Villiers Island Precinct Plan
2013 - Present
The Villiers Island Precinct is one of the premier redevelopment sites on Toronto’s waterfront, providing exceptional views of the City’s skyline. It is expected to form a gateway from the West Don Lands and East Bayfront to the rest of the Port Lands, and will be located at the mouth of the renaturalized Don River.
Waterfront Toronto retained Urban Strategies in 2013 as the lead consultant to prepare a precinct plan for the area. Our team’s work builds on the design and technical work completed for the Lower Don Lands and Port Lands, incorporating the technical requirements for flood protection. The Villiers Island Precinct Plan will establish design and development objectives, secondary streets and blocks, linkages between local parks and open spaces, built form controls, and other mechanisms to facilitate comprehensive revitalization and high-quality development.
