City Building


Toronto was not intended to become the massive city it is today, so its infrastructure and built form are forever catching up to what it has become. Managing the Toronto area's rapid growth has become a major political and planning issue as "getting it right" means preserving the livable neighbourhoods we already have while allowing for appropriate growth. City Building is where architecture, urban planning and civic improvements meet and the kinds of communities we want to live in are created and maintained.
