In this article, the writer examines waterfront development in Canada's largest city. In particular, the writer looks at the history of waterfront development in Toronto since the 1970s and likewise looks at how the current waterfront is falling short as a tourist attraction and as a business entrepot. Further, the writer also discusses what options are available to the city at the present time.
From the Paper:"Finally, the ensuing paper will offer a suggestion as to which course of action makes the most "sense" for Toronto as it strives to produce a twenty-first century waterfront. In the final analysis, a re-modeling of Queen's Quay and a concomitant effort to remove the Gardiner from the shore front are two critical parts of a large effort (and cost-effective) project which will make the lake shore more cost-effective and allow Toronto to reclaim some of the "green space" along the waterfront that has been lost in recent decades."
