Welcome to our new blue edge, one of the world's most significant waterfront revitalization projects. Given the size and scope of this undertaking, Waterfront Toronto has divided the area into several key project areas to facilitate planning and construction.
Project areas include East Bayfront and West Don Lands the first two new waterfront communities that are already underway. Built on former industrial sites, these new mixed-use neighbourhoods will deliver an exciting new kind of downtown, sustainable urban living.
Planning for the Port Lands, is also well underway. Decades of infilling on what was once one of the largest wetlands on Lake Ontario created the 356-hectare Port Lands. The Port Lands will feature innovative mixed-use communities around the Keating Channel and a newly naturalized mouth of the Don River. Reconfiguring the mouth of the Don River will provide the flood protection required to develop the rest of the Port Lands area.
In addition to the new communities under development, Waterfront Toronto projects also include the revitalization of well-established areas such as the central waterfront and a variety of parks and public spaces across the wider waterfront area. Plans for the central waterfront, which are already coming to life, link major waterfront destinations, create new public spaces and give Toronto a new grand waterfront boulevard. New parks and public spaces in the wider waterfront area from Mimico in the west to Port Union in the east help people reconnect to both the city and the lake.
