The largest set of images ever inputted to one of our dataBase files is now live for the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal Design Competition currently being held by Waterfront Toronto. Revealed yesterday at City Hall, and presented by the teams yesterday evening, we have 83 images in our dataBase file of the concept designs.

Over the past several years, Waterfront Toronto has been improving our "blue edge" to the east and west of the Ferry Terminal with notable successes in the Harbourfront area and at the Sugar Beach/Sherbourne Common area, but little has been done in this central portion of the Toronto Waterfront. The revitalization of the Ferry Terminal area seeks to correct what seems like an oversight at the moment, help knit the east and west waterfront improvements together, and provide a worthy departure and arrival point to and from the Toronto Islands.

The entries represent a starting point for an eventual final design to be created by the winner—or winners—of the competition. A panel of experts in architecture, landscape architecture and planning will choose one team or more to win the commission to replace the current aging and inadequate ferry terminal and to improve the surrounding waters edge and parkland spaces. The experts are looking for your input, by this coming Saturday March 21 at midnight. Check out the images in our dataBase file now, linked below, and stay tuned for our stories on each entry.
