From Parking Lot to Waterfront Destination


Waterfront Toronto and Harbourfront Centre transformed a former surface parking lot in the heart of Toronto’s waterfront into a dynamic new waterfront destination. The new public spaces created have revitalized the area and the design, by renowned landscape architects, Michael Van Valkenburgh and Associates, brings nature back to the site. Two new public squares now provide space for Harbourfront Centre’s arts and cultural programming. This work is part of Waterfront Toronto’s overall revitalization of the Toronto’s central waterfront which is creating new public spaces, linking major waterfront destinations and giving the city the grand waterfront boulevard it deserves.
