Quayside will be a dynamic, inclusive and resilient community that plays a pivotal role in reorienting the city towards Lake Ontario.

This area of our waterfront represents an extraordinary opportunity to create one of Canada’s most sustainable low-carbon communities, serving people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and incomes. A place that is inviting and lively year-round, providing retail, restaurants, entertainment and cultural experiences to seamlessly fuse the city to the water. 

Quayside is a 4.9-hectare area of land at the foot of Parliament Street. It’s well positioned to be a vibrant hub, linking St. Lawrence, the West Don Lands, the Distillery District, Bayside, and the future Villiers Island. The geographic heart of this cluster of neighbourhoods and the gateway to the Parliament Slip, Quayside will help the area become more than the sum of its parts.

On March 10, 2021, Waterfront Toronto initiated its search for a development partner for Quayside. The first step was to issue a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to identify potential development proponents with the necessary experience, design portfolio and financial resources. You can read this backgrounder for more information about the RFQ or download the RFQ and addenda here.


From the pool of firms that responded to the RFQ, Waterfront Toronto has selected four proponents to participate in a second stage and submit full proposals for the development of Quayside through a Request for Proposals process. We expect to select a Preferred Proponent in early 2022 and contract negotiations will be completed later in the year.
