In late 2019, the City of Toronto and project partners broke ground on a six-phase, $50M revitalization of the historic Canada Malting property on Toronto's waterfront. At project completion in 2024, this collaborative city-building initiative will have will delivered restored heritage buildings, expanded parks and public realm, and new cultural programming spaces at the water's edge. This walk will include an overview of the dynamic new waterfront park starting construction on the property in Spring 2023; a discussion of the methods being used to restore the 100-year old iconic grain silos; and a description of the arts and cultural centre being built on the property by the City's non-profit partners at the Canada Ireland Foundation.
