Bringing Great Design and New Infrastructure to Queens Quay

Queens Quay – Toronto’s main waterfront street – is being completely transformed. From an uninspiring thoroughfare to a beautiful waterfront boulevard. The new Queens Quay will connect waterfront destinations and help create a lively and active urban waterfront. But the makeover isn’t limited to above ground improvements. Much of the construction on Queens Quay is for new underground infrastructure – the municipal services we need but rarely think much about. In this video, we peel back the pavement to show what we’re building underground and how that is coordinated with landscape work. Waterfront construction is complex but despite the challenges the Revitalization of Queens Quay remains on schedule for June 2015.
