Waterfront Toronto has broken ground on Sherbourne Park, a new $28.7 million project that will transform a former industrial area into public green space on the lake.
Located just east of Lower Sherbourne Street, the 1.5 hectare park spans more than two city blocks, from Lake Ontario in the south to Lakeshore Blvd. in the north, on both sides of Queens Quay.
Designed by landscape architects Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg in association with The Planning Partnership and inspired by the Canadian lakeside experience, the year-round park is scheduled to open next summer. Eastern Construction Co. Ltd. has been appointed construction manager. Subtrade contracts have been awarded to Anchor Shoring & Caissons Ltd., Atlas Dewatering Corp., Coreydale Contracting Co., and Alliance Forming Ltd.
