Transformation of the Toronto waterfront

Lawrence Loh sends some good news from the Toronto waterfront: “Check out this new video on what Toronto’s formerly terrible waterfront at Queen’s Quay is going to look like this summer!”

Queens Quay was once ranked among the world’s worst streets. One magazine declared that it was “perhaps the ugliest urban waterfront boulevard of any major city.”

In a little more than two months – mark your calendars for June 19, 2015 – Queens Quay will officially reopen. Soon we’ll be strolling along the revitalized Queens Quay’s generous pedestrian promenade and riding our bikes down the new Martin Goodman Trail.
