QUEENS QUAY IS BEING TURNED INTO A SPLENDID WATERFRONT GATEWAY BY WATERFRONT TORONTO

Photo: Nicola Betts It seems everyone wants to live in or visit TORONTO’s central waterfront. Space is at a premium, with multiple condos rising on the north side and a network of parks, promenades and cultural centres on the south. Queens Quay Boulevard is a 3.5 kilometre spine between the two.

WATERFRONT8      Over the last five years WATERFRONT TORONTO has been reconstructing Queens Quay, balancing the needs of residents, businesses, recreation and thousands of visitors. The goal is to turn the once dowdy street into a linear park, connecting wavedecks, theatres, a ferry terminal, cafes, bike trails, galleries, parks and gardens, with a streetcar line up the middle.
