The Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation (TWRC) has launched a design competition to bring a fresh new perspective to the 3.5-kilometre-long Central Waterfront. Five teams from around the world have been selected to participate in this six-week-long design competition. The result of this competition including design proposals and models will be presented in a series of public exhibitions and a presentation from each of the design team.
Please come and join TWRC and the five design teams for this event from 6:30pm-9:00pm on Monday, May 15, 2006 at BCE Place, Allen Lambert Galleria, 181 Bay Street in Toronto.
The exhibition will run from May 15-26, 2006 at BCE Place, Harbourfront Centre and selected shopping centres in Toronto. More details will follow.
This project is anticipated to result in both a vision for the length of the water’s edge promenade and Queen’s Quay Boulevard from Stadium Road to Parliament Street as well as detailed designs for the heads of the slips. The purpose of the exhibition is to obtain public responses to the five designs before the jury convenes to select a winning proposal. The implementation of the winning scheme will initiate with the construction of the heads of the slips which is anticipated to have a groundbreaking in the fall of 2006.
