<WATERFRONT EAST as it looks today>. TORONTO’s eastern waterfront may soon be in revival mode. SIDEWALK LABS, a sister company of GOOGLE and a division of ALPHABET INC., has become very interested in developing the city’s aquatic border lands. So much so, that upon final approval SIDEWALK will invest $50-million (US) in a year-long planning process for 12-acres (4.9 hectares) – the so-called Quayside Project. Plans are to eventually expand that to a greater investment over a much larger area.
Should all this happen, the development would contain 3.3-million square feet of residential, office and commercial space – as well as new headquarters for Google Canada.
