Created by the governments of Canada and Ontario and by the City of Toronto, Waterfront Toronto is a public advocate and steward of waterfront revitalization in the city.
Waterfront Toronto is responsible for regenerating the downtown waterfront through projects including a potential CDN $1 billion flood proofing and infrastructure investment in the neighboring Port Lands precinct.
Mott MacDonald has won two contracts to provide engineering and technical input on projects for Waterfront Toronto. As part of the Canadian Urban Institute’s team, Mott MacDonald is providing technical expertise and a global perspective toward a new sustainability framework for Waterfront Toronto’s development projects.
Mott MacDonald is also providing structural engineering consulting services on a team led by DTAH, which is designing the public realm for the Bayside development at the eastern end of Toronto’s harbor waterfront. Structural modifications to the existing dock wall will enable the construction of the utilities, public area, and adjacent buildings, as well as the design of public elements and the in-water support structure for stormwater piping.
Our sustainability framework will build on international, national, and local best practices to set a new global standard for waterfront revitalization, focused on low carbon and climate resilient communities on the waterfront. Mott MacDonald’s team of global experts will apply its experience working on similar projects from around the world.
