The Toronto waterfront is the lakeshore of Lake Ontario in the City of Toronto, Ontario. Lake Ontario is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. Toronto (təˈrɒntoʊ colloquially pronounced or) is the largest city in Canada and is the provincial capital of Ontario Ontario (ɒnˈtɛrioʊ is a province located in the central part of Canada, the largest by population and second largest after Quebec It spans 46 kilometres between the mouth of Etobicoke Creek in the west, and the Rouge River in the East. Etobicoke Creek (ɛˈtoʊbɨkoʊ) is one of the many creeks running through Toronto, Ontario and the Toronto Area into Lake Ontario The Rouge River is a two river system Little Rouge and Rouge River are in the east and the northeast parts of Toronto and begin at the Oak Ridges Moraine near The entire lakeshore has been significantly altered from its natural glaciated state prior to European settlement.
Since the last ice age, silt deposits, borne mostly from the erosion of the Scarborough Bluffs and the eluvial rivers to the east were swept by strong, natural Lake Ontario currents creating prominent fingers of land away from the lakeshore in the current central waterfront area, including the Toronto Islands. Yonge Street (pronounced "young" is a major arterial street in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and its northern Suburbs It was formerly The Scarborough Bluffs are an Escarpment in Scarborough Ontario along the shoreline of Lake Ontario. In Geology, eluvium or eluvial deposits are those geological deposits and Soils that are derived by in situ Weathering or weathering The Toronto Islands are a chain of small Islands in Lake Ontario. The shore of Lake Ontario (at least within present-day Toronto Harbour) is mostly landfill, extending a kilometre or more from the natural shoreline. Toronto Harbour is a bay on the north shore of Lake Ontario, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Adding to the existing silt deposits, Ashbridges Bay was filled in and the Portlands area (Cherry St to Leslie St) was created in the early 1900s. The Port Lands (also known as Portlands) of Toronto, Ontario, Canada are an industrial and recreational neighbourhood located southwest of downtown The bay was filled in partly due to concerns about public health – locals had disposed of sewage, farm animal carcasses and household waste in the bay for years. During this period the Don River, which used to flow into the bay to the south-west, was diverted (straightened) toward the harbour, first directly southward and later westward through the current configuration of the Keating Channel. This article is about the river in Toronto Canada For other rivers with the same name see Don River (disambiguation. The Keating Channel is a short waterway in the inner Harbour of Toronto Ontario on Lake Ontario. Currently there are proposals to restore the original natural watercourse of the Don, which would bring it closer to the downtown core. The modern harbour area was mostly formed through landfill in the years around the First World War, to allow for deeper container vessel wharf access. World War I (abbreviated WWI; also known as the First World War, the Great War, and the War to End All
The waterfront functioned as an important industrial area for many years, providing shipping access to communities from Port Union in the east to Mimico in the west. Industry began to move out in droves the 1970s, leaving the public with heavily polluted sites (some of the main uses of the waterfront were oil and coal storage, waste disposal and incineration, and heavy manufacturing especially in Toronto harbour). The first efforts at change were launched in the 1920s shortly after the War. As an important promise of the 1972 Canadian election the Federal Liberals promised to improve Toronto's waterfront. The Canadian federal election of 1972 was held on October 30 1972 to elect members of the Canadian House of Commons of the 29th Parliament of Canada The Parliament of Canada (Parlement du Canada is Canada 's legislative branch, seated at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario. The Liberal Party of Canada ( Parti libéral du Canada) colloquially known as the Grits (originally " Clear Grits " is a major Canadian political The federal government gave the heavily polluted lands to the City of Toronto, but the city had no funds to clean up the 150 years of industrial pollution. Some buildings, such as Queen's Quay Terminal and Harbourfront Centre were remodelled, and others demolished and replaced by new structures. Queen's Quay Terminal was a cold storage facility the Toronto Terminal Warehouse built in 1926 by Moores & Dunford (NYC and converted to a condo/mall complex in 1983 (The southwest section Harbourfront Centre is a key cultural facility on Toronto, Ontario 's waterfront, situated at 235 Queen's Quay West In this same period the industrial areas just north of the waterfront along the CN rail lines were also being abandoned and redeveloped. The nearby CN Tower and SkyDome (now Rogers Centre) were also linked to improving the area. The CN Tower, located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a communications and tourist Tower standing tall SkyDome redirects here for other uses see SkyDome (disambiguation These projects, with the exception of the tower, saw massive cost overruns and became heavily criticized.

Toronto's bids for the 1996 and 2008 Summer Olympics saw plans for much of the new facilities to be located along the waterfront, with all three levels of government committed to spending a great deal of money if the games were won, but on both attempts Toronto lost its bid due to the lack of diversity in facilities either planned or in situ and, except for further commercial condominium development at Harbourfront offering grandiose views of the water, the waterfront was unchanged.

In June 2004, the company Canadian American Transportation Systems (CATS) began regular passenger/vehicle ferry service between Pier 52 and Rochester, New York using the vessel Spirit of Ontario I. "MMIV" redirects here For the Modest Mouse album see " Baron von Bullshit Rides Again " Canadian American Transportation Systems, or "CATS" was a company based in Rochester New York which initiated a passenger/vehicle ferry service on Lake Ontario Rochester is a city in Monroe County, New York State, south of Lake Ontario in the United States. Spirit of Ontario I is the former name of Tanger Jet II, an Auto Express 86 Class wave piercing catamaran passenger-vehicle ferry constructed The service used a marketing name called "The Breeze". While Rochester had a custom-built ferry terminal, the Toronto terminal was a temporary facility, near the end of Cherry Street for security and customs screening facilities while a permanent marine passenger terminal was still under consideration for construction. CATS discontinued the service after only 11 weeks; among the problems cited was the absence of a permanent marine passenger terminal in Toronto and literally no Canadian interest in the service. The Toronto Economic Development Corp [TEDCO] was not properly consulted by the American interests who combined with the Mayor saw little political favour in seeing the project through from the City of Toronto's point of view. The vessel was sold in a bankruptcy sale in February 2005 to Rochester Ferry Company LLC, a subsidiary of the City of Rochester.

Mayor David Miller canceled the plans for the bridge soon after winning office. David Raymond Miller (born December 26, 1958) is a Canadian politician
To the east of Cherry Street is another area that is partially industrial and partially abandoned known as the Portlands. The Port Lands (also known as Portlands) of Toronto, Ontario, Canada are an industrial and recreational neighbourhood located southwest of downtown This area is home to the shuttered Hearn Generating Station and the Portlands Energy Centre, which is currently under construction. The Richard L Hearn Generating Station (named after Richard L Hearn) is an out of service electrical generating station in Toronto. The Portlands Energy Centre is a 550- Megawatt Natural gas electrical generating station that is nearing completion on the Toronto waterfront There are long-term plans to transform this area into a mix of commercial and residential developments, but no firm proposals have been developed, except a new Film Studio sponsored by TEDCO. The southern portion of the Portlands was intended to be an outer harbour, but the demand for such a harbour never developed. Instead this area today home to Cherry Beach, while the large breakwater known as the Leslie Street Spit is today a popular park and birding area. Cherry Beach is a lakeside park located at the foot of Cherry Street just south of Unwin Avenue in Toronto Ontario, Canada. Construction and evolution The now defunct Toronto Harbour Commission (THC began construction of the peninsula in the late 1950s
East of the Portlands begins the well-known Beaches area of Toronto. The Beaches is a neighbourhood and popular tourist destination located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This prosperous part of the city is named after the series of four connected beaches that lie along this section of the lakeshore. The western boundary of this region was once home to the Greenwood Raceway. Greenwood Raceway is a defunct Horse racing facility in Toronto. The racetrack was demolished in the 1990s and a new residential neighbourhood was constructed in its stead. The eastern boundary is the R. C.

The Scarborough portion of the waterfront is dominated by the Scarborough Bluffs, a series of cliffs that run along the lakeshore. Scarborough (ˈskɑrˌbəroʊ ( 2001 Census 593297 is the area that forms the eastern part of the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada The Scarborough Bluffs are an Escarpment in Scarborough Ontario along the shoreline of Lake Ontario. On the top of the cliffs are a number of suburban neighbourhoods such as Cliffside, Cliffcrest, Scarborough Village, Guildwood and West Hill. Cliffcrest is a neighborhood in the city of Toronto, Canada —more specifically located in Scarborough. Scarborough Village or Scarborough Heights is a small community in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Guildwood, often called "Guildwood Village" is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. West Hill is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the eastern end of the city in the former city of Scarborough. This area is also home to large manicured properties such as Rosetta McClain Gardens and extensive grounds of the St. Augustine Seminary. St Augustine's Seminary is the archdiocesan Seminary of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, in Canada. The bluffs end at the deep ravine of Highland Creek. Highland Creek is a River in Scarborough, part of Toronto, Ontario, Canada that empties into Lake Ontario at The most prominent site along the creek juncture with the lakeshore is Bluffer's Park, a large park and marina built on fill below the bluffs.
East of Highland Creek is Port Union, named after a Port facility that existed there from 1832 to 1873 and disappeared with the arrival of the Grand Trunk Railway (now known as the Canadian National Railway). Port Union is an upper middle class neighbourhood on the eastern border of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The arrival of the railway totally destroyed the mouth of the Rouge River. The Rouge River is a two river system Little Rouge and Rouge River are in the east and the northeast parts of Toronto and begin at the Oak Ridges Moraine near There is currently restoration and regeneration work underway at the old Port Union site. Between Highland Creek and Chesterton Shores west of the Rouge River is the old site of Port Union so named due to the existence of a Port facility that existed there from 1832 to 1873. Port Union may refer to Port Union Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada Port Union Ohio, United States Port Union The community was centered on the Adams Creek which was the site of a local ship builder who worked for the local merchants in the area which also had a winter harbour up the mouth of the Rouge River Valley. The Rouge River is a two river system Little Rouge and Rouge River are in the east and the northeast parts of Toronto and begin at the Oak Ridges Moraine near This little harbour disappeared in the late 1870’s with the arrival of the Grand Trunk Railway now known as CN. Canadian National Railway The removal of the harbour and the creation of the railway berm at the Rouge River created a marsh area, the infamous wet lands, north of the current bridge which became an environmental disaster totally destroying the mouth of the Rouge River.
To the east, the lakeshore intersects with the border of the City of Toronto and Pickering at the Rouge River delta and the wetlands created by the Grand Trunk in 1885. Pickering is a City located immediately east of Toronto in Durham Region, Ontario, Canada
In late 1999, the most recent plans to revitalise the central area of the Waterfront (limited to that located between Dufferin Street and Leslie Street) were unveiled and the Toronto Waterfront Revitalisation Corporation -TWRC was set up. The corporation is guided by a nine-member board of directors with three members appointed by each of the three (Federal, Provincial and Municipal) levels of government. All three levels appointed the Chair, President and Chief Financial Officer with the first two Robert Fung and John Campbell receiving an annual salary of $300,000+ . In 2003, the corporation appointed a new CEO and President. The annual budget for the Toronto Waterfront is $17 billion with the vast majority of funds focused on the central Toronto waterfront. As of January 2008 no actual development has occurred in the form of residential, institutional or commercial buildings.
The current revitalisation exercise has seen some progress on planning for areas such as the East Bayfront (Yonge Street to Cherry Street) and the West Don Lands (North of the railway tracks and between Parliament Street and the Don River). This article is about the river in Toronto Canada For other rivers with the same name see Don River (disambiguation.
There have been concerns raised in the community that ecology is being put behind the drive for city building. There is also concern that projects are moving forward without a sustainable integrated energy strategy, even though the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation (TWRC) budgeted $50 million dollars to undertake such a study early on in the process. The Province of Ontario knowing full well the "black" nature of the sub-soil and land has agreed with the Federal Government to waive all environmental studies in order to move development along. Most people know the pollution is there, including the Federal Government which donated the land to the City of Toronto as a 1967 Centennial gift.
Anti-poverty activists have also questioned plans that do not include subsidized housing or help for the poor.
With the restructuring at the city, the new department responsible for the waterfront is now the Toronto Waterfront Secretariat Division which now competes directly with the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corp. Nonetheless, other organizations from the city and the Province have undertaken activities in the absence of results from the TWRC. Those include a city beach (HTo Park) by the city's own Parks Department, a Film Studio in the Portlands by the Toronto Economic Development Corporation (TEDCO), a Soccer Stadium by the Exhibition Place Corporation, a flood control berm in the former Ataratiri lands by the Ontario Realty Corporation (ORC) and a federally-funded Rowing Course in the Western Beaches completed by the TRCA.
The Toronto Waterfront has seen at least 15 design charettes over the last 65 years, the most recent being the Innovative Design Competition for the Central Waterfront took place in 2006. This charette was won by a team led by West 8, an architecture firm from Rotterdam in joint venture with DTAH (du Toit Allsopp Hillier), a Toronto architecture, landscape architecture and urban design firm. Rotterdam (pronounced) is the 2nd-largest City by population in the Netherlands, located in the province of The plan aims to provide a bold new face for the central waterfront. The design includes a wide promenade along the water and extensive green space. Bridges rising from the boardwalk and spanning the ends of the slips will provide continuous public access to the lakeshore. In the scheme, the southern half of Queens Quay will be turned into a pedestrian walkway which the architect envisions will become Toronto's version of the La Rambla, Barcelona's celebrated pedestrian route. Queens Quay can refer to Queens Quay Belfast Queen's Quay (Toronto The proposal also emphasizes the need for stronger north-south connections between the harbour and the downtown core. The first phase is to be completed by 2008 provided that proper funding is secured. As of January 2008 no such work has been undertaken but private developers have begun construction of a condominium complex at the foot of Yonge Street and TEDCO started construction of a Toronto headquarters for media company Corus Entertainment Inc.
Wharfs existed along Toronto's waterfront in the 19th Century, but they have since been replaced by quays. Toronto (təˈrɒntoʊ colloquially pronounced or) is the largest city in Canada and is the provincial capital of Ontario The 19th century of the Common Era began on January 1, 1801 and ended on December 31, 1900, according to the Gregorian calendar A quay, pronounced 'key' is a Wharf or bank where Ships and other vessels are loaded Most of the former wharfs disappeared when the waterfront was filled in along with the now "missing" Creeks of Toronto.
