5 Waterfront Developments From Around The World


It’s already begun and it’s just going to get bigger and better.


What are we talking about? Toronto’s Waterfront Development of course!
Plans have been in motion for years now, and changes can already be seen. No longer a post-industrial, forgotten area of the city – the Toronto waterfront has transformed into a vibrant community, whose new architectural and public space developments are gaining international attention. Among the revitalization projects (including all three phases of Pier 27!) are a pedestrian and cyclist bridge, a visitor’s centre, and a park beneath the Gardiner. While all of this new development is under way in our city – let’s take a look at five waterfront developments from around the world that we love right now. Continue reading

The Transformation of Corktown Common

Corktown Common has raised the bar for public parks within Toronto. This area has seen a huge transformation in the past few years. Since construction wrapped up and the park opened in 2013, it has established itself as a stunning green space for Toronto and brings together the community east end and along the waterfront.

You may have heard about Corktown Common, but how much do you really know about this park? Continue reading

Waterfront WaveDecks: More Than Meets the Eye


If you’ve walked along the Toronto waterfront in recent years, there’s no doubt that you’ve noticed the various WaveDecks along it. These wooden structures along the waterfront serve more of a purpose than simply looking good. They appear in various places along the waterfront in the areas between Bathurst Street and Parliament Street, and while they look great along the water, they also help to provide a naturalized environment for the aquatic life in our waters.

How Sweet It Is: Our Recap of Sugar Shack TO


We were so happy to attend and have our developer, Cityzen, be a sponsor of the first annual Sugar Shack Toronto event!

The cabane à sucre was hosted by Waterfront Toronto and took place all weekend long at Sugar Beach. Close to 8,000 visitors came out to get a dose of traditional Québécois food, music, and fun activities like ice sculpting. There’s no question that the hit of the event was the maple taffy stand – people were lined up on both Saturday and Sunday to get a taste of the sweet treat! It was the perfect way to take in the beautiful spring weather we had this past weekend and spend some time on the waterfront.

If you didn’t get a chance to pop by Sugar Shack Toronto this year, here’s a sneak peek at what you missed:






Thank you to Waterfront Toronto for hosting this awesome event! See you all next year.

Phase 1 & 2 Win Silver at the Canadian National Pool & Spa Association Awards!

Pier 27 Pool

If there’s one thing we pride ourselves on, it’s working with great designers across all aspects of our projects. Everything from the interior, exterior, to amenity design is carefully planned out so that our owners not only have a functional and liveable space, but so they’re proud to show it off.

Back in December our work at Pier 27 Phase 1 and 2 with Munge Leung, architects Alliance, and Dominus, was honoured by the Canadian National Pool and Spa Association at the 35th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference and Expo in Niagara. The two-day expo had over 125 companies from the pool and spa industry showing off their products, in addition to the National Awards ceremony that took place. We’re happy to announce that the pools at both Phase 1 and 2 of Pier 27 took home Silver Awards at the ceremony: Best Special Use Pool Across Canada and Best Public Swim Spa! Continue reading
