Or even better, maybe a photo-realistic but witty/surrealist mural of the promenade extending past Redpath to Jarvis slip. Something akin to the Besant mural at Gooderham/Flatiron building.
I love both of these ideas.Maybe cover that wall in mirror, that would create a neat effect of the promenade going on forever rather than just a dead end.
I agree! This is right at the foot of Yonge Street so it is a central as you can get on the waterfront and in the coming years, this area will be dense with many people, so it's a huge missed opportunity to not use this area in a much more prominant, animated way. It's a rather dull area as it is now, with few people enjoying the public space.I'm not a fan of how it deadens a large amount of central waterfront land. The blocks that this project occupies lack vibrancy and a destination factor. I wouldn't mind a residential enclave if it were on the edge of the downtown waterfront area, but it's a central site near Yonge Street. There are no animating features at the water's edge like restaurants or galleries.
