Follow Shawn Micallef for the next few days here on Spacing as he strolls the Green Line, a five kilometre-long hydro corridor that passes through midtown Toronto between Davenport and Dupont roads. Shawn will cross a variety of neighbourhoods and landmarks as he follows the power lines from Davenport Village to the Annex. It’s a great route through Toronto now, but as you’ll see, there is lots of potential for it can be much better
You can contribute to a new vision for the public use of the hydro corridor by entering the Green Line Ideas Competition. See greenlinetoronto.ca to submit your ideas for how the space created by this long, linear piece of infrastructure can be transformed into exemplary public space and a pedestrian and cycling link for everyone to enjoy.
The competition opens on December 5 and is being organized by Workshop Architecture with support from Spacing, Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Association of Architects, Astley Gilbert, and many more.
