DTAH Associate, See-Yin Lim will be presenting The Port Lands Flood Protection and Enabling Infrastructure Project: Green Infrastructure and Sustainable Placemaking at the Grey to Green 2021 Conference on Wednesday June 16, 2021, at 1:15pm EDT with Shannon Baker from Waterfront Toronto. Shannon will also lead a virtual tour of the Port Lands Flood Protection and Enabling Infrastructure Project on Tuesday June 15, 2021 at 10:15am EDT. DTAH is part of a collaborative team to design and implement the infrastructure, streets, and integrated public realm that will support future city-building initiatives within Toronto’s Port Lands.
The presentation explores the comprehensive vision for the Port Lands, which uses landscape as its organizing structure. With the reconstruction of three major roads: Cherry Street, Commissioners Street, and Don Roadway, a low impact development approach has been adopted to manage stormwater, provide passive irrigation of streetscapes, and to promote biodiversity. A sustainable and integrated design approach is underway in the Portlands, knitting the Public realm, the parks, and the river together to create a cohesive green space.
