As part of the City’s Innovative Design Competition for Toronto’s Lower Don Lands, four teams have been selected as finalists for the competition. This will decide the future of the western part of the Portlands, and I recommend that everyone go and comment on it.
The dramatic changes proposed are a reflection of the tireless efforts of concerned citizens from Toronto-Danforth and around the city not to settle for a simple cosmetic change, but instead to develop a more natural river mouth with substantial wetlands.
Their proposals were presented at an exhibition launch and public forum Monday night. There is some discussion and a lot of pictures on Spacing Wire. For full information, or to submit comments, see the complete exhibition at BCE Place. The exhibition runs until Wednesday, April 25, but comments need to be submitted by this Friday, April 20.
Alternately, go to Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation or send them email at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 20.
