West 8 urban design & landscape architecture creates groundbreaking urban designs by
understanding the contemporary urban landscape as primarily artificial, a multi-dimensional
evolution of the designed and un-designed. West 8 uses ecology, infrastructure, weather
conditions, building programs and people themselves in a playful and engaging manner to
encourage the public to understand and take ownership of spaces.
Du Toit Allsopp Hillier is an extremely well respected landscape architecture firm with proven expertise in urban design and integration with civil engineering. Their planning
work is focused on urban design and they approach the related professions in the same way as they have organized their firm, as inseparable and vital components of planning
and design.

Agenerous dimension Ior the Primary
WaterIront is essential to establish the
appropriate metropolitan scale oI the lake-
Iront. An 18m ROW is the new minimum
standard width Ior the water`s edge prom-
enade. This dimension is necessary to
accomodate the ideal section, based upon:
the minimum spacing oI trees to allow
Ior a dense, green promenade with ade-
quate room Ior trees to establish a solid
root zone; the allowance Ior a mix oI diI-
Ierent types oI movement including walk-
ing, jogging and in-line skating; and the
appropriate diversity oI spatial quality that
allows Ior shade and protection within the
tree canopy and the openess and exposure
along the lake edge.
The promenade is public and continuous,
extending the length oI the central water-
Iront. It must adapt to a range oI existing
contexts and conditions; thereIore, its sec-
tion is changing and fexible. However,
a consistency and coherence remains
through the material treatment along its
entire length. The promenade is Iormed
by two principal parts: a granite prom-
enade along the existing quay wall, plus
a slightly lowered cantilevered wooden
boardwalk that extends over the water.
These two parts work as a pair, to ensure
that a generous dimension is maintained.

There exists a clear image oI the
Canadian lakeIront; however, what
is Toronto`s identity and relation
to the water? How can we promote
the authentic Canadian lakeIront within
the metropolis?
2.
- Connectivity along the lakeIront
- Connectivity to the hinterland
- Representation oI identitites and
cultures on the waterIront
- Stitching & weaving the waterIront
and its tracks
3. Sustatinability
- Biotopes
- Stormwater
- Durable timber detailing
- Moonlight lighting
- Clean water
-Aquatic habitat
- Accessibility
- Public transit and bikes
-Green Foot
- Native Trees, robust landscape

The Maple LeaI icon is designed as a large
foating island that supports a robust commu-
nity oI foating submergent plants (water-lilies).
Filter curtains are proposed to extend Irom the
boardwalk that surrounds the wetland to the
lake bottom. Stormwater Irom the proposed
York Street overfow outlet Irom the bioflter
system will be piped to the wetland Ior treat-
ment. The flter curtains will serve to contain
suspended solids and contaminants within the
wetland to enhance treatment eIfciency.
