning architecture."
