Our new blue edge is where the city meets the water. Where previously underused and unappreciated space becomes a priceless public asset, accessible to everyone.
Waterfront Toronto is building the largest urban revitalization project in North America. We are bringing together the most innovative approaches to sustainable development, excellence in urban design, real estate development, leading technology infrastructure and the delivery of important public policy objectives.
We’re rethinking, reimagining and redefining what the waterfront can be, and working to create a world model for urban space. Our priorities are simple. We put people first and
reconnect them with the waterfront. We emphasize parks and public spaces, and we design in a way that’s environmentally and economically sustainable.
Waterfront Toronto’s approach is strategic revitalization as opposed to simple real estate development.
Our revitalization represents an unparalleled opportunity to re-establish a positive, meaningful relationship with the waterfront and to transform the waterfront into a marvellous public destination with vibrant public and cultural spaces capable of providing a variety of experiences and amenities. At the
same time, the waterfront must be a highly local environment featuring dynamic, sustainable, mixed-use neighbourhoods with strong connections to adjacent communities. The quality-of-life experience on the waterfront will draw a new generation of employment to it, and help to guarantee that Toronto’s waterfront is recognized locally and internationally as a premier environment in which to live, work and play.
The revitalization of Toronto’s waterfront represents nothing less than an unprecedented opportunity to literally change the face of Toronto and, ultimately, to redefine how the world perceives our city, province and country.
