An Early Peek at the Design Proposals for the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal

Five design teams are in competition to revamp one of the jewels of summertime Toronto.

With March’s early spring thaw giving Toronto its annual peep-show treatment, the time has come to think about waterfront activities like scarfing down soft-serve, or the annual trip to ride the Scrambler. In other words, the timing is just right to unveil new design proposals for the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbour Square Park.

Five design teams from around the world were chosen in January to compete for the redesign honour. Until the end of the week, their proposals will be on exhibition for public feedback in the Rotunda at City Hall, and will be unveiled tonight at 6 p.m. For those unable to make it out, here’s what those proposals look like.
