Event description

Description

In 2001, the governments of Toronto, Ontario and Canada gave Waterfront Toronto a mandate to revitalize 2,000 acres of Toronto’s waterfront. Toronto’s waterfront revitalization project is almost unequalled in size on a world scale. It’s larger than Lower Manhattan south of Houston Street, and four times the size of Monaco. To get a sense of its proportions on a local scale, the total area being redeveloped is roughly the size of Toronto’s downtown core.

Transforming the lands by the lake into a connected waterfront with new neighborhoods, sustainable transportation infrastructure, urban spaces, and bridges is a long-term exercise in planning and partnerships. Projects already completed include the Wavedecks, Corktown Common, Sugar Beach and the revitalized Queens Quay. In 2017, the three orders of government announced funding for Port Lands Flood Protection, a $1.25-billion project that will unlock over one third of the waterfront for development. Additional priority projects on the waterfront include the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Quayside, also referred to as Sidewalk Toronto

This event will feature a buffet dinner at the legendary Cherry Street Bar-B-Que, followed by a presentation from three world-class speakers on the past, present, and not-so-distant future of Toronto’s Waterfront. These presenters include David Kusturin (Chief Project Officer, Waterfront Toronto), Meggen Janes, M.Sc., P.Eng. (Director of Soil and Groundwater Management & Brownfield Approvals, Waterfront Toronto), and Joey Herrington, M.Env.Sc., PMP (Senior Project Manager, Waterfront Toronto).
