September 9, 2013 by STAFF REPORT

Infrastructure Ontario is seeking landscape architects with the expertise and capacity to design an urban park and waterfront trail along the east island of Ontario Place.

The government agency has issued a request for proposals for the park and trail project that will link into a 780-kilometre waterfront trail system, including parts of the Trans Canada Trail Ontario route and the Martin Goodman trail.

Interested bidders will need to provide a statement of design intent, examples of similar projects and an overview of their firm’s proposed project team. Bids will be evaluated to make sure all criteria are met and the successful architect will be announced this fall.

Once the architect is chosen, the public will have the opportunity to provide their input as part of the design phase. The final designs will be unveiled in the spring of 2014.

Infrastructure Ontario will oversee the competitive procurement and construction of the park and trail, which will take place in three phases in 2014:

  • Parking lot removal and site preparation (spring)
  • Underground infrastructure and servicing (summer)
  • Construction of the park and its surface-level amenities (fall)
