Roughly the same size as Canary Wharf (London) and Battery Park (New York City), East Bayfront is the jewel in the waterfront crown of the City of Toronto. It is within walking distance of downtown Toronto, several established neighbourhoods and many entertainment and cultural attractions. This project rejuvenates the existing waterfront to 1.5 km of a continuous water’s edge promenade and as a prime site to attract new business ventures to the City. It also includes 7,000 residential units.
The project was phased and consists of the new Sugar Beach, Dockside Promenade, Sherbourne Common, Sherbourne Street south extension from Lake Shore Blvd. to Queens Quay East, and the Public Realm.
The East Bayfront is the Prime Real Estate in the City and a Recreational destination. The Sherbourne Common Pavilion was built to achieve the LEED Gold Certification.
