Harbour (Toronto, Ont.)
The Gardiner Expressway is transformed into a grand boulevard with improved north-south connections.
Civic spaces, housing, schools, galleries, markets and a botanical garden weave over, under and through the Gardiner Expressway.
The spaces between the Gardiner Expressway take on a new life, reimagined as places for people rather than as obstacles to the waterfront.
In this proposed design, the area between the Gardiner and the rail corridor becomes the site of a linear park with cultural interventions like an outdoor cinema.
The proposed design would replace the Gardiner Expressway with a tunnel that creates new parks and public spaces.
