Toronto: A Bold Vision for a Green Future

Toronto sometimes gets it right, and they continue to pick great schemes for our waterfront redevelopment. The winner of the Lower Don competition (covered here earlier) :Michael Van Valkenburgh (New York), Behnisch Architects (Los Angeles) and Ken Greenberg (Toronto). The scheme had the most radical redesign of the Don River, parks, housing for up to 100,000 people, streetcars, all the makings of a dense, urban green community.

Years to go before we can move in, the political rivalries and turf wars are as toxic as the soil. But what a grand start. ::Chris Hume in the Star
