Construction is moving along at Rees and Simcoe – West 8

West 8 announced

“Construction is moving along at both the Rees and Simcoe wavedecks. The wavedecks, which will open this summer, will provide unique gateways to the waterfront of Toronto and will create more publicly accessible spaces. Over the next few weeks, construction activities will include H-pile installation on the north wall at the Simcoe Slip and fish habitat installation at Rees Slip.

The two new wavedecks are part of a series of three. The first one, the Spadina wavedeck, was opened in September 2008. The wavedecks are part of the first phase of implementation of a strategic masterplan for the Toronto Central Waterfront prepared by West 8 + DTAH, see also:
