Last March, the City’s planning staff put out a report regarding a pedestrian and cycling bridge that would cross the rail corridor south of Front Street in between Portland Street and Draper Street. The highly visible box truss bridge proposed would lead to a new 3 hectare public park currently under construction.
In the hopes of avioding getting stuck with a thoroughly unremarkable design for this future gateway to the city, UrbanToronto has initiated a Design Charette where individuals have submitted their own designs for the bridge to be assessed by the voting public (50%) and a selected jury of architects, planners and community leaders (50%).
Some of the design submissions:
Designer: Mackenzie Keast
Designer: Nathaniel Addison & Khalid Al Nasser
