About the Waterfront ReConnect Design Competition

Designed for a car-centric era, Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway has long served as a street-level barrier between the city’s core and a blossoming Waterfront. But, as the city recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, what if this obstacle could be re-imagined as a vital point of connection? In collaboration with the City of Toronto, the Waterfront BIA, and the Toronto Downtown West BIA, The Bentway is proud to present the Waterfront ReConnect Design Competition. This competition hopes to engage professional Canadian artists and designers who will be engaged in the development of creative interventions that re-imagine the experience of two key intersections under the Gardiner – York Street and Simcoe Street.

Organizer The Bentway

Organizer of Waterfront ReConnect Design Competition Information Session

The Bentway is a unique and innovative public space that will transform an area underneath Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway into a new gathering place for our city’s growing population. Stretching from Strachan Avenue to Bathurst Street, this trail and series of public spaces will knit together seven neighbourhoods – Exhibition Place, Liberty Village, Niagara, Fort York Neighbourhood, Bathurst Quay, Wellington Place and CityPlace – and become a gateway to the waterfront, while providing access to important attractions and destinations – from the Budweiser Stage to the Rogers Centre and Harbourfront Centre. This dynamic new urban corridor will activate the community with a continuous multi-use trail providing access to year-round activities and events, including gardens, a skating rink, recreational amenities, public markets, public art, special exhibitions, festivals, theatre and musical performances and more.
