West Don Lands, Toronto, Ontario. Canada
New mixed-use precinct with an emphasis on urban living
The West Don Lands, located in the southeast corner of downtown Toronto, is envisioned as a new mixed-use precinct with an emphasis on urban living. The master plan was developed in a public process to understand the opportunities in the precinct. The project will inherit many of the unique qualities and characteristics of the precincts and neighbourhoods surrounding it, yet it will be distinguished by a major new park on the Don River. This park is designed with flood control devices and is a critical component of the restoration of the Don River and the creation of a major continuous greenway for the city.
The West Don Lands project is currently being implemented as a LEED ND project and is the site of the future Pan Am Games. For more information about the implementation of this precinct plan, please visit Waterfront Toronto.
