Abstract: 

In recent years, the City of Toronto has experienced an exponential development on its waterfront. From the extensive debates on the future of the Gardiner Expressway to the troubling condominiumization of the downtown core, these schemes all demonstrate a growing interest in restoring the city’s historical relationship to Lake Ontario.

However, as city planner Wayne C. Reeves explains in his book, Visions for the Metropolitan Toronto, the solutions of one day often become problems of the next, prompting a new round of vision-making and corrective action.

This thesis proposes a new kind of development that could address the present environmental issues plaguing the harbour by considering the city’s history and its current state as a commercial, financial, and industrial global centre. The proposal attempts to restore Toronto's connection with its most scenic and significant geographic feature.
