Bathurst Quay ribbon-cutting and ground-breaking event
The event was held on November 2, 2021 to celebrate the completion of dockwall repairs and official opening of a new waterfront promenade (completed in late 2020) and launch next phase of construction for the plan (two projects starting Fall 2021) including:
restoration of the heritage-designated Canada Malting silos (to be completed in 2023)
repurposing of a derelict office building into a new waterfront hub for arts and culture by the Canada Ireland Foundation (to be completed in 2023)
There was also a display of renderings and plans for a revitalized and expanded public realm, including a new waterfront plaza on the silo property, streetscape improvements, and a planned public art mural (construction planned to start Summer 2022).
