Waterfront Toronto – Jack Layton Ferry Terminal Phase 1A

By February 13, 2023 No Comments

This project is for the initial stage of the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbour Square Park revitalization. The project consists of the reconstruction of the existing promenade from Queens Quay at Bay St, to the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal ticket booth; complete with excavation and removals of all the existing features, installation of new reinforced granular backfill and installation of new subsurface drainage. To allow for emergency vehicular access and to promote longevity for the planned planting, over 900 m2 of Root Space Soil Cell system is installed below grade. The existing maple leaf pattern on Queens Quay is carried through the reconstructed promenade through the use of granite unit paving. The preservation of the existing statue of Jack Layton is enhanced by the construction of new stairs and asphalt ramp, including pedestrian landing surrounding the statue. The promenade is complete with tree planting and other landscape improvements consistent with inviting park spaces throughout City of Toronto. The Jack Layton Ferry Terminal promenade and City of Toronto Harbour Square Park will also receive upgraded lighting features and new asphalt pathways to reduce congestion of pedestrian traffic. The revised grading and landscape layout for this project will serve to provide a better view of the waterfront and to increase the capacity for pedestrian traffic to and from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal.
