Jul 19, 2018

Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation have unveiled the ten creative design proposals as part of the international design competition for York Street Park and Rees Street Park. SCAPE, working with Toronto-based Baird Sampson Neuert Architects, as well as ARUP, Tillotson Lighting Design, and the public art consultant Curio, is one of 10 teams competing. York Street Park and Rees Street Park will be the two newest additions to the Toronto’s growing collection of beautiful and sustainable public spaces along the city’s main waterfront boulevard, Queens Quay. A new website, created for the design competition, will allow Torontonians to explore the design proposals and provide their feedback online.
