The Port Lands Flood Protection and Enabling Infrastructure project is the redevelopment of one of the largest portions of under-developed land in a major urban core in North America. Located along the shore of Lake Ontario southeast of Toronto’s downtown core, the project will include substantial soil remediation, a new mounh for the Don River, and critical infrastructure for flood resilience to unlock the 325-hectare site for residential and commercial development.
In January of 2018, work began on the Cherry Street Stormwater and Lakefilling project. The project will stabilize the shoreline under flood conditions, enhancing aquatic habitat, and allow for the realignment of Cheery Street. Work on this section of the project is expected to be completed by March of 2020.
